I am a Marriage and Family Therapist practicing in the Memorial Area of Houston. I see lots of couples but also see individuals and families. I have a very active approach and spend a lot of time coaching and teaching. While listening is extremely important, I know that you are most likely not looking for a therapist who nods in silence and doesn’t provide guidance. I see my role as the navigator. I help you get on the right path, warn you about taking dead end streets and roads to nowhere. When you get off track, I will help you get unstuck and moving in the right direction.
I have written blog posts on the issues I see most frequently in my practice – unresolvable conflict, chronic unhappiness, lack of intimacy, resentment, infidelity. Read one of my posts and it should give you a good sense of my therapeutic style.
I decided I wanted to be a psychotherapist when I was 15. I actually knew before then but didn’t know what to call it until my first psychology class in high school. I majored in psychology at Texas Tech University then immediately went on to grad school. I completed my Master’s degree from Texas A&M – Commerce, which has an outstanding Counseling Department.
I am happily married to a wonderful, though sometimes clueless, man and am raising three awesome kids. I love working with couples on parenting issues, marital issues, teenage angst and all of the issues families face today.
I currently have a waiting list for new clients. If you would like to be seen immediately, please schedule a new appointment with my partner, Courtney Miller. If you would like to be added to my waiting list (average wait is 6 to 8 weeks) please send me an email to be added.
Thanks for reading!
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor – Intern. Much like doctors, counselors have to fulfill a period of residency following the completion of their education, and during this time, we carry the designation of Intern. I completed my Master’s degree in 2006, getting an M.A. in Clinical/Counseling psychology at La Salle University in Philadelphia.
During my years of experience, I have worked in a variety of settings – crisis intervention, community mental health, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and inpatient. I later received post-graduate training preparing me to work with couples. I have studied the major modalities in marriage therapy and have partnered with Gina Watson, LMFT to offer cutting edge couples therapy to our clients. My therapeutic style is pragmatic, active and goal oriented. I help couples heal from resentment, betrayal and marital neglect. I will hold your hand through this process and help you find your way back to your partner.
I am happily married to a loving man, with three great kids. After many years of marriage, I know first hand how hard it can be, and when you add kids, it gets harder. Being a counselor has helped me to successfully navigate the very difficult waters of marriage and children, and it is my deep desire to pass this knowledge on to you.
Please feel free to give me a call or send me an email to discuss your unique situation and to determine if we might be a good fit. I am accepting new clients and have availability now.
