Feeling overwhelmed? Want to make changes but not sure where to start? Do things feel out of control? Finding a good fit with a therapist can play a vital role in getting more of what you want in life. I see myself as someone who guides and facilitates a committed, compassionate and confidential space where we can clarify what is most important to you, and discover the blocks that get in the way of having the life that you want. I am accepting child custody clients for supervised visitation and provide parenting coordinator services.

I work with individuals and couples, teens and adults. I provide a safe, non-judgmental environment, which helps you get to the root of the difficulties that are interfering with love, work, and play - the basic ingredients of a satisfying life.

I have been doing therapy for over 8 years. I have been working at River Oaks Hospital and maintaining a private practice. I accept many insurance plans: Medicaid, Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Optum and United Healthcare. I have a very reasonable sliding fee if you don't have insurance.
