I practice from an integrative perspective, which means that I pull from a variety of theoretical approaches including: emotion-focused, relational, dialectical-behavioral, cognitive, and multicultural. My utilization of an integrative approach helps me individualize treatment based on your unique presenting concerns, and helps me incorporate strategies from frameworks you and I believe will be helpful to you. As a psychologist, I bring certain expertise to our collaboration while you bring self-knowledge, the ability to learn from life experiences, and a vision of what you want your life to be. Sometimes treatment is a process of uncovering these things. Other times, it is a process of working towards them.
Having been a collegiate athlete myself, I enjoy working with athletes. I provide individual therapy and performance counseling services specifically geared toward junior, collegiate, elite, and professional athletes. Treatment for anxiety, depression, relationship/familial concerns, life transitions, as well as dealing with injury/return to sport are among my specialities.
I have personal background, training, and experience in working with collegiate, elite, and professional athletes. In addition to my private practice, I serve as the Director of Mental Health Services for the Southern Methodist University Athletics Department. There I provide individual therapy and consultation services to student-athletes, coaches, administration, and sports medicine staff.
If you are interested in having me consult with your team, organization, or coaching staff, please feel free to
