Psychological Services and Life Coaching...


I have been a Licensed Psychologist in East Texas since 2008. In my clinical practice, I work with patients experiencing a behavioral and/or emotional issues ranging from ADHD, anxiety, and depression, to more serious disorders such as Major Depression, Bipolar Disorder, traumatic brain injury, and PTSD. Some of my patients present with maladaptive personality characteristics that may complicate their relationships with others while others simply need assistance working through separation, divorce, and custody issues. And, in some cases, consultation services may be all that is required to work through issues such as career planning or major life decisions, for example.

Regardless of the purpose for the session, my goal is always to help my patients work through whatever issues they bring to me and to empower them to make choices that will have a positive effect on their lives. I use an eclectic approach but tend to lean towards brief solution-focused therapy when possible. Each approach is tailor-made to suit the individual and his or her concerns.

In addition to traditional therapeutic approaches, I also teach relaxation training and meditation featuring guided visual imagery and focused attention. These techniques are intended to assist with a variety of issues, including stress reduction, self-esteem, PTSD, and mood regulation, for example. It is my belief that the mind has a powerful connection to the body and can effect significant change for the health and well-being of the client when utilized properly.

I also provide court-based services when necessary within the specializations of family law and personal injury cases.

Life Coaching

Life coaching is significantly different than therapy. It focuses on your desired result, beginning right here, in this present moment, and the means by which you get from this "now moment" to your desired goal. During the life coaching process, it is essential that you are committed to aligning what you say and do with the outcome you desire. Often, this requires a shift in perspective and the use of your personal power, as well as resources you may not even realize exist yet. With life coaching, you will explore outside of your comfort zone and will be empowered to embrace the possibilities rather than dwell in limitations. If you desire change, have a specific future in mind, believe that you create your own reality, and are willing to release habits and patterns that no longer serve you, then life coaching may be a great transformational process for you.
