Waitlist for new clients
THERApY SUCkS! Not really. . . but it can be uncomfortable. I can help. I currently have a waitlist for new clients for standard therapy sessions, however I am taking new client "intensives". An intensive session is an efficient and novel approach to trauma therapy where we spend anywhere from 2 to 4 hours in focused sessions. Additionally, I offer 1-day, 2-day, and 3-day intensive sessions working with EMDR and/or ART. I am trained in EMDR (through an EMDRIA approved training) and Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), a relatively new, evidence-based therapy for PTSD and trauma. Reach out for a free consult to learn more.

I am dedicated to supporting all members of the Houston community on their journey towards recovery. While I am here for everyone, I have a particular focus and prior experience in assisting professionals, entrepreneurs, executives, high-net-worth individuals, and members of the LGBTQ+ community. I understand the unique challenges faced by those dealing with substance abuse, addiction, depression, anxiety, ADHD, Attachment Injury, and Trauma. Many feel trapped or overwhelmed, having attempted to manage their struggles independently. Let's navigate this journey together, working towards lasting recovery and holistic well-being.

One of the beliefs of some counselors is that people have all the resources they need to make the changes or fix the problems in their life. Counselors are just tools that you use to acheive what you want. So true, but when you're looking for a counselor to assist you, the problem may seem too big to handle. Let me help. I have a great ability to focus and elevate your own skills and reveal your solutions.

Joseph Campbell once said, "The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are." As a therapist, I believe there can be no greater goal than to help you become your authentic self. By acknowledging you as the expert in your own life, and not imposing my own ideas of who you "should" be, my role is to help you work through any old survival strategies, reactive patterns, and physical/emotional traumas that prevent you from being the person you were meant to be, and living the life you were meant to live.

Therapy is a journey and not always the easiest to embark upon and just showing up is half the battle. As a therapist it’s my job to gently guide you through this process. Developing a therapeutic relationship is the cornerstone of the work of therapy. In the first few appointments I will get to know you and the various problems that have kept you from reaching your goals. From there we will work together on reaching positive goals. I enjoy coffee, college sports, my dogs, travel, and collecting mechanical watches.

There is nothing more isolating than feeling like you’re alone in your experiences—constantly Googling what “normal” would feel like. Your life feels everything but normal, and in an attempt to make your life seem like everything’s fine, you don’t talk about your anxiety. You don’t talk about the crippling stress you feel at work. You don’t talk about how you haven’t eaten today. You desperately want to feel normal, and you want everyone to think everything is okay. But you are far from okay. You constantly wonder if other people feel the way you do.

I'm proud of you. Awareness is the first step and searching for a therapist means you are already on a path to self-betterment. My role is to be a companion, someone to walk that path with you and help unlock personal insights and perspectives to improve your quality of life. Change is the unknown, so it is scary and difficult. We can become too comfortable in our routine of life, but your presence here means you are ready for the next adventure. Allow me to connect with you to fulfill my life's purpose and help you reach your full potential. You are not alone and you are cared for, even by people you haven't met yet.

Male Therapists

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
