I believe in every human's capacity for healing and growth. I work from a holistic (body-mind-spirit) framework.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Houston, TX
Over the years, I have helped hundreds of clients process traumatic experiences and connect with what I refer to as their Core / Well Self. I am highly trained and experienced in various trauma-informed, body-centered approaches to psychotherapy that offer you a gentle pathway for processing trauma and rekindling your full potential.
I have extensive experience working with grief and loss of various types and take a trauma-informed, body-centered holistic approach in the treatment of grief. My experience includes working with complicated grief, disenfranchised grief, and sudden or ambiguous loss or death.
As a trauma and embodiment specialist, dissociative disorders are a special area of interest for me, as well as a particular area of expertise.
I practice from a holistic, integrative (body-mind-spirit) approach that allows all dimensions of your experience to be included in treatment. My approach empowers you to tap into all of your resources and connect with your full potential.
I specialize in various trauma-focused, body-centered approaches, including sensorimotor psychotherapy, somatic experiencing, trauma-sensitive yoga, transformational chairwork, and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR). I have many years of experience working with trauma and, while I recognize how challenging resolving trauma may be, I also know it can be released with with the appropriate approaches and the guidance of an experienced therapist.
As a relational body-centered gestalt therapist, I believe in the power of embodied presence, creative resilience, and the application of here-and-now approaches to counseling/psychotherapy. My approach allows us to get to the heart of how your past may be living in your present and manifesting in ways that may once have been helpful but are currently maladaptive and counterproductive.
I have been working with couples for over a decade and help you and your partner identify both healthy and maladaptive patterns in your relationship, develop proper boundaries, and take an active role in all relational interactions to promote deeper connection with yourself, with others, and with your world. Marriage / Partnership involves a considerable amount of work. My approach helps you establish a foundation for healthy communication and collaborative partnership.
