About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing in Texas. I have been practicing since 1995, most of this time in Community Mental Health Programs. I have worked with many issues of concern to my clients, ranging from serious mental illness to life choices. I have worked with adults, children, adolescents, elderly individuals, couples and groups.

In 2005, I opened my private practice and kept it open full time until 2020. During the pandemic, my clientele reduced due to my choosing to begin telehealth sessions instead of face-to-face sessions. I am residing in a smaller city and most of the population is not comfortable with tele-health so I decided to continue at a reduced capacity as long as possible. In early 2021, I accepted the vaccine in an effort to revive my practice but became ill due to complications. I stopped practicing for approximately 3 months, until I could be sure that I was feeling well enough to provide my clients with the services they deserved. In December 2021, I tested positive with the virus and became very ill. I am now practicing through Better Help rather than begin my solo private practice again.

I am competent in the use of Cognitive-Behavioral, Psychodynamic, Client-Centered, and Transpersonal therapies. I specifically focus on hypnotherapy, meditation, and inner child support in the Transpersonal therapies. Each of these therapies are used based on the treatment plan which is derived from the problems or concerns that the client defines as their choice for treatment and the goal they wish to reach.
In working with couples, the goal is to enhance healing independently and interdependently. I believe that we are attracted to someone who fits like a lock and key with ourselves. This engages our personal issues so that our significant other becomes the rock upon which we break ourselves and then heal through positive communication techniques, compromise and negotiation.

I believe that each person is unique and the path for growth of each person can only be determined by themselves, or jointly, for couples. My role in the support of my clients is to lend them my knowledge, feedback and guidance as they grow through the process of the journey. Each client has the right to self-determination and respect and can refuse any treatment suggestion without fear of consequences.
I am honored to assist you in your choice of becoming the best version of yourself, and, if appropriate, as a union of two creating a separate identity while maintaining each individually.
