Serving Our Community For Over 10 Years
"Whether you THINK YOU CAN or you think you can't, YOU'RE RIGHT." - Henry Ford.
To me, counseling is all in the relationship. My approach is simple and straightforward Connect-Get the Story-Get to Work! I strive first and foremost to connect with my clients so I can fully understand their personal reality. I work with clients by focusing on the strengths that every child, teen, and parent already possess and then help them tap into their innate ability to overcome and adapt to whatever challenge they’re facing. I use a blend of positive psychology, CBT, and of course, PLAY to achieve real and lasting change for my clients. I consider being a Registered Play Therapist my biggest accomplishment, as well as showing my ongoing commitment to children's mental health.
Why kids and teens?? Simply put, It’s what I know best after almost ten years of working as an educator, Child Life Specialist, and school counselor. They’re also the most fun, and I believe they have the most potential for change and growth. I also provide parent coaching services because I want parents to not only love their children, but truly enjoy being with them! In parent coaching, I can use my teaching and developmental background to help parents understand children's behaviors and gain confidence in managing those behaviors while growing the parent-child relationship. I also enjoy presenting at local schools, churches, and mothers' groups on issues that are important to children and families.
As one of the founding partners of Family Connections Counseling, I have been blessed to be in private practice for almost fourteen years. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Texas State Board Approved Supervisor (LPC-S), as well as a Registered Play Therapist (RPT). I hold a Master’s Degree of Science in Counseling from the University of North Texas and a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Texas A&M University.
Most weekends, you will find me on the sidelines with my husband of twenty years, watching our two kids play soccer or whatever other sport is in season. I love to recharge by running with friends and traveling whenever I can. Family and friends are what keep me going!
