About My Clients

You've tried everything and nothing has worked. You've ignored, distracted, and thought "positively" but you can't get negative thoughts out of your head. You've talked to friends, family, and therapists before. No matter what you do you, that sense of panic, fear, or dread looms over you. Your emotions are "out of control". You've pulled away from the people and things that matter to you in attempts to get your head above water. I'll work with you to get out of your head and back to your life.

My Background and Approach

I received my PhD from the University of Houston, focusing on anxiety and health with an emphasis on clinical practice and research (95+ peer reviewed articles/chapters). I completed postdoctoral fellowships at the Medical University of South Carolina and the University of Pittsburgh. Since then, I have focused the majority of my time in clinical practice due to the immense need. My research background has instilled an emphasis on science and doing treatments that have been shown to work. If you choose to work with me, we will talk but this is not what most people think of when they say "talk therapy". If I ask you "how that makes you feel" it's to better understand what skills/behavioral actions we can explore. I don't want you to be in therapy forever. I want to teach you everything I know and get you to be your own therapist and get back to living. NOTE: I do not accept any insurance at this time. I offer a "superbill" which you may be able to use for potential reimbursement.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that everyone gets stuck from time to time and it's not easy to see the way out. It's not obvious. It's not purely about knowledge either; expert therapists often need help to work through problems in their lives. I don't put much stock in diagnoses and syndromes. Instead, I focus on the suffering that people experience in their lives and what practical actions can be taken to improve quality of life.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
