About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC and Gender Specialist.  I have been in private practice for 27 years working with a variety of clientele. As a developmental therapist my early work was with women, family and children until the Oklahoma City bombing when I became more immersed in the field of trauma. At that time my focus leaned towards trauma survivors, first responders as well as participating as a debriefing response team member to man made and natural disasters.   My specialized training in women’s studies, pathological love relationships(those in relationships with Narcissists, Psychopaths and Sociopaths), cultural experiences, industry, problem solving, goal attainment and transition issues has most recently taken me in the direction of working more heavily with women’s issues and LGBTQ issues. I have a strong interest in helping and supporting transgender and gender non conforming individuals find their way. In this emerging field of gender awareness I can be of assistance to those who need help during the struggles of gender identity exploration.

I am a graduate from Southern Nazarene University in Counseling Psychology and The University of Central Oklahoma. I am clinically trained through WPATH and Gender Spectrum as well as a member.  I am also a proud member and supporter of the American Counseling Association , The American Psychological Association,  The Human Rights Campaign and PFLAG.  I have also  completed many hours of coursework in Buddhism and meditation with Buddha Mind and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction designed by the Jon Kabat-Zinn of the University of Massachusetts Medical School.

In addition to being an experienced clinician I am involved in neighborhood, civic, community, and social issues.  My love of being a business owner has also given me specific insight and skills in creating and cultivating a successful private practice.  Working together to create your tailored practice is a true delight.

I believe in the transformative nature of self awareness coupled with the dedication to continually grow. I take a stand for non conformity and celebrate the fact that we are all unique.  I believe in devoting our lives to living a beautiful life fully expressed. And with courage we all can take a leap of faith.

I believe in the JOY of true alignment.
