"If you are not fulfilled in life, change is possible! I believe that anything is possible if you are willing to face your giants & pursue your dreams. Dreams come in all shapes and sizes. Some dream of a peaceful life, freedom from addiction, a happy marriage, restored relationships, job success or perhaps freedom from a destructive/dysfunctional lifestyle. My role as your therapist is to help you clear the confusion, address the inner conflicts that has held you back and chart the course for your future. You are in-charge of you. I will help you discover YOU!

I specialize in Christian Counseling, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. I am diverse in my experience which includes, Suicide, Terminal Illness, Addiction/Codependency & Childhood Trauma. I spent fourteen years helping men and women achieve their weight-loss goals as a nutritionist and continue to offer nutritional counseling.

I am a biblical scholar and have spent the past 20 years studying the Bible and biblical history. I am a licensed minister, speaker and published author. I currently service as Women's Ministry Pastor at my local church. I volunteer at Juvenile Hall teaching bible studies to the girls.


When we experience trauma or severe life stressors, it is not uncommon for our lives to unravel.  My great passion is bringing healing to people and helping them to overcome challenging life events.  Challenging life events can include: transition and recovery following the end of a relationship or marriage, loss, trauma, relocation, abuse, addiction, and addressing the myriad of issues which affect one's self-esteem, self-image, and self-confidence.

I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy.  I have tremendous faith in the human ability to be resilient and my role as a therapist is to help you to connect with your inner strength and overcome the challenges you may be facing


I have been a licensed clinical social worker since 1995 and a drug and alcohol counselor since 2004.  I am so excited to have a private practice office in Visalia now.  My private practice in Fresno has typically been rather small while I work fulltime in an agency setting.  Now that Kathy Looper and Regan Collins are on board here in Visalia, we can all work together to help others!

I am a mother of three young children, two cats, and one little dog.  My fulltime job is as a Manager at the VA Hospital in Fresno.   My clinical experiences, over the years, have included treating women with addiction issues just coming out of prison, doing psychiatric assessments in a locked inpatient setting, working with families in a Wraparound program, working at a domestic violence shelter and counseling teen girls in a residential treatment setting.  Teaching college classes in addiction is also one of my favorite all time jobs!  

Things I love & enjoy include reading, walking, traveling, baking, antiquing, and bike riding with my kids.  I am looking forward to meeting you.  Good luck in your self-care adventure.   I can be reached by text at (559)930-9327 and emailed at cclcsw@sbcglobal.net.
