Are you the strong friend who silently bears the weight of the world while yearning for a moment of peace amid the chaos of work and life? Carrying the weight of the world in silence is a heavy burden and even the strong need a sanctuary. Sometimes we need help learning strategies to manage it all.

In my practice, I base my treatment on solution focused therapy, strength based, goal-focuses as well as cognitive-behavioral therapy to help my clients achieve long-term success in confronting their challenges. However, I value your time and understand that no two clients are the same, therefore I create a plan based on the needs of each client. My practice is unique because I am straight forward with my clients so they understand the steps that they may need to take to be successful while empathizing with their situation. No matter what stage of support or healing you may be in, I'll always meet you exactly where you are. ​

I am a queer, nonbinary therapist who specializes in working with clients of all ages who are exploring their gender, sexual or romantic identity, and/or sexual trauma. There's no such thing as TMI in therapy with me: we can talk about sex, dating, abuse, religion, money, family, and other "shameful" topics without judgment. We can cuss, cry, laugh, share memes, and make darkly inappropriate jokes about mental health. Therapy requires honesty and cutting through the bs; we find healing and joy through authentic connection with others.

As an LCSW and psychotherapist, I offer individual therapy to clients 18 and older. I am committed to creating a judgment-free environment that is safe and supportive. Stress can present itself in many ways, causing us to feel disconnected from ourselves and others. It is typical for us to experience feelings of self-doubt. Our thoughts make it difficult for us to cope and achieve fulfillment in our lives. At times we feel overwhelmed and distressed, leading us to resort to unhealthy behaviors. I am here to guide and assist you in implementing the skills to reach your goals and move forward in your life.

Choosing a therapist can be challenging in a lot of ways. For starters, you're probably looking for a therapist because things are a bit tricky right now. You might be feeling anxious already and it can take time to find someone you can talk to. Then, when you finally do meet with someone, it can be hard to trust the therapist in the very first session. On top of that, when you finally DO find the person you're comfortable talking to, your insurance might not cover your sessions, or maybe you don't have insurance at all.

Your life looks accomplished and successful. Yet you still feel that you are not good enough. Your chorus of what-ifs keeps you questioning yourself. You give your best to others but don’t feel appreciated. You feel tired and overwhelmed. It is time for a change.

You’ve tried to mask your feelings and hold everything together. You have probably told yourself, “I’ve got this under control”, but your actions say differently. Your version of control has been drinking excessively to relax and calm your nerves. You withdraw from your family so you can decompress, but so far nothing seems to help. You cannot escape the feeling. You can’t outrun the problem. As a first responder, you are trained on how to survive, be resilient, strong, to solve others problems, and not show weakness, but what about your problems? When do you get to admit that you need help?

Houston is fortunate to have many wonderful psychologists and mental health providers. Establishing a therapeutic relationship that is a good fit is important, as the work of therapy can be challenging and sometimes painful (in addition to being meaningful and fulfilling!). I specialize in the treatment of anxiety-based disorders and primarily work with individuals with OCD, PTSD, generalized anxiety (worry), social phobia, and perfectionism. I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and exposure-based treatment to help individuals improve the way they relate to themselves and the world around them.

Have you ever felt helpless, hopeless, powerless, worthless, lost, alone or confused? How about angry, hurt, frustrated or sad? Then you are not alone. Counseling helped me and my family after a tragedy to redefine our journey and know that our story was not over. Strangely enough, because of this tragedy, I have learned to live in excitement of what the next page of my story will be. As a therapist, I now have the opportunity to help other people know their story is not over and help to write their next page.

I have had the pleasure of witnessing the growth and seeing change through providing person-centered therapy.
