Welcome!  Now is a great time to make some positive changes. My specialties include working with couples and individual adults. We focus on building healthy relationships, setting boundaries, managing anxiety, OCD, ADHD, depression, exploring family dynamics and boosting coping skills. I also work with adult trauma, grief and challenging life seasons, divorce, and mid life transitions.

With couples, we practice effective communication, build understanding, set realistic expectations, and pursue emotional safety. We address family of origin and other individual struggles, and (re) create a meaningful connection with each other. My worldview is Christian.  We can include spirituality in your journey if you would like.

I am empathic, and that forms the foundation of what I do. From there we work on specific goals and decide on a therapy path together. Session frequency is flexible based on your preference and goals. We can schedule a consultation chat to make sure you feel good about the therapy relationship.  You are also welcome to reach out via email and ask any questions you may have about the therapeutic process.

My hobbies include cooking, baking (sort of) healthy foods, volunteering, relaxing, creative writing, local travel, practicing solitude and jogging.  I also love furry animals and have one high maintenance tuxedo kitty named Evangeline.

I grew up in southeast Kansas, moved to Texas as a young adult and have been here ever since, Dallas, Houston, Austin and Tyler.  I love the warm weather, and would really love to live near the beach as I consider nature one of the most healing experiences you can have.  I have had to work on overcoming anxiety, OCD tendencies and ADHD tendencies myself and understand the frustrations of those disorders as well as other life challenges.  I look forward to hearing from you, and cheering you on as you become the person you would most like to be.
