My Approach to Helping

Many times clients seek counseling because they are out of solutions and think they are unequipped to solve their own issues, but I disagree. I strive to empower clients so that they can discover more effective solutions to their problems and see their own resiliency. Although I greatly focus on the present and future, I am also interested in learning about what clients have tried previously to solve their circumstances and the exceptions to their problems. Counseling is sometimes difficult and requires a level of comfort with vulnerability; however, I aim to foster a non-judgmental, accepting environment that helps clients to feel comfortable sharing their deepest thoughts and self-reflections.

I also enjoy working with both individual and relational sexual concerns. I am a Certified Sex Therapist through the Texas Sex Therapy Institute. I understand that an active sex life is incredibly important for most individuals, especially those in a relationship (all kinds of relationships!). I also know how difficult it can be to reach out for help, especially when sexual issues arise. I strive to help couples and individuals enhance intimacy, increase sexual communication with a partner, address emotional difficulties related to sexual intimacy (such as past trauma or infidelities within a relationship), and address sexual dysfunctions that have arisen. In order to accomplish this, I use a talk-based form of therapy which aims to help individuals and couples better understand and achieve the type of sex life they wish to have.

In addition to working with couples and adults, I am also passionate about working with families and adolescents. I enjoy providing a safe, therapeutic place where adolescents can share their thoughts and work through becoming individuals. I am also a proponent of family therapy to help strengthen communication and show other perspectives within the family.

I have extensive experience in Psychoeducational, ADHD, Psychological, and Autism Spectrum Disorder Evaluations. My focus is to fully understand a person's strengths while identifying growth areas to strengthen through intervention. I believe through comprehensive evaluations, a person can receive the accommodations, interventions, and support they need.

When I am not in session, I enjoy soaking in the great outdoors through hiking, camping, and canoeing with my husband and our two dogs, Atty and Slinky. I also enjoy traveling, reading, going to concerts, listening to music, collecting vinyl records, and trying out different types of yoga classes.
