About My Clients

Do you struggle with poor sleep, irritability, poor concentration and chronic anxiety? Are you in a place in your life where you are ready to take the next step in making changes, but have no idea how to go about it? I help people who are ready to make changes in their lives, but recognize that they are hindered by their struggle with social anxiety. I work with my clients towards realizing a more assertive and confident part of themselves.

My Background and Approach

I am a cognitive behavioral therapist with over 16 years practicing therapy and over 9 years in private practice. I have a Masters of Science in Counseling Psychology from Tarleton State University and a Bachelors in Psychology from Warren Wilson College. My therapeutic career started out in a Texas state run residential program for adolescents. I then worked at two other therapeutic programs in Arizona, the latter of which was a private therapeutic boarding school, where I served as an assistant clinical director. In my private practice I work primarily with adolescents and young adults. In working with clients I take a solutions focused approach, with emphasis on helping the client identify core beliefs and values, which are unhealthy and subsequently contribute to the client's struggles. The goal of treatment is to have the client adopt beliefs and values which are healthy, consistent with reality and help the client thrive in his or her daily affairs.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I don't believe I or anyone has to ability to change anyone's mind. When people seek out therapeutic services, on some level they are already going through a transitional process in their mindset and seeking the help of a professional to steer them in the right direction. With this being written, I believe we are our own prisoners and consequently, our own liberators. Regardless of what hardships or traumas we have experienced in our lives at the hands of other people, focusing on how others should treat us, is a waste of time. We have the ability within ourselves to adopt healthy attitudes and mindsets to create the lives we want for ourselves.
