As a licensed counselor for 22 years, I have had the privilege of working with a wide variety of clients and a broad range of issues. This real world experience has informed my philosophy more than my education or certifications. I believe that all people have the ability to find a sense of peace and well being through self-examination and new ways of looking at their lives and relationships. At times, all people have difficulty navigating through life's transitions or obstacles and can benefit from objective, outside help, in order to find new perspectives and solutions.

I enjoy working with individuals, families, teens and groups and have experience with all of these. I have advanced training in mediation, stress management, anger management and also self-hypnosis for relaxation and find that this additional training helps in individual therapy as well as group therapy.

I have recently relocated to the Fort Worth Texas area and I am enjoying my association with New Horizon Counseling Center. I am a native born Texan and I am happy to be back in Texas!
