About My Clients

My ideal clients are working professionals that struggle to build their ideal lives. They struggle with anxiety, depression, anger, and trauma, which manifests in poor communication, troubled relationships, overwhelming addictions, and PTSD. They have busy schedules and are open to new technologies such as telehealth or online therapy.

My Background and Approach

I have successfully worked with clients on a wide range of issues, including relationship communication and intimacy, anxiety and depression, gender and sexual identity and transition, addiction and recovery, and physical/sexual/emotional trauma and PTSD. I have worked in both private-practice and substance-abuse treatment settings. I am LGBTIQ, poly, and kink friendly and knowledgeable.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Sharing and being vulnerable with another human being takes courage. I honor that courage by partnering with you to hear your story, create new narratives about your life experiences, teach you skills for dealing with overwhelming thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and help you discover communication tools that can enhance and strengthen your relationships. On a more personal note: I have been a member of the local kink and poly communities since 2005. I assist Knights of the Grail, a non profit charity serving veterans with equine therapy and knightly skills training, with psychological assessments. I am also an actor out at Sherwood Forest Faire, an annual medieval festival in McDade, Texas; I've play a blacksmith, a prince, a bishop, and most recently the most famous knight in history.
