I'm a Texas born, California trained therapist with years of experience spent working as a crisis clinician and treating survivors of sexual abuse. We’ve all experienced struggles, hardships and loss in life and sometimes it takes something more than we possess to cope with and get to the other side with our dignity intact. I employ techniques from positive psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy and many other therapeutic modalities in therapy. I will encourage you to see things from a different perspective, challenge you to change your way of coping, and cheer you on as you follow your own unique path toward healing and growth.
I am certified in industry leading evidence based practices including Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Parent Child Interaction Therapy, and Prepare-Enrich Marriage therapy. In session, I focus on helping individuals overcome past struggles and strengthen relationships in their personal lives and careers. I incorporate family systems work and positive psychology to help individuals and families find hope and reorganize to support one another through difficult times.
I am an avid community advocate for mental health and currently work to promote awareness and provide resources through the Elisa Project, Grant Halliburton’s I Am HERE Coalition, Dallas Regional Chamber’s Young Professionals, Dallas CARE, Dallas TAAP and the Park Cities Rotary Club.
As a therapist my goal is to help you find your joy for life.
