Detailed Information

My style is calm, attentive, and emotionally-engaged. I listen deeply to your story and help you see patterns you’re not aware of. I value the therapeutic relationship and invite you to let me know about your reactions to our work. I’m serious, direct and often challenging while infusing a sense of play and humor.

I earned a Masters in Counseling Psychology from St. Edwards University and am licensed as an LMFT in the State of Texas (License #202470). I completed an integrative 2-year post-graduate training program through the Middelberg Institute in Austin and am currently a Candidate in Studies in Adult Psychoanalysis at the Center for Psychoanalytic Studies.

My approach to therapy

I’ve always been interested in the darker aspects of human experience. Below the surface we all have experiences of rage, sadness, despair and other unbearable emotions.  Maybe your feelings of shame, self-hatred and anger overwhelm and scare you. You worry that if others knew this about you they’d reject you. The problem with keeping so much deep inside is that you feel alone and like no one can understand. So in our therapy sessions, I welcome all the parts of you: the good, the bad, and the ugly.  Together we can untangle the web of your experiences.

I also believe that we’re all guided by unconscious forces we don’t understand until we start digging around and exploring. So in our work we will start with what’s bothering you and what has brought you to therapy. Current symptoms, such as anxiety, depression, or low self-esteem? Painful and intrusive memories from the past? Difficulty forming or sustaining relationships with others? Unhealthy habits of drinking, overworking, or being  destructive to yourself or others? Or maybe loved ones have let you know you have a personality disorder and you have a sneaking suspicion it’s true.

We will work together to understand why you do what you do. And how you can begin doing something different. I like to see therapy as a journey we undertake together. We will explore the recesses of your mind so you can know yourself better and have the freedom to make different choices in your life.
