Supervised by Tricia Gordon, MA, LPC-S
A Dallas native, I hold a BA from Baylor University and a MA in Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary. I began my education in counseling after returning from a few years on the international mission-field and seeing the great need for trained professionals to walk alongside hurting and marginalized people around the world. God led me on an unexpected journey through multiple settings from a crisis-pregnancy center to private practice and now to Magnolia Counseling Group.
Using evidence-based techniques and theories, I work with clients to examine damaging core beliefs and take trauma-informed, goal-oriented steps toward freedom. Informed by my faith in Christ as well as my education and training, I work from a model that integrates psychological evidence and Biblical truth. I believe that a crucial part of an effective therapeutic experience is the positive alliance between therapist and client. I am passionate about simply providing space and tools for my clients to find transformation.
I have experience working with anxiety, depression, addiction, crisis pregnancy, identity and relationship issues, grief and loss, parenting struggles, family and marital conflict, betrayal trauma, and more. I particularly love working with young adults in transitional and often-challenging seasons of life such as new marriages, young parenthood, and career exploration. I hold my clients in high regard and truly consider it one of the greatest honors of my life to be doing this work with each one of them.
I am a certified facilitator of the Prepare / Enrich marriage curriculum, and I have completed Level 1 of the Gottman Method for marriage counseling.
Outside of the counseling office, I love to bake bread and chocolate chip cookies, read great books, and most of all, spend time with my husband and three children.
