Thanks for your interest in my practice in Lewisville! After looking over the site please feel free to make a confidential call to my office if you would like to set a time when we can speak personally about any questions you might have.
I’m an LPC supervisor and former clinic director with 20+ years of success in helping others. My experience is broad, ranging from complicated relationships, marriage, mood disorders, and anxiety, to issues of sexuality, serious clinical syndromes and “unusual” circumstances. In addition to counseling, I spend a substantial amount of my time doing Life Coaching - helping people clarify their goals and especially helping them implement strategies for navigating around the pitfalls that threaten those goals.
You’ll find my approach is active yet non-judgmental, and always flexible. I bring considerable warmth, intelligence, and humor to my work, and I’m comfortable with many different approaches (cognitive, behavioral, psychodynamic…), but much of what makes this profession fun for me is discovering fresh approaches and solutions uniquely suited to the individual client. Along with careful attention to the personal influences at work in someone’s life, it is also important to me to carefully consider medical implications for my clients. Because of this, I try to stay well-informed regarding the connections between the physical self (such as influences on the brain itself), and the mental / emotional self.
I work from a practical, realistic perspective because, like you, I live in the real world where “right” answers are sometimes wrong, and where I tend to defeat my own best intentions.
My experience includes adventure therapy, experience with hundreds of adolescents, business experience, church-based work and business consulting.
Again, thanks for you interest in my practice. I hope you will feel free to make a confidential call to my office to schedule an appointment,or to set a time to speak with me personally with any further questions!
