All people who turn to counseling begin their journey for different reasons and are searching for different answers. I believe this time can be filled with a variety of overwhelming emotions. I take it as my personal responsibility to ensure relief and comfort for my clients during this experience.
Counseling has an amazing healing power to ease one's mind even after just one session. I see a variety of clients for individual work, couple's counseling, and family counseling. There are many different types of counseling and the therapeutic process varies for each individual. If you have any questions about the services I provide please feel free to contact me for a telephone consultation.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I have the privilege of working beside children, adolescents, and adults in difficult and often confusing times in their lives. My mission is to provide care and clarity for my clients while honoring values in a way that strengthens and improves their relationship with themselves and others.
I have a Bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M in Psychology and Sociology and a Master’s of Arts in Counseling from St. Edward’s University. I completed my Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision at The University of Texas at San Antonio researching counseling competencies in working with the geriatric population. I see clients at my private practice and also make home visits to geriatric clients in long-term care facilities.
The people I work with come from differing backgrounds and are facing a variety of difficulties in life. I specialize in working with adolescents and college aged students who are struggling with anxiety and diminished confidence issues that often arise during this time. I also focus my treatment on couples who are working towards strengthening their relationship. I am extremely passionate about working with the elderly and ensuring ethical treatment is provided to this dismissed population.
I am a Board Approved Supervisor for Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist-Associates. Please feel free to contact me if you are in need of a supervisor and are interested in learning more about my approach to supervision.
