We all face challenging and overwhelming times in our lives. These include realizing we are unhappy with life as it is; concern we’ll never be able to live the life we want in order to be happy; stress; grief and loss; unresolved trauma, as well as other concerns. I use an eclectic, integrated approach to treatment that fits the unique needs of each client. I offer a safe, supportive environment and consider it an honor to work with clients toward achieving the changes they want to make.
I have worked in the mental health field for almost nineteen years, in private practice, hospital and treatment center settings. In addition to individual and couples counseling, I have facilitated trauma resolution groups and co-facilitated weekend trauma intensives.
I am passionate about using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy to help clients heal from trauma, anxiety, phobia and other issues. I am an EMDRIA Approved Consultant and am Certified in EMDR. I have been doing EMDR therapy since 2001. In addition to using EMDR with clients, I help other therapists complete their basic training and become Certified in EMDR. I also work with therapists who want to become EMDRIA Approved Consultants. As a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor in Texas, I enjoy assisting counselors-in-training as they become adept in helping clients and discovering their paths as counselors.
I am dedicated to helping clients heal from past wounds and overcome personal challenges so they are able to live a fulfilling life. I offer weekend appointments in addition to regular weekday office hours. I work with adults and couples in both individual and group counseling.
