My Approach to Helping
As an marriage and family therapist, I view client challenges from a systemic perspective. Which means an assessment of the clients family history and relationship may play a role in presenting life challenges. Working with me you will gain the tools and knowledge that will decrease your present symptoms (anxiety, depression or stress) and increase your ability to manage life in a healthier way.
The use of effective treatments such as Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing-EMDR Certified and Flash Technique (Trauma), Gottman (for couples) and Cognitive Behavior Therapy allows me to create a space where individuals and couples can feel safe and supported while healing from life and relationship stressors and challenges. If this healing approach appeals to you please contact me.
More Info About My Practice
In addition to my work as a clinician I am certified by the state of Texas to provide supervision to LMFTAs. This is a passion project for me because I enjoy working with new therapists and assisting in their journey to become compassionate, informed and effective clinicians. If this connects with you and couples and trauma work are areas you want to focus on, we maybe a good fit. If so contact me and lets discuss.
How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
Being a wife for almost 30 years and a mother of three, two young adults (26 and 20 yo) and a teen I can provide not only educational knowledge but lived experiences when treating clients. I know what its like to manage the stressors of life while attempting to find a healthy balance within relationships that are important to me. The goal of couples therapy is helping clients work through conflict in a healthy way NOT to stop conflict all together. Misunderstandings and disagreements are a part of every healthy relationship its HOW you work through them that matters! #THISTOOHASVALUE#PSRCOUNSELING
