Do you get a lump in your throat when you think about going to see a therapist, yet you treasure the idea of really being known and having someone to walk beside you through a difficult time? If you’re conflicted about seeking help, I am a good choice.

One of my professional strengths is helping you feel comfortable in a relationship that involves intimate conversation. I am certified in sex therapy by the American Board of Christian Sex Therapists. I am the second therapist in Arkansas to receive this certification, and one of only 200 in the United States.

I am creative, fun loving and an out-of- the-box thinker. My genuineness and years of experience restoring and enhancing relationships, in a variety of settings, can be a treasure chest for you. Reframing situations so you think about your issues in a new way, is a passion of mine. Go ahead, take the first step, and give me a call, so new richness in the quality of your life can be discovered.
