I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Marriage Family Therapist, Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT), Certified Clinical Partner Specialist (CCPS), EMDR +. When people have experienced abandonment and rejection from early in life to adulthood, it can create heartbreak and betrayal like no other. If you tend to get into destructive relationships where you end up hurt or end up hurting others, the grief, despair, and shame can be debilitating and overwhelming. It will be hard to show up in your relationships and be present. There will be struggles with relationships, with work, with children, and financial issues.

So what IS therapy? Does it mean that I am crazy? Is something wrong with me? Will I be judged? No, no, and no. Despite what our peers may tell us or what we our culture has told us, therapy provides an opportunity to process your thoughts, feelings, and emotions in a safe place. It can be very instrumental in helping individuals work on resolving problems/issues, craft achievable goals, learn new patterns of thinking, and develop healthy strategies to cope with certain life challenges and difficulties in an effort to enhance overall mental health and well-being. There are just so many benefits to choosing therapy!

Finding the right match between client and therapist is the most critical factor in achieving a positive treatment outcome. It takes a great amount of trust to form a therapeutic relationship. Compassion coupled with confronting unhealthy coping that one may not be aware of are keys to lasting change. My clients often report feeling not only understood, but also helped in understanding their struggles from another perspective. Together we explore unhelpful patterns while practicing healthier ways of being. Clients know my level of sincerity, knowledge and dedication fairly quickly as I believe genuineness is essential to good treatment outcomes.

Do you find yourself doing everything “right”, but not progressing the way you imagined? Do you struggle to perform in competitions the way you do in training? Do you often use negative self talk or beat yourself up? Often, we can get in our own way by how we respond to events in our world. I work with the Institute of Sport Performance and we have helped some of the best athletes in the world excel by harnessing their mental toughness. If you, a parent, or a coach are struggling with any of these challenges or the hundreds more that have the potential to derail performance, I look forward to talking with you.

Nothing seems to make a difference. You know it's time to get real help. I am here for you, to help you make the changes you need to feel happy and fulfilled with your life again!

I use a bottom-up approach that recognizes the fact that trauma fractures the connection between the mind, and body have, so reconnecting them is important in the healing process. I understand the impact that the therapist-client bond, has on the experience and success of therapy and prioritizes creating a secure and healthy bond with my clients.

Do you feel stuck? Are you tired of working so hard and feeling like nothing ever changes? As human beings, we are creatures of habit. The way we think, reason and relate are based on patterns that have developed throughout our lives. If you continue to think - alone - about your struggles, you'll likely remain stuck in the same patterns. As human beings, we are also relational creatures. We learn about ourselves when we are in relationships with others. It is essential for any person's growth and development to think - with - another person.

My passion is helping people who struggle in their daily lives with anxiety, anger, depression and PTSD. These can all be overwhelming and can make someone feel left out. Often, they can make someone believe they are not capable of living a normal life. Many feelings and actions thrive from these struggles and some of the struggles can have serious consequences on your life and future.

I have always loved helping people to feel empowered about their relationships and vocations, and everyday living. My clients report in their testimonials that I am warm, comforting, empathetic, and easy to talk to. Some marriage counselors, psychologists and psychiatrists spend years analyzing and speculating about the root causes of a person's problem. One of my strengths is that I am able to zero in on the heart of a problem and devise effective strategies for solving it.

What type of Houston mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Houston?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
