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, and elite athletes. Treatment for anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, life transitions, as well as dealing with injury or return to sport are among my specialities.
I have personal background, training, and experience in working with collegiate and elite 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
