Choosing a counselor for yourself or a family member can be a challenge. I hope you will find information here that will help you make an educated decision about counseling in general and whether the type of counseling I provide to my clients would be a good fit for you. Almost any question should be addressed on this website. Please come in and look around!
My current email address is [email protected]. Please type "New Client Question" in the subject line or call me at 817-441-9973.
PLEASE NOTE: If you do not hear back from me via email or phone, it means I did not get your message [went to spam] or I was unable to understand your phone number on your voice mail so please call the office again.
Bad Weather Policy: I typically follow Aledo/Weatherford ISD's lead for closing the office. If you have questions, please text me at the number above.
I am taking a very limited number of new patients at this time to make sure that I have adequate openings for my existing patients. You may be placed on a waiting list for a new patient appointment.
CORONA-VIRUS NOTICE UPDATE: As of June 22, I plan to be back in the office seeing clients in person when necessary. I will be offering telehealth sessions to all others.
If you have had any of these symptoms or have been around someone who has had these symptoms in the 14 days prior to your appointment, please contact me and schedule a video session. If you are not practicing social distancing or wearing masks in public, please understand that your sessions will be online for the foreseeable future.
Fever or chills New confusion
Cough Inability to stay awake

For in-person appointments, please wear a mask and follow social distancing guidelines. Your temperature may be taken upon arrival.
To use Thera-Link
1. I will need to add you as a client and will need your email address asap.
2.YOU MUST USE FIREFOX OR GOOGLE CHROME.
3. Set up your account as soon as you get the email.
4. I will schedule your appointment.
5. Before your appointment, log in, join the session.
6. I will see that you are in the "waiting room" and connect with you at your scheduled time.
If you are waiting longer than 5 minutes after the top of the hour in the waiting room, it is usually because of a glitch with Thera-link. Sign out, close your tab, make sure you are using the browsers mentioned above and sign back in. Also, text me and let me know what is going on. I will continue to run payment through cards on file. If you wish to use a different method/card, please let me know at the beginning of your session. I will also have my phone with me [817-441-9973] if we have issues during your session.
EMDR patients please contact me individually for further information.
I do not intend for teletherapy to be a permanent feature of my practice - this is only a temporary consideration in light of the uncertainty regarding Coronavirus.
