License and Certifications
I am licensed to practice psychotherapy as a Licensed Professional Counselor (Okahoma, license #4972) and as a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor. I am also a National Certified Counselor and an international Certified Traumatologist.
I use an eclectic and individualized approach to psychotherapy, which draws from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Existential Therapy, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Psychotherapy, Art Therapy, Play Therapy, Somatic Psychotherapy, and Structural Family Therapy.
As a Certified Traumatologist, I work with individuals of all ages and families who have experienced or are in the midst of traumatic and/or stressful situations. I specialize in helping with a variety of issues, such as:
- grief and loss
- mental, verbal, physical, and sexual abuse
- adjustment issues
- unexpected or difficult pregnancy or loss of pregnancy
- human trafficking
- mood disorders
- parenting issues
- adoption issues
- spiritual issues
- women's issues
- self-esteem issues
- anger issues
- impulse control
- personal growth
If your child has trouble concentrating, behavioral issues, low self-esteem, fear or nervousness, detachment from others, hopelessness, irritability, or sleep disturbances, he or she may greatly benefit from my unique training and experience.
I work with children, adolescents, and adults in individual and/or family or group settings to help them gain insight into their current and unresolved individual and family problems, personality structure, and unhealthy patterns of behavior, thinking, and beliefs. This is accomplished through verbal discussion and/or creative processes. I believe the goal of therapy is to create healthier lifestyles, relationships, and behaviors, and to develop emotional wellness and self-awareness. My hope is that my clients will find a greater sense of hope, purpose, and peace in their lives, and that they will identify and build on their strengths as they work towards life goals.
Testing and Evaluation
I offer testing and evaluation services, specializing in psychotraumatology evalutations for children and adults. This includes diagnosis and treatment recommendations for PTSD. A report for court related purposes can be provided.
As a professional counselor licensed in the state of Oklahoma as a clinical supervisor (LPC-S), I provide clinical supervision to those whom are LPC licensure candidates or are completing professional counseling internships. Contact me to set up an initial consultation.
As a Certified Compassion Fatigue Educator I provide education, support, and consultation to those who are in the helping professions. Continuing Education credits may be available.
Online Video Sessions
I provide online video therapy and education via a secure and HIPAA compliant platform. This service is not available for minors. I would be happy to talk with you to determine if this would be a good option for you.
