I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT license #201348) who loves what I do! I have a practice in Lewisville, Texas and provide individual, couple, group, and family counseling, specializing in treating relationship issues, sex addiction and trauma.
My favorite quote is “Real is better than perfect,” by Dorothy Satten, and it is in multiple places in my office. I believe being authentic and open in our relationships builds connection with those that are most important to us. We are all working through something—whether it is trauma, addiction and/or relationship issues—and when we have people in our lives we can share those struggles with, the task does not appear so daunting because we know we are not alone. I would love to help you strengthen the relationships in your life!
I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Brigham Young University in 2004 and went on to receive my Master’s degree in Human Development and Family Science, with a specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy, from Oklahoma State University in 2007. I have received intensive training in each of my specialty areas of sex addiction, trauma and relationships.
I am a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist (CSAT) through Patrick Carnes’ International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP). I acquired training in treating trauma through Pia Mellody’s Post Induction Therapy Training (PITT). I am also EMDR, Level 1 & 2, trained, another highly respected trauma certification.
When I am not providing therapy, I enjoy traveling, trying new healthy recipes, doing home projects, spending time with family and friends, reading, and working out.
