I am a  Licensed Professional Counselor in both Arizona and North Carolina.  Additionally, I am a Nationally Certified Counselor and member of the International Center for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (ICCEFT.com).  I received my Masters of Counseling from Arizona State University’s accredited counseling program.  I graduated from the Kenan-Flagler Business School at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a business degree.  I completed my internship and continued with eight years of practice at an internationally renowned practice, Psychological Counseling Services (PCS), www.pcsearle.com, in Scottsdale, Arizona, where I provided weekly therapy and intensive therapy.  PCS is known for its intensive outpatient program for addiction, where I began my niche in helping couples navigate recovery and reconciliation.  I focused my professional training in couples and addiction work.  I am certified in Advanced Training in Problematic Sexual Behaviors (ATPSB) and am trained in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT).  I am a topic expert at GoodTherapy.org where I contribute articles about relationships and addiction.  

I have extensive experience in working with families going through the transition of separation and divorce.  For 8 years, I was appointed as a mental health expert by the Arizona Family Court to provide therapeutic services for families going through divorce.  I no longer take court appointments, however, I do provide therapy for couples, individuals and families that are dealing with separation or divorce-related issues. 

I live in Charlotte, NC with my husband of 10 years and my two daughters, ages 3 and 6.  When I’m not running around with my kids and spending time with my husband, I enjoy providing marriage advice through my blog, Marriage Sense at www.marriagesense.org.
