I have a bachelor's degree in Health Sciences from Southwestern Oklahoma State. I furthered my studies and graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 2015 with a Master's degree in Human Relations with a Counseling Emphasis. I am also a Certified Autism Specialist.
I have a special passion for working with individuals and family's of those on the high functioning end of the Autism Spectrum/Asperger's Syndrome. I use a whole family approach by educating all in the household about Autism. My personal experience with ASD helps me to really understand what individuals and the family may be experiencing. I can provide help with social skills, coping skills, sensory issues, triggers, and IEP/504 plans.
I use mainly person centered therapy which views people as capable of realizing their own potential, having the ability to resolve their own difficulties, possessing the ability to change their own lives in positive ways, with the therapist is the guide.
