Trauma can come from a single incident, like a divorce or a car accident, or from stressors that span several years, such as physical or sexual abuse or parental neglect.
After 30 years of practice I still love what I do. My work is personal--only I answer calls, make appointments, greet you at the door. I want to know who you are, how I can help, what we can accomplish together. My response to you is always original and addresses your unique pain. I am trained in several theoretical models and I use them to guide my practice, but your personal struggle is the focus of our work together. You can come alone or with your partner, child, or family.

I have been a child of divorce & I have myself been divorced.
Heartbreak is as old as time and still so painful and lonely! It is a unique recovery because after a relationship loss a person is left to confront two paths of recovery at the same time. You may be both grieving the loss of your relationship while focusing on rebuilding a new life and reality. I have seen my clients grow and even thrive despite the heartache though! I am seeing clients throughout Texas online and in person for the RGV area in McAllen TX. If you are feeling down, anxious and overwhelmed by the changes in your life, I want to help you feel confident and secure again.

Welcome! If you are here is because you have taken an active role in your healing. I can help by guiding you through those confusing rough areas where you could really use an impartial and non judgmental guide.

Life is a journey comprised of various relationships which are often challenged by change. Changes in relationships are often overwhelming and cause stress, anxiety, quilt, grief, or trauma. The diagnosis of a life-limiting illness, a death, being the caregiver for someone with a chronic illness, dealing with end-of-life issues, or divorce at times is overwhelming and frustrating. During these experiences, it is important to have someone who will listen to understand your experience.

If we are to live into our potential and experience lives that are meaningful to us, it is helpful to gain insight into where we feel blocked and what needs to happen to move us closer to our authentic self. As a psychotherapist and certified psychoanalyst, I can often help you on this journey. There are many reasons why we seek individual or couple therapy. Understanding ourselves better seems to be reason enough. But for some this decision comes when we are at a particularly difficult moment in life--a death, divorce, relationship concerns, retirement or any situation which may constellate strong feelings.

Divorce Therapists

How does therapy for people affected by a divorce work?

Individuals may feel a number of emotions following a divorce, such as shock, guilt, grief, anger, and fear. Therapists offer a non-judgmental space for individuals to talk about what they’ve experienced and process their emotions. Therapists will help clients develop coping strategies. They can also help a client rebuild their sense of self and self-worth and talk about what a happier future might look like.

What’s the most common type of therapy following a divorce?

There are several types of therapy that may be useful for divorce, including cognitive behavioral, acceptance and commitment, solution-focused brief, and mindfulness-based therapies. Many therapy types are talk-therapy based, which is typically the most popular option for individuals dealing with divorce. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a widely-used talk therapy, however, there’s no specific therapy type that’s designed to help people with divorce, and different types will work depending on the person.

When should an individual seek help due to a divorce?

When the feelings of a divorced individual, or an individual going through the process of divorce, begin to disrupt healthy daily functioning, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If a person finds that they are not performing at work due to problems with anxiety or motivation, if they’re no longer seeing friends due to feelings of shame, or if they’re not properly taking care of themselves as a result of depression, speaking to a professional could help.

How do you encourage someone to go to therapy due to a divorce?

It’s helpful to express concern and love for the individual while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Sharing how the individual appears to be suffering, and what effects it has on them or on their children, should be done with compassion and empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.
