Greetings! I'm a dedicated professional specializing in comprehensive psychological evaluations for adolescents and their families facing challenging behavioral concerns. In navigating the complexities of adolescence, I focus on uncovering underlying factors contributing to behaviors often mistaken as typical. For parents, educators, and support networks, psychological evaluations provide invaluable insights! My approach emphasizes fostering connections with teens and families, offering a tailored strategy to address challenges that may not have found resolution elsewhere.
My ideal client is a teenager dealing with significant challenges such as suicidal thoughts, self-harm tendencies, aggression, or interpersonal difficulties. I also welcome adult individuals navigating relationships, parenting, or work-related stress and couples facing marital distress.
With 13+ years of experience, I specialize in supporting teens with challenges like suicidal thoughts and relationship issues, as well as helping adults navigate marriage, parenting, and work-related stress. Recognized as the Best Marriage Therapist in San Antonio by ThreeBestRated.com, I also assist couples for lasting positive changes!
