I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Registered Play Therapist, Certified Humanistic Sand Tray Therapist, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, and Certified Trauma Specialist in Sex Trafficking. I am also a Board Certified Telemental Health Provider and a certified Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Provider. I received my Masters in Education from Tarleton State University with a specialization in Counseling. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Stephen F. Austin State University with a Bachelor’s of Science with a double major in Psychology and Child Development and Family Living. I have presented at two state conferences and I frequently offer continuing education training to mental health and educational professionals. I am experienced in play therapy, sand tray therapy, trauma work, and working with victims of sexual abuse.
I worked as an elementary school counselor for 7 years and as an elementary teacher for 5. In addition to counseling, I am also a Certified Dog Trainer and teach for Animal Behavior College where I graduated with honors. I live in Springtown with my husband and a menagerie of pets. When I am not learning more about counseling, I enjoy baking, reading, riding horses, collecting miniatures for sand tray, and game nights with family.
