Couples, Trauma

and Sex Therapy

Direct and compassionate therapy to help you be a better you

Watching people grow up close is a unique honor.

I walk alongside brave and courageous individuals and couples as they strive to become better than they are, overcome what they feel overwhelmed by, become who they dare dream of becoming, and develop the strength to love well.

With a Doctor of Philosophy (PHD) and Masters degree in marriage and family therapy, I specialize in couples and sex therapy, trauma and depression in Houston, Texas with over 20 years experience in the field of mental health. A differentiation based therapist, I utilize the Sexual Crucible approach to therapy developed by Dr. David Schnarch. I am also a Certified Sex Therapist and a Certified Spiritual Director. 

I approach my clients with a unique combination of compassion and honesty. My therapeutic approach is based on a growth model within a healing relational framework. Hence by empowering and equipping clients, previously hopeless situations now represent new opportunities for growth.

Training the next generation of therapists

Watching therapists grow is also a great honor. My role as the founder and clinical director of Fuller Life Family Therapy Institute, allows me to train the next generation of therapists. Fuller Life is a non-profit counseling training organization providing accessible and affordable therapy to the community and an opportunity for training and mentoring developing marriage and family therapists.

Being an adjunct professor at the Houston Graduate School of Theology for the masters and doctorate program in counseling provides another avenue to train future therapists. I serve as the sexuality specialization director for the doctorate in professional counseling. 

For fun…

Personally, I’m a lifelong Texan, have been married for over 24 years and have two children. My hobbies include reading, doing yoga, triathlons, sewing, spending time with my children and dating my husband. I also greatly enjoy speaking for various churches, organizations and retreats.  Additionally, I serve on the Board of Directors at the Austin Graduate School of Theology.  My husband and I were honored be be named Distinguished Alumni for 2015 by our alma matter, Abilene Christian University.

May you be well,
