Prepared to help you live abundantly

Credentials

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor specializing in individual, couples and family therapy, and maintain a private practice in Lowell, AR. I received a specialization in Technology Assisted Counseling in September 2012.

With 20 years experience as a marriage and family therapist, and as a graduate of John Brown University specializing in Marriage and Family Therapy, I am currently serving as private practitioner at Abundant Living Counseling and Consulting working with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are faith based counseling, family of origin issues, affair recovery, divorce recovery, stepfamily issues, premarital counseling, codependency issues, abuse and trauma recovery, grief, depression and anxiety treated from a family systems perspective. I am a certified Amen Mental Health Professional, employing a variety of natural treatments for optimum brain health.

In addition to being a relationship therapist, I am an Adjunct Professor in the Harding University Graduate Counseling Program. I have served as a professor since 2007, and have also been a University Practicum and Internship Supervisor.  I have presented at a National Healthy Marriage Curricula conference in New Orleans, LA and to general audiences and churches in Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana speaking on the topics of Healthy Marriages and Relationships, child development and parenting.

I am an interactive, solution-focused, faith based therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide encouragement, support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems and complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.

My husband and I live in Northwest Arkansas, enjoy spending time with family, and participate in a variety of church, community and outdoor activities.
