Couples Counseling can be conducted with any couple in a committed relationship and wishing to improve and remaining in the relationship. Couples counseling is not effective if one member of the couple is not desiring to remain in the relationship. I am guided by Gottman Method Couples Therapy which is based upon Dr. John Gottman's research that began in the 1970's and continues to this day. This method is designed to help teach specific tools to deepen friendship and intimacy in your relationship. To help you manage conflicts, you will be given methods to manage resolvable problems and learn how to communicate about the issues. I am also guided by the work on Dr. Sue Johnson and Emotional Focused Therapy.
My experience with couples includes but is not limited to issues with Communication, Resentment, Infidelity, Emotional Affairs, Lack of Intimacy or Closeness, Arguing/Fighting, Transition Issues, Sexual Intimacy, Parenting, Blending Families, and Pre-Marital Counseling.
Individual Counseling give you the opportunity for you to openly talk about your thoughts and feelings in a safe, accepting, and confidential environment. My counseling style combines compassion, common sense, straight-talk, and clinical expertise in a relaxed, accepting, and comfortable environment. Whether you want to address a specific problem or improve your overall quality of life, together you can work to help you find both short-term relief and long-term solutions. My approach is tailored to fit individual needs. I am guided by the cognitive-behavioral model, which looks at the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Concepts and techniques from other theoretical perspectives are integrated as appropriate. I advocate balance and care for the person as a whole--body, mind, and spirit and pride myself in meeting my client where they are at as well as providing a non-judgemental environment.
My experience includes but is not limited to the following areas: Anxiety, Depression, Self-Esteem, Stress Management, Anger Management, Communication, Addiction, Loss and Grief, Domestic Violence, Life/Work Balance, Trauma and Abuse, Self-Injurious Behavior, Career Transition, Assertiveness Training, Conflict Resolution, Decision-Making, Job Stress and Burnout, Life Transitions, and Relationship Concerns.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor (#14584) and National Certified Counselor, and Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator. I obtained my Master's Degree in Counseling from the University of North Texas in 1995 and my L.P.C. in 1998. I started working in private practice in 2008, after working for a non-profit for 15 years, and co-founded Pecan Branch Counseling in 2010. I am actively involved in Texas Counseling Association as well as a member of American Counseling Association, and many other organizations both on the state and national level.
I am currently accepting application from LPC-Interns for supervision. Choosing an LPC supervisor is an important decision. You are trusting your supervisor to help you become fully licensed, as well as teaching you all the ins and outs of practice management, counseling theories, techniques and interventions, and more. It is important to interview several potential supervisors to make sure that you find someone whose style is compatible with yours.
I see the supervisory relationship as an equal partnership of education, mentoring, and mix of the personal and professional self. My goal is to help you develop your own path and personality as a therapist. I have worked in a variety of settings including private practice, non-profit agencies, and in outplacement settings as well as with a variety of populations including adolescents, adults, professionals, and couples with a variety of issues.
Supervision with me includes:
Weekly individual and/or group supervision sessions
In between session support through phone, email or Skype
Ability for Skype (video chat) supervision sessions if the need arises
Feedback and guidance on counseling techniques, interventions, ethical issues, and more
Review of case notes and documentation as needed
When appropriate, I will refer clients to you
Practical and real-world advice on how to start and maintain a private practice
If you think we may be a good fit for supervision, I encourage you to contact me to set up a complementary two-way interview. From there, we can decide if we want to work together.
