About Janice

I am a psychologist who specializes in helping individuals and couples heal from infidelity and sex addiction. I know that the pain my clients bring to me is profound, so I put a great deal of time, effort and investment in the training I believe necessary for healing.  I am the first Certified Sex Addiction Therapist and CSAT supervisor in McKinney, first certified Sexual Recovery Therapist in Texas, first professional to be certified as a Partner Recovery Therapist as well as the first to be certified as an Intimacy Anorexia Therapist, and first Somatic Experiencing Practitioner  in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area. I am the founder and clinical director of McKinney Counseling & Recovery and a founding member and vice-president of the nonprofit Association for Partners of Sex Addicts Trauma Specialists, one of the original Certified Clinical Partner Specialist recipients, and train and supervise other professionals seeking certification in use of the Multidimentional Partner Trauma Model. I use this trauma model to help recovering addicts and partners restore trust in relationships suffering from betrayal. I have also trained with Dr. Brene Brown and have been a Certified Daring Way Facilitator since 2016.

Personal Background

I grew up in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. From that background, I bring a down-to-earth, practical approach to my therapy and a deep respect for the importance of relationships and family. I have lived in McKinney for over 20 years. My husband and I raised our family here and hope to spend many years engaging in the joy of my life — being a grandmother.

I’ve gone through my fair share of pain in life and know what it takes to move beyond it. If you want to change your life, and you are ready to do what it takes to heal, I will ask a lot of you. But I’ll never take away your choice about if and when to make those changes. We’ll share both laughter and tears. And I won’t ask you to do something I haven’t done myself. I know how scary it can be to take those steps toward rebuilding your life — and I know how empowering healing can feel.

Professional Background

I am a psychologist with over 25 years experience in working with children, adolescents and adults. I counsel individuals, couples and families, helping them to restore hope, find solutions and transform their lives. I have a background in brief therapy and strength-based approaches, which I use to help my clients focus on realistic action plans to deal with problems, improve their relationships, and heal from relationship and life difficulties.

My specialty is working with relationship trauma and intimacy disorders, such as marital betrayal, love addiction or love avoidance, intimacy anorexia, codependency, unresolved family of origin issues, and PTSD. I work with individuals to help them strengthen their personal boundaries and improve their self-esteem, as well as assist couples to rebuild trust and renew commitment after their relationships have been challenged by infidelity. I am the first Certified Sex Addiction Therapist and first Certified Clinical Partner Specialist in McKinney. I support recovering addicts and spouses/partners, couples, and families to heal from the impact of internet pornography and sexual addiction. Additionally, I provide group therapy to help spouses and partners empower themselves and heal from the wound of betrayal.

My professional foundation was in marriage and family therapy, and included specific training in the unique psychological needs of women. However, as a psychologist in the Dallas Veterans Administration I also gained in depth experience counseling men, particularly those dealing with depression, PTSD, and addiction.

I have extensive experience working with trauma issues, from the little hurts and rejections we go through every day that chips away at our spirit to childhood abuse and neglect to combat-related Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. I utilize Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and Somatic Experiencing® for treating trauma and anxiety.

Philosophy of Therapy

I believe that my clients are the experts on their own lives and have the right to determine the course of their own therapy. You can improve your life and feel better about yourself without a lengthy commitment to therapy. For clients whose goal is to focus on specific, time-limited objectives, I use my background in brief therapies and solution-focused treatment to encourage an action oriented approach to change.

For clients looking for a deeper level of change or recovering from traumatic life events, addiction, betrayal, infidelity or an intimacy disorder, our journey together may be longer. Our task becomes one of transforming suffering into meaning, empowering, and transforming your lives.

I have been blessed with the opportunity to be trained in a variety of theoretical perspectives and use a combination of these to meet the unique needs of each client. This includes solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral, experiential and various family systems therapies. I use a flexible approach that may include the practice of EMDR for more rapid change.
