I believe in a therapeutic process that revolves around life's changes and the journeys it takes us on. Choosing to change your focus is a powerful way of transforming any situation. Focusing on the positive doesn't mean that we are denying reality or avoiding what isn't working. It simply allows us to work from a grounded place in order to make the most informed decision from a less emotional place of clarity. Within our sessions, the goal is to cultivate a trusting and collaborative therapeutic relationship where an individual can bring their full self into session without any fear.
Do you struggle with change in any part of your life? Tough for you to make a decision? Are issues of morality and character at the bottom of your relationship conflicts? Do you have difficulty understanding concepts in religion and spirituality? Can't do any thing right? As a licensed professional counselor, I am committed to being your resource for solutions to help you overcome hardships. I would welcome the opportunity to assist you in developing and implementing a plan for growth.
Could alcohol/drug use be a problem for you? Do you have a pattern of use that is consistent in some way? Have you tried to stop, only to find things are getting worse? Do you feel helpless watching a loved one self-destruct before you? Have you tried to talk about the issue only to walk away feeling defeated and confused? Have you come to realize your life is nowhere near where you thought it would be at this time of your life? Do you feel like a stranger in your own house? Do you want peace and a sense of self again? I can help you find both.

I have a passion for working with adolescents! This is a crucial time in their lives, and I believe that with extra support they are able to reach their full potential. With girls, I focus on building their self-esteem, finding healthy coping skills and empower them to be the best version of themselves. For boys, I help them learn how to express themselves without aggressive behaviors, find an appropriate balance with their impulses and help them build a positive character within. I have experience with self-harm, suicidal ideation, aggression, impulse control and family matters.

Whether you are a teen struggling with adjusting to a new school or changing peer relationships, a college student facing a ticking clock demanding you choose a major, a young professional dealing with navigating the change from youth to adulting, or even an individual dealing with divorce or relationship concerns, I can help. All of these "normal" life changes can be accompanied by feelings of worry, stress, and anxiety that hinder our ability to progress as we need. Therapy is a wonderful means of working through the "noise" caused by anxiety, worry, and stress and dealing with the root of the issues you are facing.
Most of my clients need help managing their day to day stressors that bring on anxiety and depression. Most want practical, real- world strategies that are solution focused. They want to be heard and they want reassurance that life can be better. Some people want to “rebrand” themselves to become who they truly want to be and I help them do just that. People want help with self development and self care to enhance their lives. Most people need to tell their story to someone that cares and that they trust. They want to talk with someone that understands and that has insight to help.
***Help for adults with depression, anxiety, addiction, coping with medical conditions, and people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.*** Are you feeling down, stressed, anxious, or overwhelmed? Not sleeping well? Do things you used to enjoy no longer matter to you? Have you been through a lot, but never been able to work through it? I know how to help!
I am looking to work with adolescent and adult clients who are dealing with anxiety or trauma. The anxiety may have stemmed from a traumatic incident and may be related to a specific fear, or may have developed for no apparent reason. My clients are looking for some relief from constant negative thoughts and fears that interfere with their school, work, or social life. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, EMDR, or any other treatment that I think will be effective and help the client return to healthy functioning in a relatively short amount of time.
I love supporting clients in their exploration of new ways to express themselves and create an enriching life. My clients are often adjusting to difficult circumstances, looking to add to or revamp their coping strategies, hoping to process stressful past events, and/or improve their relationships with others and themselves. I find it helpful to reflect on the ways day-to-day challenges show up during therapy in order to practice new ways to cope with them in real time. I was based in Austin for several years and I'm now in-person in Lubbock and meet with clients online all over Texas.

Often the issues that bring a person to my practice are depression, anxiety, or traumatic events. Some struggle with eating disorders or other behaviors that control their lives. When in the midst of these issues, a person often feels helpless to change course. Reaching out for help from a trained professional is a courageous first step, a step that can change the course of your life. If you are the type of person that desires to take that first step and is willing to change what is not working for you, we will likely work well together.
You deserve a life that’s worth living even during the strife and struggle so that begs the question, how might I be of help to you?

Even if you are unsure of what that solution looks like, I believe we can find it together. I know that calling a therapist can be intimidating but I hope you will take just a moment to call and see how I can help you.
