Both my education and clinical experience have been centered around working with individuals, couples, and families.  During my clinical internship at the Center on Family Living in Lenexa, Kansas, I worked with issues regarding partner relational problems, depression, anxiety, bereavement, learning disorders, ADHD, sexual issues, phase of life issues, sexual abuse, substance abuse, domestic violence, identity problems, occupational problems, parent-child relational problems, and more.  
Prior to attending graduate school, I completed an internship at Brittany Park Counseling Services in Tulsa, Oklahoma which provides counseling services for a wide-range of issues.  During this internship, I was also able to intern for Brookhaven behavioral and neurological health clinic in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  Brookhaven Hospital assists individuals who are struggling with behavioral health issues, chemical dependency, eating disorders, brain injuries, and neurologic disorders.

I received my Master of Science in Family Therapy from Friends University following my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Oklahoma State University with a minor in English.  I received additional training to be designated as a Prepare/Enrich Facilitator & Director.  I have completed Level 2 training in EMDR trauma therapy.   I am a Level I Gottman trained therapist.  I also maintain membership in the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT), Kansas Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (KAMFT) , Delta Kappa (Beta Chapter) International Marriage and Family Therapy Honor Society, and Psi Chi National Psychology Honor Society.  Continuing education is extremely important to me so I have also attended conferences and additional training regarding:

·         Addressing Trauma Needs with Grievers

·         Understanding and Treating Self-Inflicted Violence

·         Women & Men’s Sexuality

·         Intimacy in Couples Relationships
