My approach to therapy comes from a depth psychological perspective. We will work together in an atmosphere of mutual respect and regard for your healing process. Our focus is centered on your experience and your development. We will address issues of depression, anxiety, self esteem, childhood trauma and midlife and late life issues for men and women as well as relationship issues. Some of the goals of therapy are psychological integration and the cultivation of new life, inner purpose and discovery of meaning.
My clients most often come to me with relationship issues, oftentimes discovering that their issues stem from a lack of relationship with themselves. Loss of connection is strong in today’s world, and in therapy we work together to reconnect and recharge your internal relationship with self. In doing so, the magic is, that our external relationships will change as well, and for the better. Finding meaning, discovering your purpose, and fulfilling your very human need for relationship and connection are at the heart of the therapy that I will offer you.
Thank you for reaching out. It takes a lot of courage to seek therapy. I am fortunate to be able to provide high quality counseling via encrypted, confidential video by computer, tablet or phone for all of Texas and Oregon. Change is possible and easier with someone by your side for support, information and problem solving.
Maybe you're trying all that you know how to do, and still feeling stuck, anxious, or discouraged. You're finding it difficult to navigate changes in your life, your relationships aren't what you would like, or your self-confidence has slipped or seems non-existent. Sometimes, the most helpful thing may be to find a counselor to support you along the way. My approach to counseling is strength-based, personalized to your needs, and founded on the belief that you possess a tremendous capacity for growth & healing.
Licensed Professional Counselor, MDiv, MEd, LPC, NBCC
All of us experience some confusion, anxiety, sadness, or conflict periodically, but if daily life becomes characterized by those feelings, something about life is out of balance. Do you feel stuck in a relationship or job, or troubled with negative, or fearful thoughts that won't go away? Sometimes we can loose a sense of hopefulness and pleasure about life. Perhaps we experienced a recent or far distant loss that left us floundering in sadness and grief. Maybe we have become weary searching for spiritual fulfillment, yet finding most ideas of a higher power to be disheartening or unbelievable.
A healthy life is full of transformation, change and growth. Sometimes the normal "growing pains" are accompanied by isolation, depression, anxiety and real loss.
I welcome people who have the courage to seek another view point, to break the isolation and find the hidden beauty of transformation, amidst the chaos.
I am well versed in the many unique, awe-inspiring wonders of young people, as well as the challenges that come their way. Therapy is an opportunity to help connect with what matters, navigate the world, discover your power within, and create a future that is healthy. We all want to feel secure in who we are and what our place is in this world.
NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Therapy can be challenging, but can also be deeply satisfying & transformative when you find the right match with someone you trust, and who brings out the best in you. As your therapist, my aim is to help you find greater happiness in your self, your life and your relationships. I believe that the way we think, feel and behave are intertwined, and often a change in just one of these areas can ripple into the others. I provide support for change, both big & small, with compassion, humor & non-judgmental positive regard.
Feel stuck, stressed, anxious, sad or angry? Find yourself repeating behaviors you wish you didn't or unable to communicate effectively? Maybe a combination of these? You are not alone. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can help you alleviate and better manage unwanted cycles of behaviors, thoughts and feelings long term. I specialize in effective communication and in reduction of anxiety, stress, anger, depression, addictive and self destructive behavior. I have helped many people increase their life fulfillment, balance, goal attainment and healing. I tailor treatment to your specific needs in a caring, safe and supportive space.
If you are experiencing a frustratingly familiar cycle in life or with your relationship, I encourage you to reach out in whichever way is easiest---email, phone or text---and see if we can start creating something new and healthier for yourself. It is truly comforting to have a safe place where you can be heard, where you can begin to have hope for more consistent and secure connection. Our immediate focus would be on making your daily life and relationships more manageable. We then would work together identifying unsatisfying patterns and exploring more successful ways to say and get what you need.
Hello there. I have experience working with the full spectrum of life’s stages. With over 12 years of clinical experience, I am trained in Brainspotting, EMDR, and other evidence-based techniques. Current areas of interest include Attachment Theory, The Highly Sensitive Person, Trauma work, Identity fluidity, Internal Family Systems, hypnotherapy, mindfulness/meditation, neuroplasticity, Jungian Dreamwork, and the Enneagram as it pertains to more fully understanding oneself and one's core wounds. My philosophical approach to therapy is person-centered and I see each person as uniquely shaped by their biopsychosocial make-up.
I value therapy for the opportunity to support you in exploring the places just beyond your comfort zone with curiosity and compassion. I am most experienced treating trauma, adult children of addiction, life transitions, anxiety, and relational issues. My approach is eclectic and strengths-based, drawing from a combination of EMDR/Flash Technique, psychodynamic theories, current neuroscience, yoga and mindfulness practices, and social work values.

As a mental health counselor, I am committed to helping women and men with anxiety, panic attacks, depression, addiction, and PTSD. I want to help you explore your history in order to discover the origins of your troubles and overcome them. Through collaborative exploration, we identify your strengths and coping methods, review the issues you wish to address and goals you have. Once you identify your strengths and coping methods, and gain more insight into problems that have been keeping you stuck, you will naturally begin to experience a healthy shift in your mood and perspective.
My approach is collaborative, intuitive, and creative to help clients access the power of their innate wisdom and inspiration to cultivate personal healing, wellbeing, and a meaningful life. We work together to help you embrace opportunities and transform challenges in the midst of whatever difficulties you might be facing.

Each of us goes through periods where we feel stuck or overwhelmed and the path through has become difficult to find. My hope is to provide a space and relationship where you can better understand yourself and find the freedom to move forward again. From the first meeting, I approach therapy as a collaborative process where it is most important that you feel understood, supported, and accepted. I value being able to support people of diverse identities and backgrounds. Your many cultural contexts are important to me in understanding the shape of your life and struggles.
I work with individuals, couples, and families on a variety of issues including: parenting and school issues, TAG, underachievement, and learning disabilities; trauma healing; healthy communication; relationship dynamics; anxiety and depression; and chronic illness. People do the best they can at any given time. Sometimes life brings challenges which can overwhelm an individual's, couple's or family's resources. I work with clients to assess their current situation, identify goals, and develop strategies to meet those goals in a timely manner. My clients find ways to supplement existing coping skills and develop new approaches to replace ineffective strategies.
No openings until mid-June. I specialize in and only work with children 5 years and younger and their parent or caregivers. Are you experiencing challenges with your child's behaviors or emotions relating to a big life change or family stress? Do your child's big feelings seem like too much for them and you to handle? I am a certified provider of both Child Parent Psychotherapy and ARC with 10 years of practice dedicated exclusively to work with parents to support increasing skills to help parenting feel more manageable and I work with young children to help them better manage their feelings and behaviors.
