- Oklahoma License #5261
I am a practical, interactive, and compassionate therapist dedicated to helping clients find solutions. I make every effort to listen closely to my clients' needs, providing support in resolving challenges that are interrupting quality of life. By actively involving clients in developing a plan that will be most helpful, and with sensitivity and a genuine concern for their well-being, I work to help others build on strengths to identify and achieve their goals in personal growth.
I have a unique background in working with veterans, active duty service members, and their families. As well, I have extensive experience working with 1st Responders (to include law enforcement officers, firefighters, healthcare providers).
I have also developed special skill in working with couples who need healing or who want to strengthen their bond. By using evidence-based practices in relationship and attachment issues, I am often able to help couples find meaningful connections in their marriage and work through otherwise difficulty and painful situations.
I am an approved Oklahoma LPC-Supervisor and am currently accepting new supervisees.
