It can feel scary to open up. Yet, you're here. You're looking for something that can help. The truth is that therapy can also feel freeing, eye-opening, and life changing.

If you find yourself feeling anxious, thinking you are worthless, or weighed down by whatever hurtful label you have been given, therapy may offer a way out.
I'm a licensed psychological associate with experience in individual and group therapy as well as psychological assessment. I have a master's degree in Clinical Psychology from Sam Houston State University. I work with teens and adults struggling with depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, trauma, and life transitions. Additionally, I conduct assessments including IQ, personality, psychopathology, and academic achievement.
My therapy style is not a one-size fits all approach. I 'm well-trained in many forms of therapy and base my treatment approach on your specific issues, personality, and history. My clients consistently say that I am warm, empathetic, genuine, and open-minded.
I'll listen more than I'll talk. I'll give you tools to manage and overcome the fear or pain you are facing. I'll focus on you and help you find your voice. I would love to help you unload the burdens you bear and work together to restore a happy and healthy life.

You may find yourself terrified of food and gaining weight, or you may find yourself unable to control your eating. You could also be somewhere in the middle. It's about the food, but it really isn't. The root of those behaviors is a craving for control, emotional stability, and for something to calm the storm in your mind. Together we will fight back against disordered eating to restore your life.
