I am a Licensed professional counselor in Texas. I have five years of experience in the field. I have a PhD. in psychology and specialize in trauma. I work with individuals to develop healthy behaviors, so that their quality of life can significantly improve. I take a collaborative approach so that the client feels empowered and is able to be actively engaged in their treatment.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together we will explore the reasons for seeking therapy. The therapeutic relationship is essential and we begin to build trust and establish healthy communication. I like to get an overall perspective of the client and their goals. By establishing an open, collaborative relationship, I am then able to develop a strong treatment plan for the client.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I have experience with a wide range of populations, in various levels of care, which has enhanced my ability to help my clients work through various mental health and life challenges. I am extremely empathetic and focus on the strengths of the client.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

CBT is great for challenging negative or anxious thoughts and developing positive thought patterns. I work with the client to identify and challenge unhelpful thought patterns and develop healthy patterns to reduce symptoms.

Couples Counseling

I provide a safe, encouraging space for couples to develop healthy communication and overall relationship satisfaction. I have been working with couples for 4 years, in person and telehealth settings.

Mindfulness-Based Therapy

I have 4 years of utilizing mindfulness into therapy work. I work to help the client reconnect with themselves and live in the present moment which can reduce symptoms of trauma, anxiety and depression.

Solution Focused Brief Treatment

I focus on strengths and identifying solutions to challenges that clients may be facing. Solution focused therapy focuses on applying what works to get reasonably fast results.

Trauma Informed Care

I have 4 years experience of working with individuals who have experienced trauma. I have additional training in trauma therapy. I work to provide a safe environment, and by using research-based interventions, work towards reducing symptoms of trauma and PTSD
