About

My practice is primarily with adults, adolescents and families, who are struggling with stress, depression, anxiety, past trauma and life challenges. Life at times can be hard, and relationships take a lot of work. My mission is to empower my clients to find their inner strengths to lead a happier, more fulfilled life. I provide a relaxed, comfortable environment for my clients to share those things in life they would like to change. I am trained to offer you EMDR Therapy® for PTSD. I use a directive counseling approach, providing homework and guidance, with a multimodal approach to therapy.
In my time as a clinician I have worked with a number of clients who have suffered different traumatic events. I strongly believe that trauma treatment mobilizes, empowers, and restores functioning to individuals. I work with people on a one-to-one basis (individual counseling), and I offer group counseling as well.
I am a Texas State Board of Social Worker Examiners approved Clinical Supervisor. I offer supervision to MSW and LMSW supervisees who are seeking licensure to become an LMSW or LCSW. Supervision is offered to individuals and groups.

More about this group

Group Supervision

I offer individual and group supervision. This time is utilized to conceptualize cases, discuss clinical experiences, and develop treatment plans, to name a few tasks. Group supervision allows you to learn from others while sharing your personal experiences and perspective. Supervision is face to face, via teleconferencing, and telephonic meeting. In accordance with Texas State Board requirements supervisees with an approved plan for full-time work must participate in no less than four (4) hours of supervision each month AND no fewer than two (2) supervisory session each month. I require a minimum of two persons to be supervised by me to conduct group supervision.
