Welcome to Resilient Pathways Therapy
I am the owner and primary therapist at Resilient Pathways Therapy.
I have been married to my best friend for 24 years. I am a mom of 2 college age sons and 1 daughter, who is in elementary school. I enjoy volunteering at my daughter's school and helping in her school library. Our family has 3 chihuahuas, who seem to think they are little people. My hobbies include reading, antique shopping, and watching Hallmark movies.
I co-facilitate a breast cancer survivor's group once a month in the Clear Lake area. I am also a Mental Health Crisis Volunteer for the American Red Cross for specific crisis situations that occur locally.
I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Science-Psychology and Early Childhood Education in 1995 at UHCL. I also received 160 continuing education hours in Chemical Dependency & Addictive Behaviors.
I graduated from the University of Houston-Clear Lake in 2003, with a Master of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I graduated with honors, received the Outstanding Student Award and membership in the Psi Chi Honors Society and Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities.
I am dual licensed as a licensed marriage and family therapist and licensed professional counselor. I am also a Prepare/Enrichment Facilitator.
I completed a 1 year internship at UTMB-Gavleston in the Family Medicine Department. I also completed 2 years post-graduate work at Memorial Hermann Hospital and Harris County Hospital District.
I have worked in the public school district with severe MR and Autistic students and their families, where I created a curriculum, provided family sessions, and trainings for staff.
I have worked in the non-profit sector with students at risk or already using drugs/alcohol, behavioral challenges, and family issues. I had the privilege to work closely with the City of La Porte and Congressman Ted Poe to bring community awareness to the effects of underage drinking.
My clinical experience has given me opportunities to work with individuals, couples, and provide group therapy. I enjoy working with highly motivated individuals, couples determined to work on their relationship, and survivor's of cancer and mesh.
I maintain my licenses through workshops, trainings, and yearly conferences.
I encourage you to call so that we can talk further and determine if we are a good match for one another.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Wellness & blessings,
