My Approach

In terms of locating my theoretical orientation in the context of the field, it can be thought of as an eclectic toolbox in the psychotherapy integration movement. My toolbox hosts many theoretical approaches to aide the client in achieving the wellness sought. My skills are grounded in a unified approach to the science of psychology that assimilates and integrates key insights from the major approaches (e.g., Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused, Gestalt, Trauma Informed ) into a more coherent whole .

My frame provides the lens by which I listen to and organize the narratives and presenting problems of my clients. It further orients me to attend to particular themes and issues, which in turn lead me to hypothesize about particular developmental etiological pathways and guide me to consider potential treatment goals and desired outcomes that will come to frame the work as it progresses.

About me

What do you need to know about me? Well, I think when we meet you will find I am very easy to talk to, and very "down-to-earth." I know how hard it can be to come in and talk to a complete stranger about personal issues. But I think you will find that when you do, you'll find I can often help you to look at your matter in a new way.


I have a PhD and Master degree. I am licensed in the state of Texas to independently practice. I have over 6 years experience as a therapist, I provide support and practical feedback to help you effectively address the challenges you are facing in your life. With compassion and understanding, I work with you to help you build on your strengths and attain the personal growth you are committed to accomplishing. Much of my job is to ask you questions you may not have asked yourself, to help you think about yourself and your problems in a new way, so that you can get "unstuck."
