“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” — Helen Keller
My therapeutic foundation is one that focuses on strength, courage, and resilience of the individual and family. Family counseling focuses on the intense and often emotional bonds that individuals have with each other. Individuals cannot be understood only in isolation, but how each respond to the other and how patterns develop through time. Areas of expertise include the effects of childhood loss and grief throughout the individual and family life cycle, and social justice in mental health.
My credentials include a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology degree from The University of Texas in Tyler, Texas, and a Master of Science degree in Marriage and Family Counseling from the University of Central Texas in Killeen, Texas. In addition, I also have a doctoral degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Amridge University in Montgomery, Alabama. I also work as an Adjunct Psychology Professor at Wallace Community College.
