My Approach to Helping
I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor Located in Dallas, Texas. I graduated from Tarleton State University with a bachelor of science in Psychology. I then attended Southern Methodist University and graduated with a Master of Science in Counseling. Additionally I am a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor and treat those who have experienced Trauma. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) which allows me to effectively treat many kinds of trauma as well as a wide variety of other issues. I have specialized training and am passionate about working with LGBTQ+ clients.I provide individual, couples, and family therapy to those who are struggling with a wide variety of mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, LGBTQ issues, family of origin issues, and identity issues. Individual therapy begins with an initial intake session so that I can learn more about who you are as a person, or who you want to be.
Finding a good fit in a therapist is essential to your therapeutic process. As a therapist, it is also important for me to feel that connection with my clients. I use a compassionate, nurturing approach while being direct as needed. I take into account what you've experienced in the past combined with your current symptoms and help you come up with a plan.
