I am interested in getting to know each of my clients and forming a close, collaborative relationship that affords them the freedom to learn more about themselves. Creating this type of unique relationship is invaluable to the therapeutic process. The opportunity to grow in self awareness can be a powerful way to learn about what motivates us and how our histories affect us throughout our lives. I have both personal and professional experience with individuals in the LBGTQ community, and extensive work helping people with disabilities entering the workforce.

I am an attachment-based psychotherapist and yoga therapist with a decade of experience, and an eclectic blend of training and knowledge. More than that, though, I am a person who loves to be witness to the pains, joys, and experiences of others. It's hard to sum up the deep work that my clients and I do, but overall, I like to help people increase their tolerance for discomfort in order to deepen their capacity for insight, growth, and awareness. This helps them to see themselves with more clarity and acceptance, and feel more at peace in their lives.

Enough! Every day is a struggle and you've had enough! Perhaps you're sick of pretending life is good and you're happy. Perhaps you're tired of not feeling safe, always being on guard. Perhaps you've had enough of relationships that don't last, friendships falling apart. Maybe you're tired of putting others needs first, never considering your own. Maybe you're sick of believing your worthless, even hating yourself. Or you're done blowing up over small things, being full of rage. Perhaps it's something else, whatever it is, you've had enough!

Therapy shouldn't have to be complicated - it's really about sitting down and talking with another person. What is most crucial - perhaps even more important than credentials and education - is that you feel comfortable with your therapist; otherwise, the therapy won't work. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist (in Texas and California) as well as a certified alcohol and drug counselor. I have been in practice since 1994 and work with individuals, couples, families, and adolescents.
