I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Registered Play Therapist based in Plano, Texas. My professional experience includes working with at risk youth at CITY House, and most recently private practice with Fletcher and Associates. Utilizing a solution focused approach my specialties include play therapy, adolescents, special needs, adults, as well as family therapy.
In my role as a wife of a corporate executive, mother of a blended family of four children, one with special needs, I have gained a unique and personal understanding of the complexities of personal dynamics. I am very passionate about helping my clients overcome obstacles and reach their full potential.
I was born and raised in South Africa and have worked and studied in South Africa, England and the USA. After completing my undergraduate degree at the University of Texas, Dallas, I completed my Masters degree in Counseling at Amberton University. With my personal and professional experiences on three continents I feel I am able to share a richness of cross-cultural diversity, international, corporate and counseling experience with my clients.
Christian Counseling is available to those who desire it. As a Christian I hold personal beliefs in Biblical principles, promises, and the power of faith and prayer however I am very sensitive to my client’s positions regarding their own personal beliefs.
I am a current member of both the American Counseling Association and The Association for Play therapy.
On a more personal level, I am an active church member. I believe in being an active community member and enjoy making a difference in the lives of children and adults with disabilities in the Plano community. I have been an active CASA volunteer for more than 8 years, as well as one of the founding members of My Possibilities. My Possibilities is a continuing education adult day program for adults with special needs in Collin County. For more information about My Possibilities please go to www.mypossibilities.org
