As a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, I consider it an honor to help you navigate the storms of life with an approach that builds confidence, trust and hope using time-proven techniques. My counsel is based on the integration of both my Christian faith and best clinical practices to facilitate your walk to wholeness. My goal is to build with you a trustworthy, empathetic and clarifying relationship, and to rejoice with you in the healing process.

With God’s good help, for over 30 years, I have walked alongside individuals seeking resolution to a wide range of life challenges and psychological issues. I combine sensitivity and compassion with insight and feedback to aid my clients in reaching their goals. I rely on my faith in the Risen Savior, who desires freedom for His people, to inform our time together in session, as we walk through the myriad of life-transforming stressors that have contributed to your seeking help.

As a Trauma-Informed practitioner, I am known for my powerful, direct approach to the solutions my clients seek. Drawing from decades of working with people in a wide range of settings, I integrate a Christ-Centered practice with my clinical training in a variety of treatment modalities, including EMDR. I hold a Masters Degree in Social Work from the University of Houston, and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Board Approved Supervisor in Texas.  God has allowed me to see countless people heal and grow thriving relationships, and it is a privilege I hold very dear.

The work can be challenging, but God is ever-faithful. Our job is to courageously seek help when we need it, and I honor you for reaching out. Below are some of the concerns with which I have helped folks over the years. If you don’t see your issue here, please don’t hesitate to call. If I cannot help you, I will direct you to someone who can.
