Message to clients

Change can occur at any time – it is never “too late.” Have you been to a therapist(s) and cannot seem to advance positively in your mental health? Are you struggling with finding your way? Have you found previous sessions in therapy have not been productive? Maybe the therapist did not understand your needs and goals, the therapist spoke too much about themselves, or, regularly cancelled sessions? I empathize with you. My promise is dedication, building a strong, positive and productive therapeutic alliance. I am truly honored clients have expressed they begin to feel a weight has been lifted and are motivated for change within a few sessions. Using evidence-based treatment methods including cognitive-behavioral therapy, inner child, psychodynamic therapy, motivational interviewing, solution-focused brief therapy, exposure and response prevention, among others, a tailored plan to meet your therapeutic goals will be created with a focus on taking meaningful steps forward. I recognize the uniqueness of each client, and offer you an inviting, non-judgmental, and comfortable environment, from a bright and cozy office in West Lake Hills (complete with snacks, coffee, water and tea), to a quiet, private telehealth experience, and therapeutic walk and talk sessions – I am here for YOU every step of the way. You have taken the first step by diligently researching, please do not hesitate to contact with additional questions and a free phone consultation. “You live most of your life instead your head, make it a nice place to be.”
