I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas. My goal is to help clients move through their current challenges in a meaningful way.
Counselor in Cedar Park, TX
I use CBT to help clients manage a variety of issues including anxious or intrusive thoughts, self-esteem issues, relationship issues, and depression.
I use Exposure and Response Prevention to help clients decrease their time spent on intrusive thoughts and rituals and learn to engage with their triggers in a new way. I primarily use ERP for those struggling with OCD, anxiety, phobias, skin picking or hair pulling.
I trained in ACT during my graduate school internship and have been using the techniques since then. I love incorporating the value-driven approach to help clients move toward what is meaningful to them. I also use this to help clients work on anxious or intrusive thoughts.
I enjoy working with clients in the LGBTQ+ community and those who are exploring their sexual orientations, gender or romantic identities. I strive to provide a knowledgeable and warm approach when working with LGBTQ+ individuals. I also offer letters of support for gender affirmation services upon request.
Anxiety comes in many forms and affects everyone differently. I specialize in working with anxiety in a variety of ways such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy techniques, problem solving, coping skill building, and addressing the mind-body connection. I also enjoy helping clients process past life events that may be causing their current anxiety.
I primarily treat OCD and related issues such as skin picking, hair pulling, and phobias. I completed a year-long internship at McLean Hospital's OCD Institute during my graduate program and have continued to work with clients since then.
