About me

I am an Arkansas-based, Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with 21 years’ experience working with trauma, personality disorders, and stress management. Along with other co-occurring issues including: depression, anxiety, panic attacks, bi-polar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive compulsive behaviors, and, of course, relationship challenges.

My experience includes individual and group therapy in residential and outpatient settings, working for the military as a Director of Mental Health for the Army National Guard for the state of Arkansas, Faculty and Primary Care Behavioral Health with the University of Arkansas and Medical Science as a clinician and educator of PCP’s of Behavioral Health and Psychology. I would describe my approach to therapy as eclectic, drawing on a variety of modalities to best serve a client’s needs and goals. The modalities that have proven most useful are: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Psychoanalytical, Mindfulness based therapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and holistic and integrative mental health.

Finally, I believe that therapy offers a unique opportunity for intensive emotional and intellectual growth so that one can be better equipped to lead a more productive and fulfilling life. An individual can begin to consider one's life from a different point of view by attaching new meaning to his/her past, explore new avenues for reaching life goals, decrease painful feelings and increase their ability to cope with life's stressors. I believe in the value of the therapeutic relationship and its influence in creating positive change.
