I’ve been on my own journey, and I know that change is hard. Along with individual struggles, we’re all wrapped up in larger systems and circumstances. Therapy can help you identify all the different obstacles in your path. Therapy can also help you tap into resources that nurture your capacity to heal, grow, and BE on your terms. I started as a therapist in Houston in 2009  and I'm passionate about supporting clients facing impacts of trauma, anxiety, depression, adult ADHD and the struggles of everyday life. I can help you sort through it all and face whatever is standing in your way with gentleness rather than judgment. Improved well-being, deeper connections, more satisfaction—these are within reach.

My approach to therapy is primarily client-centered. I seek to validate and honor your unique experiences from your perspective, and to tap into that self-knowledge as our guiding source for the direction of therapy.  Drawing on EMDR, mindfulness, body awareness, and self-compassion practices, we’ll tailor our sessions to meet your needs. We’ll focus on developing trust and connection first, so you can activate your strengths and build resiliency and purpose at the level of mind, body, and community. Over time we will fine-tune the approach through therapist-client collaboration. I also value ongoing professional development as a source to expand my offerings in our work together.
