My purpose in presenting this personal disclosure statement to you is to acquaint you with both my background and theoretical approach to the coaching process. I converted my Licensed Professional Counselor and board supervisor status in the State of Texas to inactive. This means I am no longer working as a licensed clincian, and am instead working as a professional coach. I am also a Certified Sexologist and certified Applied Clinicial Nutritionist.

I believe in a wellness perspective within the coaching process, rather than a medical model. If you need a diagnosis, I will refer you out to a trusted colleague as I cannot provide a diagnostic impression with an inactive license.
Many of the tools that we may explore in that process can include distress tolerance skills; mindfulness techniques; the exploration of feelings, cognitions, and behaviors; and expressive techniques such as journaling, art, and music.
If you believe I have acted unethically in any way when operating with an active license, you may report your complaint to:
Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors
Complaints Management and Investigative Section
P.O. Box 141369
Austin, Texas 78714-1369
or call 1-800-942-5540 to request the appropriate form or obtain more information.
Would you like to learn more about my services?
For the privacy of my clients, I manage my own schedule, therefore I am typically able to reply faster if you send me an email .
Email is the quickest way to connect with me! In order to maintain client privacy, I manage my own schedule which makes it difficult to field and return phone calls!
I will not see inquiries sent through social media direct messaging, please email!
