I look forward to working alongside you to help navigate the challenges that you are facing and to help you explore and uncover any beliefs or patterns that may have kept you safe at one point in time, but are no longer serving you. I am trauma informed and utilize EMDR to help you reprocess your trauma as well as DBT to develop more skillful techniques for living as a survivor of trauma. I am very experienced in working with the LGBTQ, transgender, kink and polyamorous communities. I also have unique personal and professional experience and training in helping others through the grieving and bereavement processes. In addition, I am also an approved clinical supervisor through the Texas State Board of Social Worker Examiners and I am eager to assist others in becoming clinically licensed.
Sixteen years of practicing social work has given me experience working with: survivors of trauma, those who are grieving, people in the Queer/LGBT community, people struggling with gender identity issues or who are in the process of transitioning as well as the polyamorous and kink communities.
One of the hardest parts of counseling is making the initial contact to establish a therapeutic relationship, you have come this far and I know that was not easy, take the next step and contact me to co-create your personalized plan to embark on a more fulfilling life.
I work with adolescents (12+) and adults with a focus on the LGBTQIA+ community. I collaborate with my clients as we work through issues such as Personality Disorders, Mood Disorders, Trauma, Anxiety, and Life Transitions. I also specialize in working with those who have experienced pet loss and grief, have witnessed/been exposed to animal violence, and Veterinary Professionals experiencing Compassion Fatigue and Burnout. I work from a client-centered approach, understanding that each client is the expert in their own experience.
I work from a trauma-informed lens and draw from attachment theories and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I have trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and believe this therapy can be useful for client's of many different backgrounds. Each client is different, and I collaborate with each person to find the therapy that is the best fit.
I strive to create a warm and empathetic space where my clients feel respected and heard. My co-therapist is a golden retriever who is a trained therapy dog. She offers comfort and helps my clients build trust. The relationship between the client and therapist is of utmost importance. I welcome your call to see if I am a good fit for your needs.
