As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), I work with individuals and couples facing challenges in their relationships, parenting roles, professional lives, or spiritual quest. I offer individuals and couples counseling sessions for West Texas and Eastern New Mexico residents. My clinical specialty is in use of Mindfulness-based methods and Clinical Hypnosis to help my clients not only become symptom-free but also to attain their highest potential with regard to their relational or individual goals. I use Systems perspective in my therapy work and take into account my clients' full spectrum of life: including their physical, psychological, emotional, social and spiritual health. 

If you are interested in my services, I encourage you to review my website to learn about my clinical approach and experience, office hours, fee and scheduling. Should you decide to work with me, you can contact me via email or telephone. You are also welcome to reach me if you wish to set a 30-min consultation (at no charge) to explore whether I can be a good therapeutic fit for you, or if you have general questions about therapy techniques of mindfulness and hypnosis. Many of my potential clients find that a brief conversation prior to entering therapy helps them identify specific areas in which psychotherapy can help them, or it helps them learn more about me as a therapist. Either way, I look forward to hearing from you ..
