You don't have to be alone. Not anymore. From anxiety and grief to trauma and self-esteem issues, I find deep fulfillment in working with a wide range of human experiences. It's honest to say that people are my professional life's work. I have particular focus in supporting adults and couples, particularly seniors, men, LGBTQIA individuals, and those who are neurodivergent.

Hey, I am glad that you found me, I am here to help. From childhood I had internalized negative beliefs about myself. It wasn’t until I was a young adult that I realized how these beliefs were thwarting my potential, causing anxiety, and depression. I call them silent saboteurs because these false beliefs work subconsciously to filter every event assigning meaning and value. Left unchecked, they make our lives very small. Fortunately I have found the key to defeating my silent saboteurs and I am ready to teach it to you. I can show you how to replace the negative narratives that steal your confidence and unleash your potential.

Is your relationship spinning in a rut? Is it hard (or getting hard) to talk about things and you find yourselves talking past each other saying things like "that's not what I said", "that's not what I meant", "No, that's not it", "No, you're not getting it", etc? And when you go to discuss, you both remember things completely different? To the point at times one (or both) of you feels like you are taking crazy pills? If your fights get heated, does it seem like you can't stop them from going too far no matter what you do? And it also seems like you can't get anything resolved so things get "pushed under the rug"?

Couples who begin to work with me are often arguing over trivial matters, wondering why gridlock is happening now when it never used to.The same issues keep coming up, and processing it only leaves you feeling exhausted and isolated. Nothing changes and the conflict involves pointing fingers, bringing up past wrongs, and tearing each other down. Money-related fights may add strain, perhaps alongside issues involving alcohol, pornography, or betrayal. Intimacy is lacking, leaving you both feeling unloved. What if you had the tools to fix your relationship? A playbook for the hard times but also a playbook to have way more good times?

Less than 16% of therapists in Texas are male, which may very well be why so many men don’t go to therapy. I specialize in men’s issues including fatherhood, life transitions and stigma. Additionally, families often need support when raising their children. I work with families and children through difficult transitional times, such as grief, school anxiety, college transitions, and family communication.

My clinical psychology practice involves working with adults experiencing significant life transitions as well difficult emotional states. For many, depression and anxiety that stem from loss, grief and isolation, have been more difficult to manage because of the pandemic. Self-esteem and relationship difficulties have also been more troublesome during this time. I am particularly interested in helping people learn new ways to adapt to changing life circumstances, such as the consequences of the pandemic, adult children leaving home, managing chronic illness, deaths of significant others, and loss of what is familiar.

Everyone has experienced a sleepless night where the burdens and worries of our lives have kept us tossing and turning. Many times those closest to us are the very ones we cannot turn to for help. This is all part of life. But when the tossing and the turning become a constant companion, and when family and close personal relationships become more stressful than supportive, we need a safe place to unburden our inner thoughts, worries and fears. This safe haven is where you can uncover new direction for your life and begin to move into wholeness, free of feeling fragmented.

The pit in your stomach as you walk into the office. You meant to leave early, but you are running late, again. Hopefully the boss doesn’t notice. You have a to do list, that you left “somewhere around here”. At home, there is the bill pile next to the mail pile, but they disappear if you can’t see them. You have the best of intentions, but the missed appointments and missed deadlines are piling up. You tried one planner system, then another, but nothing ever seems to really change. The worst is this feeling that you are not living up to who you want to be… and it is hard to picture how to make this any better.

Cultivating and maintaining meaningful connections is an important key to well being.Disconnection often occurs as the result of relationship challenges, difficult losses, interpersonal struggles and addictive patterns. In addition, shame is often associated with interpersonal struggles and may be at the root of many psychological issues including depression and anxiety. My training includes an internship and post-graduate fellowship at the Menninger Clinic, Professionals In Crisis Unit. I have also completed specialized training in couples therapy, shame resiliency and mindfulness-based treatment for depression and anxiety.

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.
