My Approach to Helping
Greetings! I have been licensed in California since 2009 and am currently licensed in six states and am listed here in Texas. I have 39 years of experience, providing administrative, clinical, supervisory, managerial and consulting services in clinical community mental health settings including psychiatric residential treatment facilities for children and adolescents, juvenile sex offenders and victims, outpatient clinical services including forensic mental health services for registered sex offenders and have been a Director of Behavioral Health before building my private practice.
I specialize in adjustment diagnoses, bereavement, critical incident stress management, posttraumatic stress, intermittent explosiveness, psychosis, schizophrenia, personality diagnoses, homicidalsuicidal ideation, crisis intervention, psychiatric rehabilitation, certified treatment for registered sex offenders, victimoffender mediation, clients’ rights advocacy, client-centered psychotherapy, family systems psychotherapy, cognitive psychotherapy, existential psychotherapy, transpersonal psychotherapy, thanatology and ethics.
As I meet with each and every client on the spectrum of needs, I am able to transcend statistical assumptions and am most interested in respecting each and every client's subjective experience.
If you are seeking a therapist who is able to value your subjective experience as an individual, I look forward to working with you to address your specific concerns.
What are your goals?
