I am a psychotherapist with many years of experience. I specialize in working with adults with Complex PTSD.

Traumatic experiences, especially those that involve close relationships, can have a profound effect on our well-being. If you are a Texas resident experiencing anxiety, depression, or trauma reactions, I am available for online sessions. I believe that you can heal from trauma, and I have seen it happen again and again. I will collaborate with you to develop a plan that focuses on your strengths and takes into consideration your experiences, needs, and values. Therapy is a lot of work, but I think you will find it is worth it!

I have extensive experience working with survivors of trauma in agencies, schools, family violence shelters, and substance abuse programs. I have training in various modalities, including CBT, solution-focused therapy, narrative therapy, and EMDR. The approach we take will depend on the direction you want to go.

I am available for online therapy, and I have afternoon, evening, and Saturday openings. My clients enjoy the convenience of online sessions. There's no driving and looking for a parking space, and they can relax in their own homes. I do not accept insurance, but I do offer a sliding fee scale if needed.

When not working, I enjoy hiking, reading, dancing, and writing. I love all animals; currently I am a cat parent.
