I have over 15 years of clinical experience in various settings including hospital, inpatient, outpatient, and residential treatment centers. I take an integrative, strength-based approach to help clients increase self-awareness, heal and strengthen relationships, support personal growth, and foster resiliency. I have a collaborative, relational style, and believe that a trusting therapeutic relationship is the most essential component of effective therapy. I have extensive training in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and have been intensively trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I have been in private practice for the last 10 years in Texas and Illinois, and my clinical expertise focuses on a wide range of problems including depression, anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), abuse, eating disorders, and personality disorders. I currently provide consultation to other professionals to assist in problem solving and enhancing their clinical skills. I am also licensed in Montana and Hawaii.
