What You Should Know About Me
I count it an honor to walk with clients through difficult circumstances, and also a joy to witness each client grow towards living their life in a way that is most authentic to how they were created. My recent professional experience includes working as a counselor at Killeen Counseling & Associates and as a therapist at Great Circle, a residential setting with teens.
In September 2016, I attended an intensive training at Texas Christian University’s Karen Purvis Institute of Child Development, where I studied Trust-Based Relational Intervention®. As a TBRI® practitioner, I aim to support child and adolescent clients by considering their needs holistically through connection, empowerment and correction principles.
I enjoy working with children, adolescents, families and female adults as they face issues of anxiety, depression, interpersonal relationships, identity, self-worth, shame, past trauma, attachment challenges, and emotional regulation. By integrating multiple theories of practice, I aim to provide individualized care and treatment for each client. I am particularly drawn towards using methods based in attachment theory, family systems theory, and other behavior-based theories.
I married my high school sweetheart in 2012, and I am continually grateful for his love, friendship and grace in our marriage. We have a son who brings indescribable joy to our family and getting to be his mom is a wonderful gift.
