About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Marital and Family Therapist in Oklahoma. I have worked with individuals, couples and families with a variety of lifestyles including military, civilians, students, and more. My clients have given me the opportunity to work with them on issues including anxiety, chronic pain, stress, life changes, PTSD, family conflict, relationship issues, grief, parenting and ADHD.

My approach is to collaborate with you. I believe that if I understand you, then I can more helpful to you. I prefer not to judge what is right or wrong. Instead, I prefer to focus on what is helpful or not helpful. I am looking forward to learning about your strengths. I have trained in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotion-Focused Therapy, CBT for Chronic Pain, EMDR, Yoga, Trauma Focused Yoga, relaxation techniques, mindfulness, and more. My goal to work with you to find the approaches that will suit your needs.

Therapy takes courage. You have already taken the first step to reach out for help. The first step is always the most difficult. If you are motivated to continue the journey, I would love the opportunity to empower and support you in your journey.

Written by K.E. on Jun 29, 2020 after counseling with Andrea for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, intimacy-related issues, and parenting issues

Andrea has been amazing. She has been able to look at how I speak about things and find a way to help me work through them.

I appreciate having someone who can be honest with how I am looking at things. To respect what I am needing and teaching me new skills to manage how I am feeling.

I would recommend Andrea !!
