I am dedicated to the support and recovery of individuals and partners suffering from their own addictions, betrayal, traumas, or codependency. I completed my master’s degree in counseling and development at Texas Woman's University. To further my training in this area of treatment, I began my training as Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist (CSAT) in January of 2014 to better serve sex addicts, their partners, and couples who are in their healing process. I enhanced my experience with addictions while working at Nexus Recovery Center, a nationally known facility that provides specialized substance abuse services to females who are invited to bring their children with them. I have also trained with Pia Melody on the topics of trauma, codependence, and love addiction.
I grew up in Arkansas, where I graduated from the University of Arkansas with a degree in Industrial Engineering. After 10 years in corporate America, I was given the opportunity to stay home with our twins. Five years later, it became evident that returning to school to become a psychotherapist was the next step. I have been on my own journey toward healing through therapy, treatment, meetings, and self-discovery over the last 16 years. Supporting others in their journey of self-reflection and healing has become my passion. Through my own recovery, I continue to find out who I am and learn new coping skills to handle life on life’s terms. I have lived in Dallas for 19 years and have become immersed in all that it has to offer.
My approach utilizes talk therapy and is collaborative, compassionate, empowering, and direct. I believe that as humans we have a right to live a life full of purpose, joy, pain, and peace. I believe that living the life that is intended can be blocked and obscured by our wounds and our thinking. My approach will help you discover new tools that will begin to shift your thinking, feelings, and even your behaviors. You deserve all the good that life has to offer and you don’t have to achieve it alone.
