I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Board Approved Supervisor with experience in individual, couples, and alternate relationships therapy. I also have specialized training in treating sexual issues of all kinds – most commonly low desire, decreased sexual functioning, and sexual pain. My specific passion is helping folks sort through questions about identity and orientation.
I earned an MSSW from the University of Texas at Austin and have worked with clients of all ages. I have extensive experience in both inpatient and outpatient psychiatric hospital programs, helping clients who are struggling with mental health, personality disorders, and substance abuse. My tenure in psychiatric hospitals also included working as a court liaison for patients under involuntary commitments. I am most passionate about working with clients in private practice, where we can address ongoing struggles in a collaborative style.
I focus on the client’s goals because I believe that each person has ownership over their own needs. I work from various therapeutic perspectives because no two individuals are the same. I pull from multiple theoretical standpoints to find what is most helpful to you.
In addition, my toy poodle, Truett, often comes to the office to snooze the workday away!
