I've been working as a therapist for several years now and I find my vocational pursuits diversifying into a more holistic perspective of how human beings heal. I work with people where they are and I'm interested in what my clients bring with them that they're able to use in our collaborative effort to work for their better health. We are dynamic as human beings and a static solution is rarely satisfying or helpful. I consider my "approach" to be eclectic. I'm open to using what we need to in order to help you move in the direction you'd like to with particular problems or any perspective you might need.
I am a LCSW, LCDC, and Certified EMDR therapist providing in-person and tele-health therapeutic services across the state of Texas.

I draw on multiple treatment modalities to guide clients in identifying their strengths to develop treatment plans that accomplish their goals and find solutions to elicit the change they desire. Let's discover your path to healing.
Are you a high-achieving, over-thinker, perfectionist, that struggles with slowing down or relaxing? Are you really hard on yourself? Do you feel like you're being crushed by your responsibilities? The clients I work with answer yes to these questions. They also identify as the eldest child, perfect child, child of alcoholics, or the only child. They have experienced childhood traumas or attachment wounds from their child-parent relationship. They have read self-help books and still struggle with finding relief. Does any of this resonate with you?

Licensed Professional Counselor, MEd, LPC-S , LCDC
My view of counseling is simple, and based upon three core principles: authenticity, (being true to oneself), honesty, and growth. A foundation of truth is solidified by meeting you where you are in your journey. This is accomplished by providing a nonjudgmental ear, and a supportive, safe presence. My goal is for you to feel heard as well as empowered by knowledge and skills to recognize your worth and embody change. I prefer working with adult clients who are ready and willing to put in some real work toward change and self-improvement.

Over the last 20 years working as a psychotherapist, I have found that, we all long to be truly seen, heard, and understood; to experience real connection and be known by others. When these needs are not adequately met, it affects us deeply and may manifest as depression, anxiety, and many times addiction. Sometimes traumatic events occur in our lives, and we have difficulties creating or maintaining relationships. I'm here to help clear the trauma of the past or guide you through challenges of the present. I will help guide you in a way that is collaborative and centered on your goals and desires.
There is no shame in exploring who you are, whether it is through your emotions, thoughts, behaviors, or relationships. We often feel lost, scared, confused or alone when navigating through life's struggles. I am passionate about empowering others who feel misunderstood or lost to fully embrace who they are and where they are headed.
There has to be more in life than what I have? Why do I continue to do the things I do? Why do I feel detached from life? Why do I continue to use things that I know are not good for me? Will things ever get better? These are a few of the many questions I faced daily in active addiction. The good news is there is a solution! There is freedom! Let us work collaboratively and walk together on your path of recovery.
