INDIVIDUALS

Individual counseling provides an opportunity for you to openly talk about your thoughts and feelings in a safe environment. Together, we can discuss your issues or concerns with:

  • Parenting 

  • Relationships

  • Play therapy, for children

  • Self-development

  • Anxiety and depression

  • Stress Management

  • Substance abuse and dependence

  • Loss and grief counseling

  • Career changes 

 

 

FAMILIES

Family dynamics can often be challenging, whether you have a traditional or non-traditional family. Family counseling provides an opportunity for everyone to openly talk about their thoughts and feelings in a safe environment. Together, we can try to solve any familial issues:

  • Parent-child conflicts

  • Stepparent/Blended Family issues

  • Family communication problems

  • Defiant, angry, or isolated teens

  • Grief and loss issues

  • Transitions after divorce or separation

 

 

 

 

COUPLES

Couples counseling is beneficial to those interested in improving their relationships. I have experience working with a diverse range of couples from various racial, ethnic, and spiritual backgrounds. Couples can be married or dating, straight or gay. I can assist couples with:

  • Communication

  • Financial disagreements

  • Infidelity

  • Trust issues

  • Fighting/ongoing arguments

 

 

Court-related counseling services:

 

  • Co-parenting counseling

  • Guardian ad litem services

  • Social Studies

  • Adoption Studies

  • Training & consultation for court-related counseling services - for other mental health professionals

  • For court-related counseling, I follow the Association of Family and Conciliation Court's guidelines for court-involved counselors. Please note that under these guidelines I cannot provide custody and access recommendations as a child's counselor.

    For social study and guardian ad litem services, I follow the Association for Family and Conciliation Court's guidelines for custody evaluations. I also follow the rules and guidelines of the Texas Family Code for social studies.

Issues that I specialize in are: 
 

DEPRESSION

Children, teenagers and adults who struggle with depression often feel down for extended periods. They lose interest in activities that they once found pleasurable, and often have changes in eating and sleeping patterns. Some people may feel irritable and feel a loss of energy. Depression negatively affects millions of Americans each year.

 

 

ANXIETY AND STRESS

Stress and anxiety are related, but often confused. Stress is tension associated with a specific event (e.g. a test or a job), while anxiety is a non-specific worry about the future. To find relief, people with anxiety may turn to repetitive routines, preoccupations, or addictions. Treatments I focus on include meditation and breath work, yoga and exercise and mindfulness-based stress reduction techniques.

 

FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS

Feeling understood and understanding one's partner, parent or loved one is what allows family members to deepen their relationships, reduce conflict, and understand one another's lives more thoroughly. I have a specialized interest in working with blended families and stepparent-parent, and stepparent-stepchild relationships.

SELF-ESTEEM

Self-esteem is a feeling of personal worth. It is important to be able to value yourself regardless of your current state of personal achievement, beauty, or intelligence. Your self-esteem creates the foundation for a full life, great relationships, and a feeling of well-being.
