I specialize in treating Christian families suffering from the devastating effects of eating and mood/anxiety disorders.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Spring, TX
I have been a follower of Christ since my mid-twenties. I am active in my church and love serving others, especially by using music to lead worship for the children’s ministry. I am comfortable with allowing people to use their faith in their own or their children’s healing. I always let the clients take the lead in how they choose to incorporate their faith in our work together.
My expertise with children and their families began long before I transitioned to counseling. I was a public and private school teacher for over 15 years, and spent two years teaching and counseling at a school that treats children with mental, emotional, and behavioral struggles. I am currently earning my hours to become a Registered Play Therapist and have been trained in several play therapy methods for children age 3 to 10. I currently use play therapy regularly in my practice.
I have worked as a therapist from 2018 to the present at a partial hospitalization program for children, adolescents and adults with eating disorders. I have experience with all eating disorders, including , but not limited to, Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Binge Eating Disorder.
I have been trained in Emotion Focused Therapy, as well as Emotion Focused Family Therapy. I use the latter daily with my eating disorder clients and their families.
I also use Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Play Therapy with clients that will benefit.
I have been trained in ACT and use it with all of my adult and adolescent clients daily.
