I believe therapy is a collaborative process where you are the expert in you and I am the expert in human behavior. Together we work toward achieving your goals. I work from a cognitive-behavioral perspective, however, I am trained in a variety of techniques, including neurofeedback, and I tailor my approach to meet my client's individual needs. Many adults seek treatment when they discover that their coping strategies and survival skills of childhood don't work in adulthood. Frequently, people are feeling overwhelmed when they enter treatment. Therefore, lowering one's baseline level of distress is usually the first step.

I have always loved helping people to feel empowered about their relationships and vocations, and everyday living.

Oftentimes, "counseling" has a negative connotation - counseling is for people who have something "wrong" with them, or it's for people too weak to handle their problems on their own. I don't buy that. We live in a hurried and difficult world. Pain and confusion seem to shadow us wherever we go. Sometimes our relationships slip. Sometimes we find ourselves puzzled about meaning and purpose. Sometimes we just need someone to help us make healthy choices. In my office here in Houston, you'll find therapy is confidential, safe, and solution-oriented.
