About Me

It takes courage to ask for help and I applaud you for reaching out. The journey of life is fraught with snags but you don’t have to go it alone. I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Oklahoma with more than 27 years of experience. In those years I have successfully worked with Clients from a wide range pf cultures with many different problems. The journey is always enlightening and well worth the effort. Raised in Hot Springs, Arkansas, I attended the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville as an undergraduate and received my MS in Clinical Psychology from Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, LA in 1993.

My approach to therapy is warm, friendly and respectful. I have helped people with depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, bipolar disorder, career decisions, substance abuse, chronic pain and all types of trauma, including PTSD and Moral Injury. Trauma and substance abuse are particular areas of focus.

I use several different treatment modalities including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), Ego State therapy, CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, Family systems and other Client centered therapies. I will tailor our dialogue and develop your treatment plan to meet your specific needs.

I consider it an honor and a privilege to help others and I welcome the opportunity to work with you. There is reason to hope and I am here to help you find yours.

Mary is an amazing! She listens and finds solutions and helps you through them. I have never felt this comfortable with a Psychologist. Mary makes it really easy to communicate, she is so knowledgeable and shares it too. The tools and foundations she helps build have helped me so much.
