My Approach to Helping
I am a licensed professional counselor and licensed marriage and family therapist in the state of Texas with over 13 years of clinical experience working with adults struggling with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, adjustment to life changes and griefloss. My counseling style is warm and approachable. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My therapeutic background combines cognitive-behavioral, rational-emotive and trauma-focused techniques.
I am trained in Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT). I will use these skills to tailor your needs and develop a treatment plan that best suits your goals. I truly believe that rapport and therapeutic relationships are extremely important for therapy to be successful, therefore we will take some time to make sure I am the right fit for you and I will never be offended if you feel you need a different approach. It takes courage to take the steps to start counseling and I will honor and respect your journey through this season of life. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to walk alongside you with encouragement and support!
I look forward to working with you!
