About Me

ABOUT ME

Hello, and welcome to my profile. I am a clinical psychotherapist, licensed as an LPC in Texas. I have been working in the field of mental health, in various capacities for the past 34 years, and in private practice for 27 of those, including currently. I have had many years of trainings, and hold multiple certifications. My work has included, but is not limited to; issues with anxiety, depression, PTSD, trauma, abuse and domestic violence; marriage and family, couples/relationships; custody, LGBQT; gender identity; addictions; terminal issues, death and dying; and many others.

I have been a Christian from childhood, and have participated in many areas of ministry over the years. I have been a professional reference for the clergy, to counsel parishioners, and served as a referral source for the Center Without Borders; to provide professional counseling to clergy. I am a spiritually based believer, and will use scripture as appropriate to the individual and their needs. I look forward to helping increase faith and being able to walk in a more peaceful life.

My general approach to therapy work, is to assess client's presenting issues and assist them to resolution of whatever is causing them the most distress. I use talk therapy, CBT, mindfulness, relaxation techniques and particularly focus on integrative processes. When a Christian counselor has been requested, I especially want to understand client's current belief system and level of spirituality so that I may help them move forward in their faith. The use of scripture, when needed will also be included.
