My name is DrP and I run the Good Help Clinic. I am a psychologist, army veteran, and an adjunct professor with the Texas A&M HSC College of Medicine. My mission is to consistently provide high quality psychological services to people with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and anger management problems. I have special training in health psychology and lots of experience helping people change behaviors that hurt their health. I am a licensed boxing and martial arts coach. I help athletes improve performance. I also do psychological assessment and pre-bariatric surgery psychological evaluations.
I practice cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and have recieved formal supervised training in this approach. People who work with me get better because I use evidence-based methods that have been shown to be effective, and because I work very hard to develop and maintain my skills as a therapist.
I have formal training in the use of hypnosis which I combine with CBT to help clients modify thinking and free themselves from undesired states of hopelessness, fear,and anger. My clients leave with tools they can use to effectively manage their lives. I work hard to provide Good Help.
