I have been drawn to the work of Dr. John Gottman since early on in my professional career and have earned the distinction of Certified Gottman Therapist. I am a Master Trainer and Consultant for The Gottman Institute and am thrilled to be bringing this method into my practice.
I am a compassionate and caring psychotherapist who is dedicated to helping individuals create positive changes in their lives. Through collaboration, I walk with my clients on the path of new skill development and emotional healing. I believe that each person has unique strengths and values that need to be supported and developed to foster lifelong health and happiness.
From a young age I was drawn to working with individuals to help them develop a sense of empowerment. Pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Women’s Studies and a Masters of Social Work from the University of Utah, I began my career as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Before private practice, I directed a homeless shelter in the Washington D.C. area and worked with domestic violence and sexual assault survivors in various settings.
A successful private practice in Salt Lake City, Utah set the stage for my current work. After moving to Texas I worked at Family Time Crisis and Counseling Center and became a Social Work Supervisor for interns. In 2007, Mary Beth George and I teamed up to create what is now known as Couples Counseling and Psychotherapy Associates, a thriving practice that serves Kingwood and surrounding communities.
My extensive experience, allows me to work with a wide range of client issues. Valuing and supporting diversity, I provide a welcoming environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender clients. I am passionate about using Gottman Method™ Couples Counseling to help couples improve their relationship. My business partner and I offer the Art & SCIENCE of Love Couples Weekend Workshop and Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 Gottman Method Couples Therapy training for clinicians.
