I have been providing psychotherapy and assessment services since I came to the Brazos Valley in the 1980s. I work with adults, couples and families who are struggling with life's many challenges.  Some of my clients are bewildered by the conflicts and stressors in their lives and feel overwhelmed.  Others are suffering from mild psychiatric problems (anxiety, depression, or behavioral health problems) and often find it helpful to work with a psychologist to learn better coping strategies to manage these problems.

There is no universal therapy. I try to shape my therapeutic approach to each individual client's problems, personality, and circumstances.  Consequently I draw on several therapeutic traditions, with an emphasis on scientifically validated treatment techniques. When the situation indicates that a medication consultation may be helpful I will work with your physician to help identify the best response to your symptoms.  Mostly, I believe that people experience improvement from a combination of learning to see their problems in a new way, learning new skills to cope with their problems and, most fundamentally, learning to understand themselves better.
