I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and received my PhD from the University of North Texas.
I have 30 years of experience working with individuals, couples, families and adolescents. I am equally skilled working with individuals and couples. I treat anxiety, depression, panic attacks, bipolar disorder, individual growth, relationship problems, anger management and conflict negotiation skills, divorce adjustment, blended families, and parenting skills. I also work with individuals experiencing midlife or career issues, and I provide Christian counseling upon request.
I use John Gottman's research-based model for marriage counseling along with key concepts of Emotionally Focused Therapy. John Gottman's marital therapy techniques and Emotionally Focused Therapy techniques are the two most effective marital therapies based on outcome research.
