I dedicate myself to combining sound psychological counseling with truth-based Biblical principles characterized by unconditional love and positive regard for those I treat. This helps my clients make behavioral, emotional, and situational changes to improve their life experience and fulfillment.
In addition to a Masters Degree in Counseling from Philadelphia Biblical University, I have 270 hours of addiction training and work alongside those recovering from addictions and codependency. I am a qualified and experienced mediator in both basic and family mediations in the state of Texas, having received my training at the University of Texas and the Dispute Resolution Center in Houston. I feel that mediation and counseling are helpful in opening the door to meaningful communication and resolving conflicts.
Helping others to heal is a passion for me, and I am experienced in treating a wide variety of issues. I deal with depression, anger, anxiety, and emotional exhaustion in men and women. I also work to empower adolescents in navigating a difficult world, and I designate a sizable portion of my practice to marriage counseling and relationship enhancement.
One of my specialties is guiding women (and men) whose spouses have been unfaithful. This process of healing includes the goal of restoring healthy balance to their lives whether the marriage continues or ends. I work hard at helping couples deal with their emotions and decide upon the next appropriate action in such a complex and painful situation.
I am a New Life Ministry approved counselor and traveled for ten years with New Life to various cities across the United States acting as a small group facilitator in New Life Weekends, “Healing is a Choice”, expansive seminars. Within that framework I have taught about forgiveness, relationship repair, anger management, grieving, weight control, rediscovering self and creating an open, loving and fulfilling life. I live in Katy with my husband. We enjoy trail riding our two paint horses
