What I Do
As a therapist, my role is to help you gain insight into patterns in your life that leave you feeling stuck. I will support you in becoming more capable of overcoming the issues that diminish your satisfaction with life. My goal is to provide an exploration of new ways to approach your experiences. With new insight and tools, I hope to help empower you to create positive change in your life.
My focus is to work with families, couples, and individuals from a Narrative and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy perspective, in an effort to help find healthy ways to overcome difficulties and gain greater satisfaction in life. I am also trained in directive and non-directive play therapy and Eye Motion Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
In addition, I am passionate about serving the next generation of mental health providers as well as my colleagues through training and education. I have served as an adjunct professor at Texas Wesleyan University, Texas Woman's University and Capella University in their graduate counseling and marriage and family therapy programs. I also currently offer supervision to partially licensed clinicians as well as training to mental health providers and the community.
