You’ve taken the first step in improving your overall health and well-being. As a Psychologist, I have worked with hundreds of clients and understand the intricacies of various psychological issues that people face. I have over 12 years experience treating a variety of mental health and transitional life concerns. My goal as your psychologist is to provide you with a safe environment that allows you to explore the areas of your life you feel need attention, and to help you achieve growth in those areas.
My training to become a psychologist was an 8-year-long process with intense psychotherapy and assessment training at Sam Houston State University (where I received my PhD), Baylor College of Medicine where I completed a year-long predoctoral internship, and Scott & White Clinic where I completed a postdoctoral fellowship in an integrated health setting. I am proficient in the use of a variety of evidence-based/empirically supported modalities used to treat and assess mental and behavioral health concerns. Some of these modalities include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Therapeutic Assessment (TA), and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. I work closely with my clients to develop a flexible, dynamic, and collaborative treatment plan. I look forward to helping you reach your emotional health goals.
In addition to my clinical training and experience, I am a speciality trained and experienced Forensic Psychologist. I have been a court-appointed and attorney-hired forensic psychologist in hundreds of cases involving civil liability and civil competencies and misdemeanor and felony offenses (including sexual offenses and capital murder). My training and experience as a forensic psychologist allows me to provide psycho-legal consultation and conduct forensic evaluations within the context of civil (personal injury, civil competencies) and criminal cases.
