Anxiety, ADHD, depression, trauma, grief, suicidal ideation, and autism are areas where I specialize.
Ideal clients are people who realize they are struggling. They work up the courage to seek help even if it is scary or uncomfortable. People can have a wide range of issues such as anxiety, depression, grief, or trauma. The list is endless! Regardless of the issues, everyone in counseling deserves to be in a safe, respectful, and supportive environment while they work through whatever is keeping them from living their best life. These clients want to feel better, live better, and cultivate personal growth. The underlying hope when choosing to seek counseling is to progress beyond the pain and celebrate the ability to overcome.

After an 8-year career in public relations, I was called to the helping profession and received my master's in social work in 2011. Since then, I have been called a "fierce advocate" and "impassioned counselor" by my clients and colleagues. I have served as a therapist in medical/trauma and psychiatric hospitals, intensive outpatient programs (IOPs), in community health and in schools. Recently, I increased to full-time and am more than half way toward my LCSW licensure through counseling in group practice, schools (ED, ADHD, Autism , ODD) and crisis tele-behavioral health services.

Certified Autism Specialist trained in providing services to adolescents and adults on the Autism Spectrum.
Adolescents and young adults with trauma backgrounds may often feel "alone, misunderstood, and numb." It can be exhausting going through daily motions without a clear sense of purpose or feeling of belonging. As a counselor, I offer competencies in neurodevelopment, complex trauma, family systems, first responder stress, and years of experience in social work that often translates to the understanding and validation that clients experience in their first session of therapy. I work with my clients to establish clear and measurable goals. My approach to counseling is collaborative in nature. Clients want and deserve to be understood.

Fear, anxiety, and shame are often the root causes of many of our society’s mental struggles and concerns. If you feel like you are in a pit of despair or stuck in your pattern of thinking, you may need help getting a new focus or sharing your burden with someone who can listen. My specialty is adolescents or young adults who are struggling with depression or anxiety. With children, I will implement play therapy as a means to gain trust and insight into his/her motivations and the crisis present. My philosophy and interventions are faith based, research supported, and very solution focused.

What type of The Woodlands mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in The Woodlands?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
