My Approach to Helping

Hello. I am a licensed psychologist (in Texas and in Alberta, Canada) with over 17 years of clinical experience helping people cope effectively with change, stress and trauma. If you find yourself in a stressful or traumatic situation (e.g., loss of a loved one, experiencing sudden life changes, coping with an affair), therapy can help. In our sessions, therapeutic work will be done in a respectful, collaborative manner. I utilize an integrative psychotherapeutic approach with proven methods, through which you will learn skills that will help you to heal and successfully manage the complexities of your life situation. In learning to deal more effectively with the difficulties you are facing, you will feel better and your situation will improve.

If you are reading this, it likely means that you are getting very serious about changing some parts of how you operate. When we're feeling stuck or facing a difficult problem or situation, that's a great time to try something out of the ordinary for us. Therapy can be that. In therapy, I will work with you to help you achieve your best self. To change those parts of yourself that are not perhaps working so well. To have the courage to dream your highest dream, and then let's develop the plan that will take you there. Good therapy is really hard work. I will support you and challenge you to think more clearly about yourself and your life, to take yourself more seriously, and to do those things that allow you to live your best life. I will not encourage you to see yourself as passive - you are the engine that drives your life. Let's engage those parts of you that want to heal, to get better, to feel good, to have better relationships, etc. We will ask, "What brings meaning and purpose to your life?" Then, we will act in ways that promote and support you in living your life in those ways.. I'll help you get very present to what is going on in your mind and life, and then you will be in a better position to face those aspects or yourself and your life that you want to overcome. Collaboratively, supportively, yet firmly, we will work together and you will be supported to embrace the freedoms and choices you have so that you can have ever greater levels of authorship for your life.

More Info About My Practice

Assisting people to cope as well as possible with the stresses, difficulties and traumas of life is at the forefront of my practice. Whether you have lost a loved one, are trying to figure out how to cope after an affair, or are facing other difficult and stressful life situations or transitions, therapy can help.

On a personal note, a very close member of my family died by suicide. That experience informs my outlook on life and my work to this day. From extensive training and personal experience, I know first hand that we can learn to heal and to cope well with adversity

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

Over the years, I have worked in therapy with many bereaved people so that they could learn to cope as well as possible with the death of their loved one. Often, these are sudden and traumatic-type losses, such as from suicide, homicide, the death of a child, etc.

I also quite enjoy helping people to become better than they've ever been in ways that are meaningful to them. In this light, therapeutic work includes sharpening thinking skills, creating and maintaining healthier habits, facing fears more directly, and charting a life path that is meaningful and worth it! I'll certainly support and encourage you to learn from your past, but not to stay stuck in it.

My Role as a Therapist

My role is to assist you to accomplish the goals that you have. Perhaps you want to feel better about yourself, or you're depressed or anxious and want to enjoy life again, or you've got some real problems staring at you and you're not sure what to do. Maybe you've got some big choices to make, and you're not sure what to do. You may be stuck to a pattern that is no longer healthy for you. Perhaps you worry too much, and you'd like not to. Perhaps you'd like to participate in your life in a more mindful, thoughtful manner. I'll help you to get clear on your goals, and then I'll support you and guide your therapy experience so that you can achieve them.
