My Approach

I believe our emotions move beyond our control when we've experienced traumatic events that cause a build up of unprocessed stuff. That "stuff" comes up and causes us some pretty significant problems - that in processing those memories so they are no longer painful, we have more bandwidth to deal with day to day living and the things that come at us. I have a variety of ways to help you approach these triggers and get relief. This will help you eliminate anxiety, depression, panic attacks and be better able to work with challenging relationships whether at home or work.

My Background

I studied Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Lamar University located in Beaumont Texas. I have also taken training in EMDR - which is a technique that helps process deep painful memories. I've also studied DBT, CBT, IFT and Gottman. Additionally - I've lived life pretty fully and have a wide range of experience to pull from; most recently I spent a year sailing in the Caribbean, but I also have extensive family and trauma experience.
