Clinical Psychologist in Dallas, TX
I firmly believe that my clients already come into my office with a substantial amount of expertise and strength. Hence, I use a solution-focused approach to guide my clients to better identify and access their own resilience.
I integrate various other modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), mindfulness, and body-based therapies, such as Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TSY) in supporting my clients to heal and re-discover their innate resilience and strengths.
Even if you are coming for individual or couples therapy, I believe that it is important to understand how your upbringing and family environment affects you now. My belief is that we can understand and, therefore, change the present moment when we understand its connection to our past beliefs and habits.
I have a passion for working with those from diverse and intersecting ethnic, racial, cultural, and identity backgrounds and utilize a strengths-based lens in clinical work. As a member of the 2019-2020 Racial Equity Now (RENow) cohort of the nonprofit Dallas Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation (Dallas TRHT), I am also steeped in local and national efforts to support equity.
I have experience working with couples at all relationship stages. I holds certification in Gottman Level I and II couples therapy. The focus of couples sessions with me is increasing insight and empathy between partners as well as on developing day-to-day communication skills and healthy relationship habits.
I am passionate about supporting those with trauma histories to re-discover their innate resilience. I have experience working with those who have experienced abuse, neglect, violence, and other traumatic events, often intertwined with contextual and societal factors such as racism and poverty. I integrate traditional talk therapy with body-based modalities and education to empower my clients.
