have been practicing clinical counseling since 1998, which has included psychiatric residential work, service as a staff counselor for a local church, and a private practice since 2002.   I enjoy working with adults, couples, adolescents and families.  I have extensive experience in the treatment of depression, anxiety, stress, and bereavement.  I have also worked with many couples and families to address marriage and relationship issues.

Growth and change in counseling sometimes involves very practical adjustments in the way challenges are approached.  At other times, the process can be very mysterious as deep anxieties and depression are addressed. Because I also believe that spirituality is an important part of life and growth, I am comfortable exploring with clients how their particular faith beliefs inform their unique process of change.I am married to Scott Cunningham, a professor of Economics at Baylor University. We have 3 beautiful children — Miles, Willow, and Ren.

I welcome the opportunity to work with you, and I’m glad to offer a 30-minute consultation to explore if I might be the right counselor for you.

My “day job” is with the Central Texas Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center, primarily working with vets suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This setting has allowed me to develop my skills in treating anxiety and depression issues.

My approach is rooted in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) methods that have scientific support for their effectiveness.  CBT is interactive and collaborative.  If appropriate, I may invite you to include your partner or family members in your care.  CBT is less focused on clients’ early history or remote past and focuses more on current thinking and behavior.  However, we may address aspects of your history that continue to “show up” as you try to move forward with your life. We may also use an innovative form of CBT, called Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT).  ACT is a scientifically-based therapy that uses mind/body techniques, metaphors, and creative exercises to promote a fundamental shift in how you experience troublesome thoughts, feelings, and memories.  Using ACT, we can teach you to recognize and end your struggle with uncontrollable thoughts and feelings.  ACT will also help you clarify the values that are most important to you and to take action in these valued areas of your life.

I do not treat disorders; I treat whole individuals.  I frequently work with people who have experienced difficult life situations such as abuse, death of a close loved one, marital or relationship dissatisfaction, break-ups, or divorce. My primary role is to help clients identify and remove themselves from patterns that keep them stuck and from living as fully as they wish.  Many of us can identify our struggles by name: anxiety, depression, addiction, or some other name.  Just as important, however, is to know what we are seeking.  This may include greater closeness and intimacy with others, living a richer and more fulfilling life, or to move toward truth, authentic purpose, and meaning.

I am a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) who has worked with clients in a residential unit for serious mental illness (Central Texas Veterans Health Care System) and with victims of domestic violence (Family Abuse Center, Waco). I currently offer counseling to individuals, couples and families as part of the Waco Partnership for Psychological and Spiritual Care (WPPSC). I also provide services at Brookhaven Youth Ranch.

After earning a Master’s degree in Political Science and staying home with my children for a number of years, I decided to respond to a lifelong conviction to serve others through counseling. I went back to school and earned a Master’s degree in Social Work and I am now working under supervision to earn credits toward a clinical license.  I am privileged to work with a team of experienced therapists who continually push me to grow as a professional.

In my counseling, I am particularly sensitive to the interplay among religion, spirituality, mental health, and self-understanding, and I value spirituality as integral to the healing process for many people.  I am committed to helping you find the strengths that lie within you and your relationships as well as showing you some new tools for change.  I look forward to helping you bring more honesty and love to your relationships while at the same time you learn to respect and love yourself and to “stand on your own sacred ground”* (relate to others from your authentic self).  

Thanks to the resources of WPPSC, I am able offer a sliding scale for counseling services. You are welcome to contact me via email (practiselfcompassion@gmail.com) to discuss fees and available appointment times.
