I have been working with families/children for over 32 years. During this time, I’ve conducted research on family issues such as non-traditional family structure, teenage parenting and academic competence. Also during this time, I have worked in Therapeutic Foster care and have taught courses in Parenting and LifeSpan Development at Oklahoma State University. All families have strengths. It is important to recognize these strengths and build on them for change and improved family functioning. Let me help you find the strength to change and become empowered for you and your family.
Building self-esteem and competence are important to one’s success and accomplishment. It is easier to change when someone feels that they can and recognizes its importance. With my training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Focused – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Family Systems Therapy, I am an advocate for helping you produce different outcomes.
If you are stressed or overwhelmed, this can be a start of a more serious issue. It is always best to talk with a professional that may help you to process your issues both past and present. Don’t try to figure this out alone. I can help!
