As a therapist, I have worked in several different modalities in serving adolescent teens, and adult individuals with addiction, trauma, and other challenges.
Do you feel alone as though no one understands your pain or your struggles? Your situation is unique, yet you are not alone. Sometimes, life appears to be unmanageable, and things may have spiraled for the worse. These precipitating events you have encountered have now led you to seek solutions and counseling for guidance in your time of need. Maybe you have done some self-reflection and you do not like what you see. You aspire to improve your shortcomings but do not know where to start or who to reach out to. That is where I step in. I am dedicated to assisting you with becoming the best version of yourself amid adversity.

If you are a teen or the parent of a teen , we should talk.
Relationships are complicated, and we all need someone to occasionally help us make sense of our current situation. Counseling does that and more. Women face unique issues and experiences. Motherhood, work stress, family conflict, self-doubt, and other problems can add up. Come spend some time taking care of yourself when the demands of life become overwhelming. You are worth it.

If you find yourself in a difficult place, let me be the first to say, you are not alone. We all have times in our lives when we need a voice of hope, a listening ear, and eyes to see beyond our current circumstances. Making the decision to seek support can be a humbling, yet extremely gratifying experience. What I hope to offer is a unique space where you can be yourself, learn about yourself, and more fully live into your true identity.

I enjoy working with people who have issues such as anxiety, OCD, trauma or PTSD, grief and transitions, as well as many other issues. So many people I see are intelligent, caring, sensitive people who are wanting to make positive change in their lives and are motivated to work together with me to figure out what that can look like. They may not know how to do it, or even why they are feeling what they feel - and figuring this out together is part of the important work we can do.

Marriage and family therapy has been the focus of my training in my schooling and professional career. I use this approach (systems approach) to assist my individual, couple, and family clients. During my career I have had the opportunity to work at a hospital, school, and the court system, which all helped prepare me for private practice. I look forward to helping your family reach their goals in a holistic way.

I have practiced psychotherapy for 22 years. My treatment approach is primarily cognitive behavioral with focus on the whole person. I tailor my approach to the individual as each person brings unique needs to the encounter. We work together to find the right blend of relationship and treatment. My perspective has always been that the best work evolves out of a trusting relationship that is mutual and confidential. I approach people honestly and directly as it is my commitment that trust is necessary and central to a healthy psychotherapeutic experience.

As someone who has struggled with mental health and received support from countless loving individuals over the years, it is always my mission to extend the same level of compassion and care to my clients. I believe that therapy provides a space for individuals, couples, and families to share their experiences and pain, and find ways to transform darkness into light. My clinical interests include — but are not limited to– working with adolescents and adults in marginalized populations, such as ethnic/racial minorities, LGBTQIA+ identified, low socioeconomic status, and individuals with legal system involvement.

Often families, friends & colleagues will find themselves questioning options & even feeling they have tried everything to help someone struggling with alcoholism/addiction & mental health issues. The long standing belief that a person must reach rock-bottom before they will accept help is a distracting & dangerous lie. There is a way to intervene & create a safer rock bottom & help create a healthier life for ourselves as well as our loved one struggling with the addiction. The clinical intervention process has proven overwhelmingly successful in bringing about life-changing experiences for everyone involved in the intervention.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Waco and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
