My Approach to Helping
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Houston, Texas, having received my Master of Social Work degree from the University of Houston, and my Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of Texas at Austin. Compassion and my desire for clients to live to their full potential drive my passion in this work. My clinical approach is to work collaboratively with individuals and couples while also providing concrete steps to reach their desired goals. I work with adult individuals and couples on a variety of issues including anxiety, life transitions, trauma, grief, and marital challenges. Through the International Association of Trauma Professionals, I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist (CCTP). I am EMDR-Trained and find it to be a very helpful healing technique for trauma, including trauma associated with grief. I also have training in CBT, solution-focused approaches, and EFT. Furthermore, I am an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist (CST) through the American Association of Sexuality Educators Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) and have been an AASECT-certified as well as EMDR-Trained since 2013.
I am not in network with insurance providers, but I can provide a superbill for clients who would like to submit for potential out-of-network reimbursement. Clients will see me and not an intern. Feel free to call me and we can discuss your goals and see if it is a good fit before scheduling.
