As a licensed psychologist, the most important value I hold for my practice is to create a safe and secure space where you are able to share and explore your story. I believe this is achieved through a strong therapeutic relationship that emphasizes authenticity, honesty, and acceptance. In all aspects of my practice, I utilize research-based treatment methods that involve an interpersonal approach with cognitive-behavioral interventions, a family systems perspective, and the Gottman Method. I believe that growth occurs when we are able to openly and honestly share our experience with another person, learn new skills, and better manage relationships.
I strongly believe in the Gottman Method. In my opinion, it is the best method for helping you as a couple develop the healthy relationship you dream of sharing. Through this work, we are able to strengthen the friendship between you and your partner, which is the foundation for intimacy, healthy management of conflict, shared meaning, and, together, making dreams come true.
In my clinical practice, I specialize in therapy and testing services with people of all ages. I treat many areas of concern, including: developing compassion for self and others, anxiety and mood concerns, identity development, family and peer relationships, disruptive mood and behaviors, parent training, as well as psychological and psychoeducational testing.
I received a doctoral degree (Ph.D.) from the APA-accredited Counseling Psychology program at the University of Houston in Houston, Texas. Previously, I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Texas A&M University and a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from West Chester University of Pennsylvania. I completed an APA -accredited pre-doctoral internship at Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District in Houston, Texas. Throughout my professional career, I have worked in Louisiana, Northern Virginia, and Texas.
