As a therapist, I will provide you with a protected space for you to share your truth. Your experiences will be seen and heard with warmth and understanding, and you will not be judged for deciding to work on yourself.
I tend to work from a holistic, humanistic approach in which I provide support that looks at you as a whole rather than merely parts of yourself or concerns. I often integrate techniques from multiple theoretical approaches to suit your personal concerns. I'm not in the business of giving advice or directives, but I am, however, in the business of helping you learn more about yourself and experiences while providing insight, which will in turn help you develop skills to handle major events as well as everyday life challenges.
Understanding ourselves may be hard at times, especially when we can't find the right words. Between working with military families at the Chaplain Center and working with men and women in the Texas prison system, I’ve had the privilege of working with many diverse clients and opportunities to think outside the box.
To help with this, I offer different modes of expression that may help you explore experiences without even using words. No matter which you prefer, I work to keep you mindfully present while we address unfinished business, plan for the future, and find a way for you to really live your life today.

People are capable of anything, including you being capable of greatness. You may not know it, but you are your biggest strength and therapy is ran with you in mind. You're human with real emotions, relationships, and experiences, and you are the expert in your own life.
The goal of therapy is never to change you because there’s nothing wrong with you. The goal is to help you increase your mindfulness, shine light on the control we often miss, and increase the likely for you to challenge any life blocks while connecting to every part of yourself.
You are capable of healing. And when you're ready, I'll be ready to walk right next to you down the path of self-compassion, self-acceptance, and self-love.
