My Philosophy...

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Marriage and Family Therapist, and a Certified School Counselor in the state of Texas.  My previous work in schools (both private and public sectors) and churches enrich the client experience.  I look for community support systems and find resources to assist my clients achieve their goals.

I utilize various theories in my practice, depending on my client’s needs.  Cognitive-Behavioral, Solution-Focused, Gestalt, as well as Jungian theory influence and provide structure for our work together.

I use a “family systems” approach in working with families. Each member within the family experiences the family from their own perspective.  Creating tolerance and understanding as well as creating communication skills to express feelings is employed in my work with families.  I employ art therapy techniques, games and other resources to create closer family connections.

In working with couples, I view the couple’s relationship as the “client”.  I work to understand the critical issues, create pathways for better communication and establish equitable and loving bonds between both partners. Researched based approaches such as those from the Gottman Institute are part of my work with couples.  I use bibliotherapy and inventories to help support this work.
