Because you're feeling overwhelmed with the constant demands of life. You want and need help finding a better way to deal with it all. You're struggling with your family, career and relationships. You've read the books, watched the videos, talked to friends & family and nothing works. Nothing makes it better for the long run.
Your household is under constant stress and chaos and you sometimes wonder, "what if I take the next plane to the beach or mountains and leave everything behind?" Your child is struggling at school, is often having meltdowns, argues back, pushes boundaries, yells, screams and cries and you don't know how else to help him or her.
Let me tell you, there's hope! You don't have to settle for living like this. I can help you set small goals during our therapeutic process and healing journey that will lead you to a better way of life. With hard work and dedication, positive change is possible. I've seen many adults, teens and children reach a healthier way of interacting with each other in a peaceful and respectful manner. Please reach out so we can discuss how I can help you reach your goals.

Frequently Asked Questions
Psychotherapy, counseling, therapy, coaching what's the difference?
The answer is a Mental Health License. In the state of Texas, one must have a Master's degree from an accredited University, pass the National Counselor Examination and complete 3,000 supervised hours in order to be licensed to practice psychotherapy or counseling. Coaching is just a certification. A Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Psychologist have completed all the requirements necessary to stand alone and provide mental health therapy, counseling and/or psychotherapy. A LPC-Associate, LMFT-Associate and LMSW (licensed master social worker) are associates/interns with a provisional license under supervision to complete the requirements for a stand alone license.
How can I book an intake session?
Book the first session by contacting us by email. Then, we will coordinate and schedule our first intake session. During our intake session, we will discuss your symptoms and converse to agree if I'm the right fit for you. It is very important that you find the right therapist that "clicks" with you. I hope I'm the right person for you. If I'm not, I'll be more than happy to refer you to many of my trusted colleagues who might have more expertise on your area of need.
If I'm the right fit, we will continue to cover HIPAA, confidentiality and counseling procedures. We'll also discuss the intake forms that you signed through our EHR platform. Once you're a client, you can book future sessions, send secure messages and manage your payments online on a HIPAA secure management system.
What are your fees?
You can reach out by email to schedule an intake session which will be a first initial assessment. Here, we will set our goals and objectives so we can measure how therapy progress is going. The intake session will last between 50-60 minutes and the cost is $200.00. After that, follow up individual sessions will last an average of 50 minutes and the cost is $175. Limited sliding fees are available on a case by case if the client qualifies depending on economic need.
Please check the Book Online link at the top of this page for information regarding services and fees.
Do you take insurance?
I am In Network with Aetna. However, all insurance clients are being accepted using Headway. They will verify benefits, submit claims and collect payments. Please reach out and I will send you their link.
If you chose to opt out of insurance of have a different insurance provider, I can provide you with an Out of Network "Superbill" for you to submit to your insurance for reimbursement or to count towards your deductible.
Please be aware that when people use your health insurance, a qualifying mental health diagnosis needs to be reported to the insurance company for them to cover the sessions. This confidential information becomes part of the client's permanent medical record. Also, some insurance companies determine the number of sessions and type of services covered.
