Me and my Therapy Dog, Maggie Lou
I obtained my PhD from California Southern University in Counseling Psychology and a Master's degree in Social Work from of the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. My undergraduate degree is from Louisiana State University. Geaux Tigers!!!
I work in Bishop on Mondays and Thursdays at my private practice. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, I provide Mental Health Services to the men and women in uniform at the USMC Mountain Warfare Training Center in Bridgeport, Ca.
I believe in the healing power of homemade chicken soup, spending time with animals, and finding someone to help when you are stuck. When I can help someone live a more meaningful life, my life is more meaningful. I have been through my own share of challenges in life and although they aren't much fun, I have learned valuable lessons from them. Mostly, we learn ways of of understanding our selves and develop new perspectives about our feelings and thoughts, We grow through challenges and although we will find our way, it's nice to have a have a hand to hold in the dark.
This is Jackie, she is my therapy dog at home.
