As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I provide individual counseling as well as enjoy facilitating family counseling and parent coaching to build on family strengths and increase cooperation, communication and overall family functioning. I consider myself as having an eclectic range of therapeutic approaches to be able to individualize my methodology based on client need. Some of my areas of focus and special training include: interactive play psychotherapy, narrative therapy, therapeutic art, sensory play, cognitive behavioral therapy and emotionally focused therapy. I strive for a holistic approach to address the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of each individual. Before entering into the clinical counseling setting, I worked as a behavioral therapist for Tulsa Public Schools. Providing therapeutic services in the academic setting allowed me to gain knowledge and experience in behavior planning, Indidivualized Education Plans and bridging behavioral needs with academic successes. I have found this knowledge especially helpful for client's with behavioral needs in the school setting. I enjoy helping the family advocate for their student's best interests on the road toward academic and behavioral success. My approach to counseling is to empower my clients and families so that upon termination of therapy services, they are better able to handle life’s difficulties and challenges on their own. I view myself as a teammate, standing alongside clients and families in their journey. I am here to assist, support, facilitate and provide them with necessary knowledge, skills and resources needed to tackle challenges in order to reach desired treatment goals.
