My Approach to Helping

Seeking counseling, and the right counselor, may feel like a daunting task. The journey begins with full acceptance of you as client. Regardless of your experiences, or the path you have chosen, l can help you reach your fullest potential. My style of counseling varies, depending on the client and their specific needs. Maybe you have a problem that can be solved with just a few sessions, or perhaps you would benefit from a little extra help due to some type of long-term trauma or stress. With over 15 years of counseling experience, I am qualified to address most issues that adults and teenagers face. Still unsure? Call me for a free 10-minute consultation.

More Info About My Practice

I accept most major insurance plans, and my private pay rate is one of the lowest rates in the area. My hours are flexible, and include week nights and Saturdays. The office is centrally located on highway 6, one block south of West Little York in the west Houston area.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

My specialties include treatment for clinical depression, Bipolar disorders, drug addiction, self-esteem issues, LGBT, PTSD, anger problems, and relationship issues. I am particularly experienced in stress management and personal growth. I mostly adhere to the cognitive-behavioral model, but I also utilize EMDR and other treatment modalities.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Counseling, or therapy, coaching, and guidance, if you prefer, is a work of science and art combined, aimed to help the client deal with past, present and future. Just the fact that you are reading this paragraph is a good start. The desire to get help, and the willingness to learn and change something about yourself andor your environment is half the battle. While counseling is not for everyone, the vast majority of individuals learn something from it; for example, how to deal with problems, how to cope with past events, and how to look forward. Everyone has different goals, but each person deserves to function at their optimal capacity. Let's take this path together; how can I help?
