One Sentence Treatment Philosophy

Life is challenging, and hope is found in trusting God with our struggles, relationships, and growth, as we learn how to manage these wisely.

Personal Statement of Faith

I was raised Catholic, and then Jesus saved me through understanding the gospel and being discipled in Campus Crusade for Christ. Dallas Theological Seminary taught me the Bible through the MABS, then study with Drs. Minirth and Meyer, Christian psychiatrists, directed me to Texas Woman’s University for the MS in Marriage and Family Therapy. God freed me from an eating disorder, so I am happy to help others heal from restricting, compulsive overeating, excessive exercise and fasting, and bulimia. I pray over my office each day and ask the Lord to bring those He wants to love and heal through me!
