I enjoy helping people work through challenges and heal issues that are stopping them from feeling peace. I have a strong sense of respect for each of my clients and believe they are experts in their own lives. Each individual will have their own unique solution as each has their own unique situation. I work to provide a safe, compassionate, and non-judgmental environment for my clients and can offer tools that help them better understand and process issues they are dealing with.
I have worked in the field since 2009, specializing in sex/love addiction and betrayal. My experience includes individual, couple, and group counseling with both sex/love addicts and betrayed partners. I have experience running groups for female sex/love addicts, male sex/love addicts, betrayed partners of sex/love addicts, and couples workshops for sex/love addicts and betrayed partners (regardless of gender or sexual orientation). I have my master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and am fully licensed as a LMFT Supervisor in the state of Texas. Additionally, I am a CSAT (Certified Sex Addiction Therapist) and a CPTT (Certified Partner Trauma Therapist). I’m a CCPS (Certified Clinical Partner Specialist) and have training in working with Intimacy Anorexia. I am EMDR Trained and have training in Somatic Experiencing, Psychodrama, and PIT (Post Induction Therapy). I am currently working towards my PhD in Clinical Sexology, along with certification as a sex therapist. I volunteered with law enforcement for six years, initially with the Dallas Prostitute Diversion Initiative, then as a presenter at the Dallas John School, presenting on both pornography addiction and sexual addictions. I have presented at multiple professional conferences ranging from local to international levels, including ACA, the IITAP Symposium, SASH, AAMFT, TAMFT, and others, and have been a guest speaker at doctoral, graduate, undergraduate level classes.
I grew up in Massachusetts and have also lived in New York, Washington, Idaho, Rhode Island, and now Texas. My husband and I moved to DFW in 2005. We have been married since 1997 and have six children, five girls and a boy.

I have been in a private practice for over 15 years. During that time I have provided services to many clients related to issues of sexual addiction, porn addiction and associated sexual behavioral problems. I am also currently providing services at a local in-patient addiction treatment facility.
I am certified to work with clients suffering from Sex Addiction, Porn Addiction, and Problematic Sexual Behaviors. Additionally, I also provide sex therapy and i am trained to utilize EMDR (level one and two) in my work to help clients recover from trauma and shame.
Many of my past clients have told me they like my relaxed style and my use of humor to help the healing process. I also focus on reducing shame and stigma from the important work I do with my clients and many have also told me that the steps we took in therapy to remove these barriers helped them grow immensely and helped end their suffering.

I enjoy helping adults and adolescents detangle issues presenting in their lives. Whether these issues revolve around anxiety, depression, relational strife or addiction I am honored to unwind things with you. I am dedicated to the venture of building a therapeutic relationship with you for the sake of accomplishing the goals you have set out to fulfill.
Over the past few years I have worked extensively with individuals struggling with severe depression, debilitating anxiety, and loneliness among other troubles. These crises and more can evolve and lead into addiction. Addiction, in my opinion, is a screaming symptom of difficulties already at play. If you find yourself wrestling with any of the encumbrances described or find yourself in the midst of addiction I would appreciate the opportunity to help you through whatever it is that is burdening you.
In our journey together I hope to help you come to a better understanding of yourself and the environment around you. I can help make sense of situations that cause each individual to feel stuck. Thank you for considering walking this path with me and I hope to know you well in the future.

Above all things, I believe in hope. One of the most crushing blows of your life can occur when you feel like there’s no way out. Even when people are at their lowest, there is still hope for both individuals and relationships. That really defines me as a therapist. When problems seem insurmountable, having someone to work through the issues one piece at a time can be invaluable to the healing process. When I sit in sessions with clients, I know they can make it through what they’re facing. No matter how difficult the roadblocks are, I am confident that we can work to repair, rebuild, and restore. I’m here to offer a lifeline to individuals and relationships.
I am a MFT Intern and in the clinical portion of working towards a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. This is the final portion of my degree program and I am on target to graduate in May 2022. This is my second career. I hold five teaching certificates and worked as a teacher (Special Ed, English, History, and others) and as a Special Education Advocate at a state-wide level for over fifteen years. In my years as an educator, I saw wounds in families and decided to switch to counseling to help heal those wounds. I’ve found healing through doing my own therapeutic work and really enjoyed mentoring others and helping them find hope. I don’t remember a time in my life where I didn’t want to help others. I’m a native Texan, have been married since 1993, and have three adult daughters. I have life experiences and relational experiences that have helped me grow and see that there’s opportunities and growth for other people.
I believe clients are experts in their own lives and that, as a therapist, I can help them identify and refine their goals and achieve them. My goal is to work with you in a non-judgmental environment to support you as you create tools to help fight through your challenges and meet your needs. I work to be empathetic and view mistakes as an opportunity to grow. Together, we can work to find your path to healing.
