As a student intern I do not charge for my services
My philosophy of therapy is holistic, meaning that I believe that people are made up of many parts – body, soul (mind, emotions, will) and spirit. How those parts interact internally and externally makes us who we are. I am a Christian and I believe God has created us to be in a relationship with him and with other people. My approach to therapy is from a systemic perspective. I believe that people work in relational systems and each person in a relationship is important to the health of the whole. When relationships become out of balance, it is a result of many different factors or patterns, which can be examined in the therapy sessions. I place a strong emphasis on healthy communication, problem solving and emotional connections.
I have been an attorney for 20+ years. While I have enjoyed that career, I am excited to get back to my first passion and calling, counseling. I am currently attending Oklahoma Baptist University pursuing a Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy. I will finish that program in 2019 and begin the process of obtaining licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist. I am blessed to have the opportunity to complete my intern hours as New Path 12:2.
