Depression, anxiety, and relationship dysfunction can stifle and hide who you really are. You feel inhibited, pressured, and isolated, but throughout it all you know there is still something amazing within you. What’s stopping you from being yourself both alone and around others? What stops you from knowing how to take care of yourself? This is what I can explore with you. I want to help you shed what is holding you back and illuminate pain that may be keeping you comfortably stagnant. I want the world to meet who you are.
Authenticity may be the most important quality in any human interaction. Given warmth, understanding, and space to grow, you are able to become more truly yourself. The essence of therapy is a nonjudgmental connection to another human being in a uniquely vulnerable form, and this is what I strive to provide.
I've received a B.A. In Psychology from Texas State University, an M.A. In Counseling from ST. Edward's University, and am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate. I have in-depth experience with clients of many different ages, orientations, and cultural backgrounds and I’m able to view the human mind on both an individual and group (systemic) level. I understand anxiety and depression as deep-seated problems, but problems that can be combatted through self-exploration and commitment.
As a therapist, I place special emphasis on unconscious content, especially as it occurs in the here-and-now of the therapeutic encounter. This may come through exploration of dreams, fantasies, beliefs, or forms of artistic expression.
Through a humanistic lens, the client is not only there to be treated for a problem, but to achieve fuller self-expression and mental health, living life as self-actualized as they can be. Whether this process is done with an individual, couple, or family, it is an everlasting chance to build a healthier and more fulfilled life.
