About My Clients

Do you sometimes wonder if everyone else has a secret "life manual" that you're missing? Perhaps you are stuck in a cycle of sometimes pushing yourself and achieving at a high level, but other times, not being able to get up off of the couch. I know this feeling of constant anxiety, not knowing what it means to truly live well, not knowing if it's even possible. I believe it IS possible, and I look forward to walking alongside you and teaching you tools and skills to live a life on your terms.

My Background and Approach

My training and experience is centered around folks who are in some sort of transition, either within themselves or their environment. Educational, professional, relationship, or other transitions are a great time to reevaluate our goals and direction. I tailor my work to each client and their needs and use a variety of treatment methodologies, one of which is Radically Open-Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO-DBT). RO-DBT may be helpful for you if you struggle with perfectionism, rigidity, difficulty in social relationships, or social isolation. Visit for more info on RO-DBT. I am honored each time I connect with a client and they share their most precious stories with me. To me, it is so important to find a therapist who you feel like is a good fit for you and understands you. This can sometimes be quite the task. It would be such a privilege to talk and find out if I can be helpful to you. I offer free 15 minute phone consultations to see if we'd be a good fit.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I'm a high achieving recovering perfectionist and people pleaser. I specialize in helping others who feel stuck in a cycle of chasing the next accomplishment and never feeling satisfied. I believe strongly that we don't stop growing once we reach adulthood. I consider myself a lifelong learner and love working with clients that are eager to discover more about themselves and the world around them. I'm an introvert, Houstonian, proud rescue parent of Zoe the dog and Buddy the cat, and an avid consumer of books and TV. I believe we're living in the golden age of content and often find myself exchanging Netflix recommendations with my clients. I love Houston for many reasons, but a big one is my love for good food. I'd love to talk with you and find out how I can be helpful to you. Reach out today!
