I have been a practicing Marriage and Family Therapist since 2004 with a focus on healthy relationships. I am passionate about helping from a systems perspective. Even in individual therapy, my focus is on how relationships have helped form our life narrative and how we can change our lives by changing our thinking about them. These shifts in worldview help us stop participating in our own suffering in conditions we usually cannot change. I consider myself a Brief Narrative Therapist, but focus heavily on Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples as well as Logotherapy (Theory of Meaning) for individuals.
I see clients in Houston, Texas, but also maintain an online coaching practice where I work with individuals around the world. I am a frequent presenter and speaker on a variety of topics around relationships and personal development, including on REAL retreats. I also teach at the University level and host the podcast Unfold REAL. I acknowledge that it can be really difficult to come into therapy or coaching initially and sessions can sometimes be emotionally draining. I make every effort to support clients while offering the professional expertise they need that will allow them to make positive changes in their lives. “My passion is meeting people where they are and helping them grow through self awareness to live happier more fulfilled lives.”
I love food and traveling, and have been married to my husband, Ben since 2000. We have three teenagers who we are pretty excited to launch 😉
