I believe that we have the ability to choose to grow through what we go through, but many times it’s easier said than done. We can get weighed down by things like self-doubt, negative beliefs, irrational fears, self-destructive behaviors, and the like. It is my job to help you push the “pause” button on life, reflect on where you’ve been, and then empower you to take control of where you want to go.
I earned my Bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of North Texas in 2013, and then completed a Master’s degree in marriage and family therapy at Texas Wesleyan University in 2016. I work with adults, adolescents, couples, and families. I have previous experience working with juvenile offenders in a detention center, as well as with a diverse client population in a community counseling setting. In addition, I have facilitated aggression management, relapse prevention, and parenting groups.
My work incorporates both narrative and systemic perspectives. This means that I take into account how life experience, relationships, and societal norms can affect the ways we perceive reality. Sometimes it is the very story lines we tell ourselves that can make us feel stuck, and it is when we begin to find new meaning that change occurs. I have many different techniques to assist you in this process.
I also utilize the structure and components of the Gottman method when working with couples. This method is based on the research of Dr. John Gottman that began in the 1970s and continues into the present. This process includes assessments and interventions designed to help you better understand your relationship while managing conflict and deepening intimacy.
I enjoy being creative in sessions and will work with you to tailor therapy to your needs.
