About

I have been practicing for 19 years and continue to look forward to helping others find the proper treatment for their needs. I enjoy working with children, teens and adults. I understand that each of my patients have unique strengths. I am committed to providing genuine, caring and confidential care for professionals, families and children. I am a firm believer in change and hold an optimistic view in helping others. I often find that people have gone without treatment for various reasons but I am here to help them find the appropriate direction.
Serving the needs of families and children is an important aspect of my practice. It takes years of specialized training and practice to develop the proper evaluation and treatment of your child or teen. My training at UTMB at Galveston under one of the leading authorities in serving children with mood disorders is an important part of my foundation.
