I am licensed in Texas, Arizona, Washington, and New Mexico with 10 years of professional work experience. My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating clients with respect, positive regard, cultural sensitivity, and compassion. I work to encourage self-efficacy and authenticity. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
In my practice I help clients with depression, stress and anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, & trauma and abuse. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. If you can imagine I have a "therapeutic tool belt" with various techniques and skills that, with your feedback, we will collaboratively use to create a unique and custom therapeutic experience together. These tools are centered around a holistic approach, to include mindfulness and yoga, for those clients who would like to explore all aspects of their mental wellness.
My expertise includes providing care for our nation’s military members and their families, law enforcement and their family members, as well as working with university students, and in hospital inpatient and emergency departments.
It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and meaningful life. I am here to support & empower you in that journey. Life isn't about just making it, but to LIVE. Let's work together to create for you a whole-hearted existence rooted in your values, dreams, and goals.
