If you're reading this, you're already on the road to a better life! It takes a great deal of courage to reach out for help. I know--I've done it myself many times in my life, and I've worked as a clinical psychologist in Texas for over a decade helping others do the same.
My clinical experience is varied, including extensive experience working with veterans, LGBTQ issues, transgender issues, and all of the numerous effects of PTSD and experiencing trauma and abuse. I also have a background in smoking cessation, both with veterans and through the American Cancer Society. And like many clinicians, I also have much experience in issues such as depression, low self-esteem, stress management, and anxiety. I also enjoy working with people in helping professions and caregivers who need support to keep doing the important work that they do. Along with this, I am also a registered yoga teacher and will at times use breathing techniques and mindfulness techniques in my clinical practice if my clients decide they would like to do so.
I believe that we work best as a team. My counseling style has been described as warm, gentle, empathetic, and compassionate. I know we are all different, so I work with you as an individual to determine what is important to you and how we can best get there together. You know yourself and your life situation better than anyone else.
There is a theme in all the work I do and people I have helped. I use techniques from cognitive-behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and humanistic/existential therapy to help my clients remember their strengths, use challenges as fuel for growth, and to help them build a life that feels fulfilling, rich, and meaningful. It's not always easy, but I'll be with you along the way, and it'll be worth the effort.
