Clinical Psychologist in West Lake Hills, TX

About My Clients

Relationships are vital to our existence, but sometimes we struggle to connect with ourselves and others in a way that supports our values and sustains the relationships that bring love, success, and connection into our lives. Whether you are struggling to connect with a romantic partner, or you've become so debilitated by anxious, self-defeating thoughts that social interaction feels impossible, I believe you have the power within you to change the way you connect to yourself and others.

My Background and Approach

I attended the American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University in Alameda, California, where I earned my Doctor of Clinical Psychology (PsyD) degree in 2014. I have more than 10 years of experiencing in providing therapy services in a variety of settings, and I have discovered my passions lie with sex therapy and pregnancy-related issues, such as loss and birth trauma. I am currently engaged in an intensive training program to become an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist, which involves in-depth sexuality education; exposure to alternative sexualities, behaviors, and relationships; and compassionate awareness of sexual conflict born of sexual misinformation, fears, and insecurities. I was also in active practice as a Registered Nurse (RN) in labor and delivery for 20 years, bringing medical knowledge, awareness, and compassion to my therapy practice. I utilize an individualized approach to therapy, though I was primarily trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Life can bring a variety of challenges, but you are stronger than you think! I can empower you to cope with difficulties in a way that has meaning and value to you, which can improve how you see yourself and lead to improvements in how you relate to others. You absolutely have the right to live your best life, and I want to help you achieve this! As a Clinical Psychologist (and as a Registered Nurse), I operate from an empowerment model. I believe that every individual not only has the right to express their wants, needs, and desires, but they also have the ability! Getting clear about who you are and what you want are the first steps to becoming the person you were meant to be and getting the results you desire. Whether you want to connect more fully with your partner, achieve a lifelong goal, simply get past a difficult life story, or overcome trauma, I can help you to uncover your potential and accept yourself fully. You are a strong, amazing individual!
