- My Story
The most important thing I want people to know about me is that I do not view anyone pursuing therapy as a failure or lacking as a person. I view therapy as a collaborative process in which the client is just as important as the therapist! When you are having car troubles, you go to a mechanic. Seeking a trained therapist for life troubles is no different!
I graduated with my M.A. in Counseling from Dallas Baptist University and Oklahoma Baptist University with a B.A. in Family Psychology before that. I completed my 3,000 hours of supervised practice required for licensure at the Family Counseling Center in Fort Worth, TX.
In addition to my work counseling, I also have created a marriage education course called the Premarital Power Seminar. I also mentor new counselors at www.beginningcounselor.webs.com, blog for the American Counseling Association, and have written a book, The beginning Counselor's Survival Guide.
