I am a licensed Marriage and Family therapist licensed in Texas and California. I have been licensed for 36 years during which time I have started a church counseling center, had a private practice, been an Executive Pastor in a local church, the Executive Director of the Pregnancy Assistance Center and then went back to private practice. But through it all what has energized me is people’s stories and watching them change and grow.
With talk therapy, my orientation is Family Systems – understanding how we became who we are as well as learning new skills for navigating life. For trauma, I utilize EMDR. And for foster/adoptive families I use T.B.R.I. In order to be effective though, my first goal is to establish a safe and trusting environment. I want all my clients to feel very comfortable in their session.
I have my B.A. from Santa Clara University and my M.A. from Fuller Theological Seminary. I am Certified in EMDR and a Practitioner of T.B.R.I.
I have been married for 40 years, have 3 sons, 2 daughters-in-law, 5 grandsons and friends that I love dearly. I take those relationships seriously because it is relationships that give the color to our lives. It is in the giving and receiving of love that we find out who we really are.
I would love to hear your story. Give me a call to arrange a meeting.
