Psychotherapy turns the gaze inward. By helping us gain awareness about how our inner world functions, it can free us to respond, rather than react to life's difficulties. 

I am experienced in the integration of the mind/body and walking alongside people who feel overcome by difficult emotions. With almost two decades of clinical experience, my commitment is to help people fully inhabit their bodies and lives in a meaningful manner.  



For one human being to love another: that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks… the work for which all other work is but preparation.
— Rainer Maria Rilke


About Me

I completed my graduate studies in 2000 and received my advanced licensure with recognition as clinical supervisor in 2004. I have held senior clinical positions in various inpatient and outpatient mental health settings such as the Children's Assessment Center, the Council on Recovery, and the University of Pittsburgh's Intensive Outpatient OCD program.  Most recently, I worked for several years at the Menninger Clinic in Houston, Texas.  

My areas of expertise include trauma, personality disorders, and dual diagnosis- people who struggle with addiction and mood disorders and/or anxiety.  I am grounded in the psychodynamic framework, which explores how thoughts and feelings outside our conscious awareness impact our lives.  I place emphasis on attachment and the quality of the relationship that we build together.  

Clinical interests include working with integration of the mind/body,  and working with young professionals and young adults with difficulties in launching into adulthood. I also provide Psychotherapy in Spanish.



I am experienced in mindfulness-based interventions such as ACT, self-compassion and DBT, as well as exposure therapy for OCD. I also provide psychoanalysis, and have completed post graduate training in psychodynamic psychotherapy. I am currently in advanced training for psychoanalysis at the Center for Psychoanalytic Studies in Houston.  My approach is integrative and tailored to each person's needs.

I hold accreditation as a Certified Group Psychotherapist and serve on the board of the Houston Group Psychotherapy Society. Contributing to the training of future clinicians as a clinical supervisor and adjunct faculty at the University of Houston's Graduate School of Social Work is another facet of my practice.

I am a certified yoga instructor and founded THRIVE, a Trauma-Informed yoga program which offers yoga classes, trainings and consultation services for yoga teachers and clinicians.  My intent is to help people establish a trusting relationship with their bodies.
