Helping Clients Thrive
To help my clients thrive, I incorporate several theoretical orientations in my practice—frequently with a focus on mindfulness-based theories such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I employ an interpersonal process approach, believing that the here and now relationship between counselor and client is as important as theoretical orientation. I also believe it is essential to respect and honor the client’s dignity and autonomy as a person while at the same time using my training and skills to help them sort through whatever brings them into the counseling process.
My Calling as a Counselor and Coach
Counseling is a second career for me, but I knew it was the right fit because I love helping people get unstuck. I know what it is like to feel like the wheels have come off your wagon and you are stuck in a ditch. It is a privilege to come alongside clients and empower and assist them in repairing the wheels and getting back on the road.
Family is extremely important to me. I enjoy watching my husband of 30+ years and two sons play ice hockey. A native Texan, I also love cooking gourmet meals for friends and trying innovative restaurants. Some of my favorite pastimes include pilates, yoga, and taking walks, as well as reading books, watching movies, and sitting on the beach.
