I have committed my professional career to serving the psychological, social and emotional needs of my clients. As a licensed psychologist, my clinical practice focuses on the holistic treatment of relationships, including individual and couples therapy, family conflict, trauma and addiction.
I earned a Bachelor of Arts in psychology from Purdue University, a Master of Arts in psychology from Notre Dame University, and a Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Texas, Austin. My postdoctoral education includes clinical training in family systems therapy and more postdoctoral training in trauma and addiction provided by Pia Mellody and Patrick Carnes. I also hold a national certification in Sex Addiction Therapy (CSAT), Multiple Addiction Therapy (CMAT), and am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). I’ve shared my passion and expertise on a regular basis through The Meadows Lecture Series, The Dallas Free Lecture Series, as well as speaking at universities, conferences, and schools.
