I graduated from Abilene Christian University with a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2001. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and a licensed professional counselor (LPC). I counsel individuals, (both adults and adolescents), couples, and families, specializing in blended families. I have completed mediation training from the Dispute Resolution Center and Parent Aide training from ESCAPE Center.
I have over 25 years as a business professional meeting the challenges, the stresses, and the joys of managing work and family simultaneously. I am a breast cancer survivor, have been a single parent, and have experienced the hardships of company downsizing. I am solution focused and actively seek the strengths and competencies in my clients.
I have been married to Ed, and together we have successfully blended our families since 1974. We have two daughters and a son, all married. In my spare time I enjoy my eight grandchildren and traveling.
