I believe everyone can benefit from therapy. My focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. I strive to achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a treatment plan unique to you. I utilize a psychodynamic approach, taking into account each clients needs. Some methods I use are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Client Centered Therapy (Rogerian Therapy), and the Gottman Method. I enjoy working with teens and adults in all phases of life. If you are struggling with life transitions, bullying, LGBTQ+ issues, or general stresses of life, I promise to be there for you through every step of your journey. My specialized training to work with the LGBTQ+ community includes completion of a certification program through Evolving Personalized Inclusivity Competence (E.P.I.C.) Ally Training. I also have specialized training to work with couples and relationship issues through completion of the Gottman Method, Level I. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life. As your therapist, I will assist you in every aspect of your journey to better mental health. From intake, to discharge, and everything in between, you will feel validated along the way. Please feel free to call the office at 832-291-6723 to ask any questions you may have or to make an appointment. I currently have availability on Thursdays with a session fee of $145 per 45-50 minute appointment. Virtual and in-person therapy options are available to all my clients.

I believe a safe, creative space is required for healing to happen, and work to build this space with my clients. I believe each client should have customized treatment, that plays to their own strengths, and I draw from several therapeutic techniques to make this happen. I use EMDR, yoga therapy, mindfulness, and somatic therapy techniques to help clients find contentment in life. I believe in the value of vulnerability in therapy, and am committed to the work required to be able to be fully present to each day. My focused areas of study include child and adult trauma, depression, and anxiety. I strive to be a source of honest support, deep listening, understanding, change processes and, at times, direct advice. I have a passion for working with people to create joyful, more satisfying, balanced, and interesting lives. The purpose of therapy is to offer a safe, comfortable, and supportive environment to find perspective and solve problems. I specialize in trauma and anxiety by drawing from various treatment styles to personalize a treatment plan for each of my clients. I’m happy to speak or email before an initial appointment, to make sure you feel comfortable. I have immediate availability on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm and Wednesdays from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm with a session fee of $145 per 45-50 minute appointment. I am currently providing virtual therapy only at this time. Please note services are out-of-network with all insurance plans.

I believe therapy can be one of the most rewarding and valuable relational experiences in an individual’s life. The intimate and nonjudgmental conversation provides the ideal space for the connection and understanding that we all yearn for as human beings. The therapeutic relationship also serves to identify behaviors and ways of thinking that might make this type of connection more difficult in the outside world. I view therapy as a partnership which requires dedication and commitment from both therapist and client. My orientation is primarily humanistic, and I work from an interpersonal frame of reference, though I draw interventions from a variety of theoretical backgrounds. We all confront conflict in life that often produces a great deal of anxiety. My role is to help clients create a personal narrative that provides the meaningful life experience they desire. My therapeutic approach takes into consideration the uniqueness and complexity of each client. I am interested in building on strengths that individuals already possess, while also helping to identify areas for growth and change. Deciding to pursue therapy can be a life changing decision, and as such deserves the utmost respect and commitment from me. I will continually strive to learn and grow alongside my clients, as I believe that is a hallmark of fully engaged and successful therapy. I work with individuals (ages 18 and up), couples, and families with a variety of presenting issues such as anxiety, depression, self-sabotaging behaviors, relational issues, and parenting challenges. My areas of interest and continued study include couples therapy and social anxiety. I have also completed training in the Gottman Therapy approach to working with couples. Current availability includes in-person and virtual therapy options on Wednesday mornings 9:00 am to 12:00 pm and Thursday phone or virtual appointments are available from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. Current session fees are $135 per 45-50 minute session. Please note services are out-of-network for all insurance plans. I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

I am passionate about helping people find their way by helping them take another step closer to the future they envision. I believe people can overcome their hardest moments in life. My desire is to walk with you through the difficulties of life to help find the solutions you are seeking. The role I play in your journey is not one I take lightly. I see counseling as an emotional and spiritual process. I am willing to invite a biblical perspective and integrate the Christian faith into counseling for those seeking this approach. My theoretical approach to counseling is from the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) principles. In this approach you will find mindfulness skills to be in the present moments of life, connection to your values, and fostering committed action to move forward towards your goals. I have experience with a variety of mental health difficulties such as anxiety, depression, grief, and other life stressors. My focus and concentration has primarily been in helping individuals overcome eating disorders and body image distress. Wherever you find yourself I am honored to help you on this journey of life. To schedule an appointment with me, please call the office at (832) 291-6733. I have availability on Monday afternoons/evenings with a session fee of $145 per 45-50 minute appointment.

Holding a deep appreciation and respect for psychotherapy, I support each of my clients with the ideal balance of nurturance and firmness that is often necessary to accomplish deep personal work. I am able to do my best work with clients who match my full commitment to the therapeutic process because that is where true change occurs and the biggest rewards are found. I possess a true passion for my work with clients, which is evident in my unwavering commitment to their success. I recognize how terrifying it can be to face deeply rooted issues, so I work hard to establish a safe therapeutic environment with attention to everything from the office experience to how fully present I am in each of my client's sessions. I place premium value on collaborative efforts between clients and therapists, meaning we join together to meet your goals. Real therapy and especially deep personal work is intense and requires vulnerability, trust, and hard work in order to create and maintain life long changes. I'm not a quitter and won't give up on my clients when the therapy gets tough. I primarily approach my work from a psychodynamically based model, which includes an emphasis on how unconscious psychological processes may be related to current patterns of relating, feeling, and behaving. I am an out-of-the box creative thinker who uses a variety of therapeutic techniques to facilitate the healing process, including deep inner child work, art therapy techniques, and role play. I additionally enjoy working with professional therapists who are interested in and committed to their own therapy work.
