Is there any research-based work you’ve done that you found particularly exciting, and how has that informed your practice today?

In 2008, I was privileged to conduct research with genocide survivors in the country of Rwanda. The purpose of the research was to determine whether using self acupressure or “tapping,” reduced the symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder in this population. This has resulted in the use of this technique with those suffering from trauma in my practice in the US, as well as provided a much deeper understanding of the challenges individuals with trauma face.

What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

I have 30+ years of experience as a Licensed Professional Counselor and hold licenses in the states of Alabama, Kansas, Texas and California. I am trained as a Clinical Psychologist and have completed all of the coursework and internships for a PhD in Clinical and Health Psychology. I have three children all in their 20’s. My two daughters are therapists as well, while my youngest, a son, is studying Biochemistry and Physics in Southern California. I am committed to making a difference in the lives of my clients and strive to offer the highest possible care and treatment for each one. Although I have been in the field for many years, I continue to learn and grow to be the best therapist I can be. I am willing to sit with my clients as they work through profound pain as well as celebrate their victories with them. I am warm and personable and I do not take myself too seriously. I am passionate about my work and continue to enjoy helping others on their journeys to a life worth living.

What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

Respect, trust and empathy are critical components of the therapeutic relationship. No matter what issue a client may bring to therapy, they may be assured that I will respect them and support them in their struggle to wholeness and resolution. Additionally, I strive to provide a safe space for an individual to process difficult and painful emotions and experiences. It is important to me that my clients know that I feel their pain with them and yet I am able to still offer objectivity to help them move beyond the pain to genuine healing.

Work History

I began my counseling career in 1989 at Charter Hospital of Mobile, a private psychiatric hospital, managing the Intake/Crisis Office. One of my favorite activities during my time at Charter was hosting a weekly, live call-in radio talk show. It was during my second year at Charter that I founded a private practice that ultimately grew to nine therapists and two offices in southern Alabama. I led this practice for 17 years and during this time, I embarked on a PhD in Clinical Psychology at Walden University. As a part of this program, I completed an Internship at Larned State Hospital where I was the Unit Psychologist for the Competency to Stand Trial Unit. In 2008, I was offered an opportunity to live and work in Australia. I left my practice and made the move to Brisbane, Queensland where I worked for Disability Services Queensland writing behavior plans for intellectually disadvantaged adults with challenging behaviors. After a year down under, I returned to the US and settled in Dallas, Texas and was there for 10 years. I established a private practice there and for the last 6 ½ years there I conducted psychiatric evaluations in the emergency room for Texas Health Resources. In 2019, I moved to California and eventually settled in the East Bay of San Francisco where I work remotely in private practice. I continue my work in East Africa and have a particular interest in assisting a Village Health Team in westen Uganda. In addition to providing therapy to clients in the states of California, Texas, Kansa, and Alabama, I offer telehealth to clients in Rwanda and the Ukraine.
