I have been in private practice for over 19 years. I opened my practice in Abilene, Texas, before relocating to New Braunfels, Texas in October 2014. In addition to running my practice, I have worked as a clinician and administrator in non-profit organizations, residential treatment centers and inpatient psychiatric care.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the great state of Texas. I am also a Clinical Member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT). I specialize in various relationship issues, eating disorders/addiction, and trauma recovery. I believe in continually growing and educating myself as I regularly participate in clinical continuing education, conferences and peer consultations.
My professional counseling services come from a Christian/Biblical perspective, although not all of my clients are necessarily practicing Christians. I honor each of my clients’ right to self-determination regarding their spiritual journey and process in counseling sessions. I enjoy providing Christian professional counseling by integrating strong clinical skills with Biblical healing principles. As such, I have received advanced training in Andrew Miller’s HeartSync healing model, which is grounded in brain science and attachment theory and has found great advancement in working with mild to severe trauma recovery. I receive ministry oversight from David and Amy Black, owners and founders of Undivided Heart, Inc and The Gold Monarch Healing Center in Abilene, Texas. For more on HeartSync, click here.

I also offer Life and Leadership Coaching and Consulting for individuals, businesses, ministries and churches. I believe every person has gifts and a destiny to fulfill. It is my desire to help you reach your destiny and to live your best life in every area of life.
On a personal note, I am a happily married wife, mother of two amazing kids, an ex-athlete of several sports, soccer coach, singer/musician/worship leader, short-term missionary, and avid reader. I also love to travel and experience a variety of cultures while taking missions teams to do a variety of humanitarian work, especially among the very poor. I particularly enjoy helping heal and free those in the sex and labor trafficking industry.
