About

We all need help sometimes.

I specialize in individual psychotherapy for adults (age 18+) and couples work (marital therapy or premarital counseling). In our work together, we will collaborate toward healing and growth — tracking down and facing painful obstacles, 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 re-connect to yourself and to deeply connect with your loved ones. I'd like to help you move toward an expanded you, greater flexibility, bigger possibilities. I want to help you get unstuck and stop struggling with the bitter and painful places in your life — anxiety, fear, stress, anger, loneliness, 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. SCHEDULE INITIAL APPOINTMENT If you're interested in a preliminary consultation (15-minute video call, no charge) OR if you have any questions about services offered, scheduling, fees, insurance, etc., please send me a message via the "contact" option (the envelope icon) at the very top of this page. I will do my best to respond within 24 hours. INSURANCE For individuals, I am currently in network for Aetna and 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 if you have one. Also, I can provide you with the documentation to file an out-of-network claim if you like.
