welcome

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and the owner of Willow Creek Counseling, PLLC in Keller, Texas.  I work with children, teenagers, adults, and couples who need guidance and coping strategies to help through difficult life situations. 

My Story

Before starting my own practice, I worked with with Heritage Counseling Associates helping clients achieve the best version of themselves by providing therapeutic experiences.

I received a Master's degree in Counseling from LeTourneau University where I graduated Summa cum laude.  While training to become a mental health counselor, I worked as a High School Intervention Counselor Intern working with teenagers who struggled with anxiety, depression, bullying, abuse, grief, addiction, identity issues, and much more.  

I am the proud mom of two teenagers.  My daughter is in high school and my son is attending the University of Arkansas.  WOO PIG SOOIE!!!  We have a dog name Gatsby who definitely is The Great Gatsby.  Before entering the world of counseling, I began my career as a high school English teacher.  I am a cancer survivor, and that experience gave me the chance at a new view on how precious joy and fulfillment in life truly is. Working with others has always been my passion, and I feel fortunate to do that every day.

In addition to receiving a Master's Degree in Counseling, I am a
