About

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who offers individuals, adults, geriatric populations in a general private practice setting in Texas. My practice offers a place where you can feel heard in a supportive, comfortable, and non-judgmental environment. I focus on adult care including women’s issues, career/educational issues, interpersonal communication, self-esteem, anger management, stress management, relationship issues, grief and loss, depression, and anxiety. I like to do therapy in an “eclectic” manner, drawing on cognitive-behavioral, narrative, spirituality, solution-focused, and others.
I find the mind-body connection to be especially fascinating and am passionate about educating others on how Adverse Childhood Experiences impact physical and emotional well-being later in life. Formal training in both child and adult trauma models helps me address stress, emotional stability, and physical health concerns.
Send me an email for a prompt response. Choosing a therapist is an important decision, I welcome the opportunity to speak with you over the phone for a free 15 minutes consultation. As a therapist, my primary goal is to create a safe, supportive, non-judgmental space in which you can openly share, explore and achieve greater self-awareness.
