It's sometimes very difficult to be a human! In fact, life can become overwhelming. Sometimes we need help sorting through the issues that are hindering our well-being and happiness. For over 20 years I have worked with people of all ages in a variety of settings. Since 2000 I have been in private practice in Richardson. I have experienced over 1000 hours of continuing education courses, and tens of thousands of hours in counseling experience

I provide therapy for children, adolescents and adults, both individually and in relationship therapy. Life is too short. Happiness must not be an option but an imperative. My clients enjoy the therapeutic process and often tell me they appreciate being understood and accepted as they are. I enjoy being a part of that process.

If you would like to talk to me by phone please call me to discuss your therapy needs. You can also email me, if you prefer. Feel free to schedule an appointment online. I am looking forward to meeting you!

More Info About My Practice

Once you schedule an appointment we will verify your benefits. This is a process that lets us know the insurance company's responsibility in the payment process. As a network provider with most major insurers and employee assistance programs, your fees will be at a lower than "out of pocket" rate. Be sure to check your benefits package yourself to see if you have an EAP (employee assistance program) benefit. If you do, you may be eligible for sessions with absolutely no cost to you.

I also have a sliding fee scale for those with very large deductibles or no insurance benefits.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

The most fulfilling aspect of my life as a psychotherapist is building relationships the people who trust me as their therapist. . Most of the best people I have ever known are people I have only known in the counseling room. I enjoy knowing their stories, their triumphs, and their losses. People are important. Their lives are filled with stories and interpretations of stories. Being "stuck" is no fun. I've been stuck! I love to help others create new pathways for their lives.
