About me

Marriage, divorce, parenting, aging, caregiving, work and health concerns are common stressors in our world today. The mind and body are intertwined and we now know that stress impacts overall health. The process of change from self discovery to self reliance is a stressful endeavor in personal growth. My style focuses on a client's increased awareness and becoming mindful along their path. Solution focused methods address the identified problems for developing an action plan towards well being. An integrated approach supports the person to be fully involved in their own process of healing.

My work as an LMFT spans over 29 years of service to individuals, couples and families with issues in relationships and life transitions. That includes military families, families impacted by substance abuse, and those with chronic health concerns I am a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist in both Oklahoma and New Mexico.

In seeking a therapist, look for a potential to connect with the provider and their style. I would be happy to explore the possibility in providing support through your own growth process.

Dr. Parker has been a huge help with helping me move forward through a divorce and with all the hiccups that occur with coparenting. She is a good listener and has helped me with working on the fears of moving forward. Thank you - words can’t express how grateful I am to have her through the challenges I have faced and have overcome with her help and guidance. Thank you.

I worked with Dr. Parker for 10 months. It is the longest time I have committed to counseling and I am so glad it was with Dr. Parker. She was a great support during this year and helped me grow immensely. Dr. Parker helped me increase my self-confidence, manage my anxiety, and even learn about myself in areas I didn't expect to. She was compassionate, gentle, and empathetic. Always flexible with her schedule as well. I would 100% recommend Dr. Parker and if I find myself seeking BetterHelp services again, I would for sure continue to work with her. Thank you for everything Dr. Parker!

This was my first time trying online counselling and I felt so so lucky that I was matched with Dr Parker. I immediately felt comfortable opening up to Dr Parker from our very first session. We worked together for 2 months and what I had gained from our sessions have definitely been some of the best and most valuable advices and insights into myself I’ve ever received. Her compassion made it so easy for me to be open to explore and understand myself better. For the first time in some years, I feel like I had finally done some proper growing up and growing into my (better) self. For that I am so grateful to have worked with Dr Parker.
