Providing services in the Hill Country and San Antonio, TX areas
Our challenges are always asking something of us. Sometimes they lead us to an emotional truth that's been overlooked, disregarded, or forgotten.
They can seem to sap our energy, thwart our goals, ruﬄe, or disorient us. So often, they go hand in hand with symptoms: depression, anxiety, anger, creative blocks, or relationship glitches.
Therapy can help to reinterpret challenges and make sense of what they require of us.

I've joined with many courageous people as they work with challenges related to adolescent and midlife ordeals, aging, problems in love and work, substance abuse, grief and loss, illness, and personal growth.
Everyone goes off course or through troubling times. While you may have navigated some of life's rugged moments by yourself, there's nothing wrong with seeking direction or extra support when you need it.

I work with married and unmarried couples.
Couples therapy focuses on making conflict discussions more functional and constructive. It incorporates research-based interventions that promote effective communication and emotional repair.
Ideally, couples therapy goes beyond surface arguments to explore underlying sources of conﬂict. It also recognizes invisible forces that guide us in our selection of a partner and our conduct in relationship.
Learning relationship-building skills with one's partner can help break through destructive cycles and focus more on growth and healing.
