At The Family Institute at Northwestern University, I received extensive education in treating individuals, couples, and families from pioneers and innovators in the field of family therapy. Unlike other programs, the Family Institute requires students to begin seeing clients during their first year of training. As a result of such a rigorous experience, upon graduation, I felt confident and ready to provide therapy to many different types of clients.
Once I began working in the mental health field, I continued my education through supervision with Dr. Adam Coffey. With his guidance, I further developed my identity as a therapist, strengthening my ability to integrate practical application of theory with the creation of authentic, supportive relationships. Dr. Coffey also encouraged my study of mindfulness-based practices. As I incorporated mindfulness into my therapeutic approach, I found it to be a powerful tool for re-energizing and transforming lives.
I continue to educate myself on new research and methods to enhance my skills as a therapist. It’s a requirement of my ongoing licensure with the Texas State Board, but it is also a way I remain a benefit to my clients.
I began my private practice in Denton, Texas in 2010 and transitioned to working full-time in Southlake, Texas in 2015. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, I went fully online to continue to provide my clients ongoing access to therapy. Since then, I have welcomed new clients into my practice and have decided to remain online as a telehealth provider for the foreseeable future.
I work primarily with couples and young adults from all over Texas. I welcome both unmarried and married couples and the LGBTQIA+ community.
