About me

I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) in the United Kingdom. Former a Licensed Professional Counsellor, Texas. I have a Master's Degree in Psychology - Counselling, from the University of North Texas, Denton, Texas, USA. Former Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) Texas and California, USA. Per CACREP and the Texas State Board of Behaviour Health, post master's degree (post-qualification) required successfully passing the National Certified Counsellor exam (NCC) and completing 3,000+ hours of clinical supervision for licensing (minimum 1 hour of supervision per week). Note: I am not from Texas!

Therapy provides an opportunity to process, grow, and heal. My therapeutic approach is through the utilisation of Integrative Therapy. Integrative psychotherapy involves drawing upon more than one modality. With the blending of relevant theory (evidence-based) and interventions, an approach is formed to suit the needs of the client.

These therapeutic techniques and interventions include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, REBT, inner child, client-centred, Transgenerational, Gottman aka Sound Relationship House Theory, and others specifically catered to each individual, couple, or family.

The utilisation of various systems in assisting clients to build tools and strategies, such as emotional regulation work (thoughts and feelings); anxiety reducers; processing approaches; communication techniques; and help assist those in building healthier self-worth and a sense of empowerment.

Teletherapy:
I only do teletherapy via video, phone calls only when a therapeutic relationship is established - no therapy via messaging. I also need to know the basics of your case and your needs before agreeing to begin treatment, even if the algorithm matches us. This is to ensure I am a good clinical fit for you, and can responsibly and compassionately support you in therapy.

Lastly, BetterHelp (or speciality site) is not appropriate if you are in crisis or in immediate need of support. In crisis situations, please call 999 or local emergency (A & E) services.
