MY APPROACH TO HELPING
I am a clinical social worker licensed in Texas with over 8 years' experience working with people experiencing a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, grief, and mood disorders.
My counseling style is pretty laid back. I have been described as warm, caring, and empathetic with, what I've been told is, a pretty good sense of humor. I believe in treating everyone with respect, non-judgmental compassion, and empathy. My approach combines a variety of methods including cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, humanistic, and psychodynamic to tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life through change and prioritizing one's mental health, yet it’s an active step towards fulfilling your healing journey. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
Things can and will get better. I look forward to working with you.
IMPORTANCE OF THE CLIENT-THERAPIST ALLIANCE
I believe the relationship between a client and their therapist is the most important element to achieving lasting change. Your goals are our goals! I like to work on identifying your strengths and helping you to maximize them to overcome your barriers. Each human being has a unique recipe for achievement and happiness. I'm here to help you work on the struggles you are currently facing, and offer you a safe, open, and honest place you can have without any fear of judgment.
