My counseling career began after I decided to go back to school as a non-traditional student. I had a busy family with children, who were in grade and middle school at the time.
My coursework, and professors led me to a Masters program in Counseling at Oklahoma State University. I interned with a local community mental health organization; afterwards, working in Specialized Outpatient Services, which gave me the opportunity to counsel a wide range of adults and couples, from those struggling with everyday life, addiction, and mental health support.
Eventually, my interests in working with clients and families of those struggling with addiction led me to a unique residential program, for mother’s and their children, in which the focus was on keeping families intact. As a women’s counselor, I counseled mothers and pregnant women struggling with addiction, eventually transitioning from a women’s counselor to a clinical supervisor and a clinical director.
Recently, my husband and I have found ourselves in an awkward new stage of empty nesting as the last two of our five children have gone off to college. And, when I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends.
I typically use Cognitive Behavior Therapy techniques to help clients identify barriers to their own progress. Additionally, I incorporate many Mindfulness techniques including meditation to focus on relaxation, concentration, and helping to calm racing/disturbing thoughts. We deserve better sleep.
I have been working as a counselor for 13 years in a variety of areas of focus. I completed my BA in Sociology from The University of Notre Dame in 2006 followed by a MS in Counseling from Oklahoma State University in 2010. While still at OSU, I worked at Tulsa Center of Behavioral Health. There, I first began my work with clients diagnosed with serious mental illnesses (SMI). I next worked with children and families in Therapeutic Foster Care. I continued work with clients with SMIs like schizophrenia, major depression, and bipolar while working in a community mental health agency and then alongside Psychiatrists at Tulsa County Jail. After the jail, I returned to working in a community setting. At each setting, I gained additional experience working with clients with a history of childhood traumas.
