I am a licensed psychologist in the state of Texas. I received my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from The University of Texas at Austin. I completed my formal clinical training at the Dallas Metropolitan Consortium in Psychology, with a specialization in the treatment of anxiety disorders and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. I treat the full spectrum of anxiety disorders and OCD, but take a special interest in perinatal (before and soon after birth) anxiety disorders and OCD and insomnia. My therapeutic style combines a warm, collaborative, interpersonal approach with highly effective cognitive-behavioral and Acceptance and Commitment therapies. I believe that a good working relationship between the client and therapist is an important component of successful treatment.
My Treatment Philosophy
Anyone who has experienced overwhelming anxiety wants to make it stop immediately or “get it off” him or her. Unfortunately, this short-term approach just ends up making anxiety worse in the long run. My goal is to help you work toward long-term, sustainable success in overcoming anxiety. We will change the way anxiety attacks your thinking and behaviors and teach you tools to fight back and feel empowered. I realize that facing fear can be a difficult endeavor but it is my job to guide you and support you in this process. We will identify and work toward your goals together.
