Practice Information:
Choosing a psychologist can be stressful, confusing, and frightening. Will she be able help us? How long will it take? What do I look for?

My approach to psychotherapy is a collaborative effort where you and I work on mutually agreed upon goals. We work to solve specific problems within a specific time frame. After carefully assessing the present concerns, we explore the problems within the context of family dynamics and medical history. We then identify goals and agree on ways to accomplish them.

This problem-solving, time-limited approach enables you to identify your strengths, focus on the problems, attain your goals, and succeed in your treatment. This process does not have to take forever.

I look forward to working with you.
I am a licensed psychologist, a licensed marriage and family therapist, and a licensed specialist in school psychology in Texas. I have a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology and have been practicing as a psychologist since 2000. I also have a Ph.D. in Special Education, and received specialized training in marriage and family therapy from Southwest Family Institute in Dallas. I was part of the faculty at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, and a Research Scientist at the University of Texas at Dallas.

I offer psychological services across the age spectrum ranging from pre-adolescent children through adults, including senior citizens. I am a highly trained specialist in working with individuals, couples, or families with cultural, generational, or relationship conflicts. I also have experience with the issues surrounding both domestic and foreign adoption.

I welcome the opportunity to work with clients as they face life’s challenges.
