I am a family and marriage therapist licensed in Oklahoma and Missouri with over 19 years of experience working as a family and children's therapist, and as a crisis clinician through community mental health centers. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including trauma-based disorders, depression, anxiety, family relationship issues, parenting problems, ADHD, and ODD. I am also experienced in crisis care, and short-term inpatient care.
My therapy style is warm and interactive, but straightforward, and with a bit of respectful humor. I believe in treating all people with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, structural, client-centered, trauma-focused or trauma-informed therapy. I prefer to come alongside a family or individual in partnership rather than to lead or dictate them through resolving their struggles.
I look forward to working with you!
