Finding Trust

Client-Centered

I aim at solving the problems you face in the present using cognitive and behavioral methods that have clear scientific support of their effectiveness and efficiency.

These techniques do not involve extensive exploration of your childhood or unconscious mind, but are instead active, directive, and educative methods.

The philosophy that guides my practice is the unwavering belief that you have a limitless potential to heal and grow, and it is my goal to help you recognize and realize your abilities.

Here you will find a Dallas counseling environment that is client-centered, warm, accepting and encouraging, providing you the opportunity to be creative, intelligent and able to explore personal issues that are sometimes difficult to face. Whether it is anger management, depression, anxiety, or domestic violence, we are here to help you.
Counseling is a reciprocal relationship that promotes empathy, investigation, questions, education and insight.

Please contact me to discuss counseling and the benefits and value it can add to your life. I look forward to exploring this journey to recovery with you!

Counseling Information

Help Is Within Your Reach

The reasons for seeking a therapist vary widely and the decision to participate in counseling is an important one. Having a better understanding of what to expect from counseling can increase your comfort levels.

The beginning stages of counseling focuses on identifying the concerns that led you to counseling and then coming together to decide which services are appropriate. Some active options for dealing with the presenting problem range from educational reading, referrals to workshops, psychiatric consultation, and evaluating cognitive distortions.

I have discovered that many individuals dropout of counseling because they do not feel a connection with the counselor or feel like no progress is being made. We will work as a team to avoid these pitfalls by developing a treatment plan that will be measured every week, testing and therapist connection with the Working Alliance Inventory, and evaluating the impact of each out-of-session assignment.
