As a counselor and a Christian, my primary goal is not just to help individuals feel and function better, but also to help them know God and to have a deep relationship with Him. I find grace in the search for understanding and believe there is more value in questioning with an open mind and open heart. I strive for life-long learning, compassion, and selfless love on this journey toward a personally authentic and meaningful faith as co-creators with God in our lives. 

I believe that for counseling to be effective, both you and I must be actively involved in the goal setting and assessment process. This process will require in and out of session work for both of us. At times these changes in self perception, insight, and behavior may feel uncomfortable for you but, with practice, will become more routine. There are potential risks as well as benefits when beginning therapy but you must weigh the tremendous benefit against those risks.


Prior to entering into private practice, I was employed as an inpatient therapist by Integris Mental Health for 6 years. Prior to working at Integris Health, I was employed at the Parent’s Assistance Center and was involved in the development of the curriculum for therapeutic play groups for children ages 3 to 12. I have over 16 years of experience in counseling and I am honored as an advisor and contributor to the 5th Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders which is the foremost diagnostic tool utilized by all mental health professionals around the world.

Although my primary orientation to psychotherapy is Cognitive Behavioral, I am proficient in other theories. Although I have worked with many individuals having various mental health concerns, my specialties are depression, anxiety, trauma, and codependency. I was born and raised in Oklahoma City, OK and in my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family of 10. One of my current passions is the co-founding of a mental health foundation called Pier 34.
