Addictions, Adolescents and Eating Disorders

“Let go of aiming for perfection-it’s much more satisfying and fulfilling to be human.” Russ Harris, The Happiness Trap

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor. I have been passionate about serving those in need for the past decade and have enjoyed being able to do so professionally for the past three years.

I earned my bachelor’s degree in Psychology at Texas Woman’s University and went on to pursue and earn my master’s degree in Clinical Psychology at the University of Houston-Clear Lake. In my graduate studies, I was able to train in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, ACT, as well as, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, DBT, and utilize it in my therapeutic work.

Since the start of my career, I had the privilege of working with those who struggle with eating disorders and substance use and found my true passion. More specifically, this work was done at the intermediate levels of care in treatment centers. I was able to work with individuals in group, individual, and family sessions. Being able to help those who are facing the crossroad of continuing down the same unfulfilling path or choosing the narrow, and less traveled path to recovery is something I find challenging and rewarding. In my experience, even those who think they are ready for recovery find the journey to be more difficult than they first imagined. I am open and willing to support you as consider and pursue this journey.

In our work together, I will utilize the compassionate and thought-provoking therapeutic approach of ACT, as well as, the concrete and applicable skills that DBT offers. Our work will be stimulating, change-making, and rewarding.

I look forward to meeting and supporting you.
