In addition to my work with adults, I have long had a passion for working with children, both as a former preschool teacher and co-founder/designer of a children's clothing brand.
I am passionate about working with children, teens, young adults, and parents navigating a variety of challenges including anxiety, self-esteem, phase of life adjustments, and relationship issues. My goal is to provide a warm, accepting, and empathetic space for clients to explore their presenting concerns and goals using a person-centered therapeutic approach. I work collaboratively with clients to promote enhanced self-insight and develop meaningful tools for lasting change and transformational growth.

I am a psychologist who is board certified in sleep medicine. I treat insomnia, virtually any sleeping disorder, and circadian rhythm disorders, in children and adults. I use evidence based medicine approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy of insomnia (CBT-I), CBT for anxiety and depression, and IRT for nightmares and PTSD. I directed the sleep disorders center at Children's Medical Center and the sleep medicine fellowship program at UT Southwestern Medical Center. CBT-I is rapid and efficacious for treatment of insomnia. CBT is also time limited for anxiety and/or depression. IRT works rapidly for nightmares.

I have worked with children, teens, and adults with a variety of problems like families involved with CPS, parenting skills, mental illness, addiction treatment for individuals & their families, unemployed individuals (career counseling), depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, anger issues, bullying, marital problems, self-injury, abuse, grief, & many more.
There is not a specific type of therapeutic style or approach that works for everyone: age, ethnicity, all of this may play a part into stressors and how we cope with them. Therefore, the services are built around the individuals or family needs, focusing on strengths and values. I believe there is nothing we can’t overcome and the first step is seeking the help. Therapy is about acquiring the tools we need when faced with adversity. If you’re reading this, then you’re already on your way to change. Life is full of challenges, struggles, and stressful situations. WE have all been there before.
