My Approach to Helping

I believe in each individual's potential for positive change and the ability to redefine their life's journey despite past experiences. I approach therapy with the belief that change in life is inevitable. However, we choose our mindset surrounding life's changes and how we view our role in relation to its unpredictable nature. A change in perspective can often be a momentous awakening when we are unable to change things outside of ourselves. This is the point where acceptance is created and peace of mind is sustained.

I view and conceptualize each individual's presenting concerns through the perspective of our evolutionary biology--emphasizing the fact that most of our current struggles are the result of modern living and it's advancements. Our brains and bodies have not evolved at the same speed as modern technology--which creates fertile grounds for the development of mental health issues. Our innate responses are aligned more closely with our past living environments. Conceptualizing presenting issues through this lens results in an understanding and normalization of one's current struggles--that not only provide insight and explanation--but also a clear obtainable path to healing.

I have worked in various settings with a wide array of client populations. I am trained in CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), CPT (Cognitive Processing Therapy), PE (Prolonged Exposure therapy), and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). My clinical focus is on helping alleviate suffering for individuals with Addiction and Trauma.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor as well as a Master Addiction Counselor. I have worked with clients in crisis situations, inpatient settings, and outpatient settings. I currently have appointments available several days a week as well as Saturdays.

More Info About My Practice

My private practice, Healthy Mindsets Therapy, is an online-based telehealth therapy focusing on individual counseling. I provide video-based therapy sessions across the state of Texas. Therapy sessions are performed in the same manner as in-office counseling--but through live video.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

I strongly believe that my experiences in life greatly improve and influence my approach to therapy. My past allows me to empathize with individuals on an experiential level. As an individual in recovery, I'm able to identify with the struggles and pain of change. This allows me to be able to foresee the process of growth from dark to light--with a unique perspective that combines my past experiences with the lens of clinical mental health education, training, and experience.
