About

As a licensed psychologist, I provide psychological services for adults and couples. With over 20 years of clinical practice, I have helped people with a wide range of life problems and relationship concerns. My mission as a psychologist is to help you love well and live well!

My clinical specialty is couples therapy. I am a Certified Gottman Therapist and have completed advanced clinical training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy. I also have received clinical training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. I love helping couples repair, restore, and renew their relationships. We all desire a secure loving bond with our partner, and I am honored to work with couples of all cultures, backgrounds, and expressions of love.

My clients describe my clinical style as authentic, affirming, and compassionate. My highest priority is to create a safe and supportive space for you to be yourself. I will be fully present with you without judging you, making you feel inadequate, trying to fix you, or telling you how to live your life. I use evidence-based psychological therapies that include emotion-focused and cognitive-behavioral interventions, mindfulness and acceptance practices, and relational and interpersonal orientations. We will work together to develop a personalized treatment plan to help you reach those goals that are important and meaningful to you.

I received my PhD in Counseling Psychology from Texas A&M University. I completed a Predoctoral Residency in Clinical Psychology at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Behavioral Medicine at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston, and a Senior Fellowship in Behavioral Medicine at the University of Rochester Medical School.

If you are interested in couples or individual therapy, please feel free to contact me through this site. I look forward to hearing from you!
