I am a Licensed Professional Counselor through the Arkansas Board of Examiners in Counseling (P0711067). I work with individuals, couples and families. My private practice is in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
With over 14 1/2 years experience as a licensed therapist, I currently serve a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of experience are school-age children, teens, individuals, couples, court-mandated clients, and military service members.
In addition to being a prominent relationship therapist, I consult with pastors, business owners, and school counselors.
I am an interactive, reality/solution-focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
I have a MSE (Master of Science in Education) in Counseling from Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, AR. Henderson's counseling program is a CACREP school. This recognizes HSU as having the highest standards of counselor preparation in America. My BME (Bachlor in Music Educaiton) is also from Henderson.
