I am a psychotherapist skilled and experienced in individual, couples, family, and group psychotherapy.
Educational Background: I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology from Texas A&M University, and a Master of Science in Social Work degree from The University of Texas at Austin. I also have post-graduate training from the Colorado School for Family Therapy, EMDR International, and Imago Relationships International.

My clinical experience and training include work in private practice, residential mental health, psychiatric sub-acute inpatient care, chemical dependency treatment centers, insurance preventative mental health care, and school-based counseling. I specialize in working with people undergoing life transitions such as changing careers, entering/leaving educational systems, becoming a parent, entering/leaving a committed relationship, death of a loved one, coming out as a person in the LGBTQ community, dealing with chronic illness.
I also specialize in working with people who have recently undergone varying degrees of trauma. In addition, I have experience and expertise in working with people struggling with substance abuse, process addictions, and issues related to suicide.

My Approach to Psychotherapy: I bring compassion, thoughtfulness, and good humor into work with clients. My philosophy is to provide skilled, strength-based interactions and build systems of care to meet the special needs of clients in an understanding, curious, engaging, open-minded, and confidential manner. My goal is to enhance recovery and healing using the most thorough and effective methods possible.
My clinical style is to draw from diverse and effective theoretical methods such as person-centered, psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy, self-psychology, and solution-focused therapy in order to provide an appropriate intervention for every client.
Creating a Therapeutic Environment: Psychotherapy should provide you with a safe, comfortable environment to discuss the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are most distressing to you, as well as to talk about your dreams, successes, and desires. For each individual, unique aspects are needed to create such an environment; I am attentive and considerate of what you need. I value your input and feedback regarding what is working and what isn’t working in our collaboration. Creating a safe “space” and having open communication is imperative to helping you achieve your goals in therapy.
The goal of psychotherapy is for you to be able to live a life that is more whole and rewarding. I am firm in my belief that enduring change is possible and that it takes time, energy, and commitment. My psychotherapy practice is devoted to helping clients create the time and space to explore themselves in order to heal old wounds and create the lasting transformation they want in their relationships and their lives.
