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), a CPTT (Certified Partner Trauma Therapist), and a CMAT (Certified Multiple Addiction Therapist – Financial Disorders) through IITAP. I’m a CCPS (Certified Clinical Partner Specialist) through APSATS and an IAT (Intimacy Anorexia Therapist) through AASAT. I am EMDR Trained and have training in Somatic Experiencing and Psychodrama, and am PIT (Post Induction Therapy) Trained. I am currently working towards my PhD in Clinical Sexology, along with certification as a sex therapist through AASECT. 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’ve published a set of three booklets that walk betrayers and partners through the disclosure process, along with a book of the Coupled Recovery™ handouts. I’m working on writing a series of 5 books called Recovering Connection™. One book addresses early recovery, which includes discovering truth and creating emotional safety. Another focuses on middle recovery, helping individuals and couples deepen empathy and connection. The third book in that trilogy looks at late recovery, helping individuals and relationships heal sexuality after betrayal or abuse. The other two books in the set include one that addresses surviving abandoned betrayal and one that helps parents know how to talk to their children as the parents go through the recovery process.

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.
