Oklahoma Licensed Professional Counselor #6517
Jody and her husband have chosen Bartlesville as their home base after a career of moving multiple places, multiple times: Texas, Colorado, Montana, Oklahoma, and Australia. Hobbies include hiking, reading, gardening, fishing, spending time outdoors, and planning the next adventure. Jody’s favorite times are those spent with family and friends, especially their 4 married adult children currently scattered across the U.S.
The journey thus far has taught Jody a couple of things: although life isn’t always fair, easy, or predictable, the hard stuff can lead to growth, resiliency, and renewed hope for the future. In order to facilitate the template for positive therapeutic outcomes, Jody helps the client move forward with a fresh perspective on life’s challenges. She creates a safe place of acceptance and respect, encouraging clients to work toward solutions incorporating identified strengths and resources. Jody primarily uses an integrative, hope-focused approach based upon the cognitive-behavioral treatment model. This provides the framework for constructing, and then accomplishing, desired goals for personal growth and change.
