I am licensed in Texas with 15 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, coping with addictions, relationship issues, & trauma and narcissistic abuse. I also work with those struggling with sex addiction and their partners. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.

I strongly believe if you don’t feel 100% sure of your therapist then to try a different one. I almost gave up on Therapy until I met Doris. She knows exactly how I feel and how to help me address the feeling or situation I’m going through. She is by far the best therapist and I have faith in my growth as long as she’s by my side to help. I am so thankful for her.
