We all need help sometimes.
Are you feeling stuck, alienated, disconnected, isolated?
I hear you. These are the difficulties of being human.
I specialize in working with adult individuals (18+) and couples.
In our work together, we will collaborate toward healing and growth - getting your life in line with your deepest values and desires, discovering the full, rich, and meaningful life for which you have been longing.
I want to help you to re-connect to yourself and to deeply connect to your loved ones. I want to help you move toward an expanded self, toward greater psychological flexibility. I want to help you to stop struggling with the bitter and painful places in your life — anxiety/stress, fear, hurt, anger, loneliness, confusion, grief, loss, sorrow.
I have a compassionate manner and a positive, nonjudgmental attitude. I seek to provide a safe, collaborative, nonpathologizing environment for new life possibilities to emerge. I’d love to meet you and walk with you on your journey of change. We'll collaborate to discover, create, move toward a life filled with meaning and purpose. Claim the life you choose for yourself, your preferred life, the life you really want.
I can meet with you in my office, located in North Dallas at Spring Valley/Dallas N. Tollway. I can also work with you online, through private video, if you're anywhere in Texas. I hold master’s degrees in business, family studies, family therapy, and I’m working on my doctoral dissertation in depth psychology (PhD coursework completed). I'm highly trained in emotionally focused therapy (EFT for couples, EFIT for individuals), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), psychodynamic therapy (relational, depth-oriented), as well as other experiential and systems-based models.
INSURANCE: For individuals, I am currently in network for United Health Care (UHC, Optum, Oxford, Oscar). I do not accept insurance for couples therapy sessions, but feel free to use your FSA/HSA card. Also, I can provide you with the documentation to file an out-of-network claim if you like.
OTHER QUESTIONS? If you have any questions about scheduling, fees, insurance, etc., please feel free to reach out to me via the "contact" option (the envelope icon) at the top of this page. I will respond within 24 hours.
