Ann and her husband, Stephen, married in 1997. They have two sons, Caleb and Jonah, and a daughter, Hayden. They are members of a local evangelical church where they serve in the marriage ministry.
Ann applies a combination of cognitive-behavioral and rational-emotive techniques to therapy. She believes that understanding and knowing the truth about God and of who we are before Him can help us change self-defeating beliefs and behaviors. These changes allow us to relate to God, others and ourselves in a healthy and loving way. She explores the impact of family of origin issues in order to help us understand and change what we believe so that we can lead more healthy lives.
Ann began her career at the Counseling Center at Southern Methodist University. She worked at the The Minirth Clinic and as a therapist with The Minirth Christian Program at Green Oaks Psychiatric Hospital for four years. She then moved to Bent Tree Counseling Center where she worked until joining Nikao.
