I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Board Approved Supervisor with experience in individual and couples therapy. I also have specialized training in treating sexual issues. 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.
My main areas of interest in private practice include relationships, sexual issues, life transitions, and the LGBTQ+ community. 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 including Sex Therapy, Narrative, Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic, Gottman Methods, and Emotionally Focused Therapy among others. No two individuals are the same, and so I work from many theoretical standpoints to find what is most helpful to you.
