About this Service

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas and with over 16 years of professional counseling experience in outpatient, inpatient, community mental health and private practice settings. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns. I have worked with clients in many different stages of life as well.

I provide a safe, non-judgmental environment for you to have the freedom to explore and process your life situation(s) which may be contributing to uncomfortable feelings and behaviors. My desire is to see you overcome obstacles in your life so that you can move forward and improve the quality of life you desire and deserve. It is my desire to listen, understand, and be helpful to you to the fullest extent of my professional ability. Although I use an integrated approach to counseling that includes various theories and techniques tailored to your specific needs; my overall approaches are based on Client Centered, Cognitive Behavioral, and Solution Focused Therapies. My goal is to shape the counseling experience that is unique to you and that meets your needs of healing and change and to collaboratively find solutions to your difficulties. I may at times speak with professional colleagues about our work without asking permission, but all identities will be disguised.

 Clients under 18 do not have full confidentiality from the parents.

 Special note on confidentiality with children and adolescents: Personal information shared by a child during an individual session will be kept confidential unless it involves imminent danger to the child or someone else. Young people will not confide in a counselor if they believe that personal information will be revealed to their parents.

Please Note:

I do not perform home study evaluations, nor do I assist with legal custody issues. Nor do I work with couples. If your problem is a marital or couples related issue, I shall refer you to someone who specializes in these types of issues.

I do not provide or perform psychiatric diagnosis.

I do not provide ESA (Emotional Support Animal) letters

I do not perform fit for duty evaluations or assessments

I do not work with addiction issues

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to share your “best hopes” and to work towards, what I like to refer to as a “preferred future”. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and encourage you.

I look forward to working with you!

Please note that before our first meeting, there is an intake process which I can help walk you through.
