I encourage confidence in discussing problems/issues that are faced in therapy with honesty and openness. I am not here to judge your life but to help you facilitate the life you are striving to achieve.
I provide a safe and active play environment for children to work through emotions and areas of need through the use of toys, games, art, and communication. I believe that play is the natural communication for a child and that they have the ability to work through problems that arise when given the opportunity.

I am excited to be available to provide services in my home community and to serve those areas around Smith County. I have been working with youth in the mental health profession since 2003 and have experience in counseling, supervision, and consulting.
It is my belief that the family is our most important system and we should nourish those relationships in order to build a stronger system in the home. I provide support for parents who bring their child in for counseling.
