Who I Am

My Private Practice

I am a Licensed Master Social Worker. My experience enables me to offer effective outpatient, individualized, therapeutic care. I treat a number of mental health disorders, and provide a neutral ground for individuals, families, and couples of all ages and backgrounds. I also offer consulting services to organizations who wish to cultivate purpose and strengthen their team environment.  

I am currently under the supervision of Kathy Irwin, LCSW-S; her license, #09836, is currently in good standing with the Texas State Board of Social Work Examiners. 

My Treatment Focus

I believe in the strength and the power of the human spirit. My passion is to empower people to come to a place of healing, accomplish their goals, and fulfill their purpose. I achieve this by providing a safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a treatment plan. We will work together to find solutions to your problems, so you can live out your life's calling. 

My Client Promise

I promise to be there for you every step of your journey. You do not have to go through this alone. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, realize your strengths, and live to your fullest potential. Know there is always hope. Believe in yourself, you can do this!
