My growing up years were spent all over Texas and Kansas, but I graduated from high school in Conroe. College Station was my home in undergrad--WHOOP!--and once I received my BA in Psychology at Texas A & M, I moved on to Sam Houston State University for my masters in Clinical Psychology.
My work as a therapist started in 1999 at a Mental Health Mental Retardation center. I first worked with adults diagnosed with chronic mental health issues and then moved to work with children and families. I was fully licensed by the state of Texas in 2000 and received my registration as a play therapist in 2001.
My family moved to Denton in 2001 and I began working with extremely traumatized children who were unsafe for themselves and others. My work changed substantially in 2003 when I became a mother for the first time and a private Christian therapist. I've been working with children, families, and traumatized women since then while learning to integrate my life as a wife, mother, and Christian. Working with clients, courts, and schools is never boring, but God is good!
Recently, I have moved to a no insurance practice. My unique experience and qualifications, as well as my desire to serve my clients, not the insurance companies, has motivated me to redirect my energies from reimbursement to clients.
