I am a licensed Clinical Social Worker in Texas with 13 years of experience working with children, teens and their families. I use a collaborative approach, working with the client to identify issues affecting their lives and working together to facilitate hope, healing and growth.
I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, depression, anger, & parenting challenges. I also have experience working with concentration, memory and focus (adhd).
I use a variety of techniques based on client strengths and needs to focus on current concerns and past experiences to facilitate healing and change. I assist clients in recognizing negative thinking patterns and behavior, to change those patterns and move towards growth, increased quality of life and healing. Treatment approaches are all strengths-based and include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Focused CBT& Person-centered Therapy.

You can tell she listens by the way she summarizes what you tell her. She was able to help me see things from very positive perspectives which helped me come out of my depression. The best part is that her advice and recommendations are given in a Christian context which is very helpful to those on a Christian journey.
