Who's the right fit for you?

I get it. Choosing a therapist sucks. There are so many therapists out there and you have to find the right one for you. It’s scary. Where do you start?

Do you just look for a therapist near you? There are plenty of therapists in Carrollton or Dallas so that doesn’t narrow it down much.

What if you find one near you, but they don’t have a website? How can you find out more about who they really are? Are you really just supposed to cold-call a phone number with no other information?

What if they have a website, but it’s just the same old platitudes? “This is a safe, nonjudgmental space.” “Life can be hard. Let me help you with your journey.” Not super helpful.

My goal with this website is to tell you about me, my specialties, my personality and my services. I want to make it easier for you to know if I might be the right therapist for you.

The Basics

– I see adults and older teens in virtual appointments or local (Dallas, Carrollton areas) walk-&-talk appointments.


– Everyone is welcome regardless of gender, orientation, ethnicity, religious or non-religious background. 


– I have personal experience with religious deconstruction / religious trauma. If you are currently deconstructing your faith, I want to help you walk through that process. Deconstruction can be full of anxiety, fear, grief, loneliness and confusion.

– I know what it’s like to live life on “hard-mode.” I have personal experience with anxiety, depression, OCD and adult-ADHD. I am also a Certified Anxiety-Informed Professional, which means I have extra training specifically in helping clients with all forms of anxiety. I know it can get better!


– Sometimes, there is deeper, underlying trauma that needs to be healed. Sometimes, we just need a listening, supportive ear. Sometimes, we need helpful techniques. Sometimes, we need a good kick in the butt. Let’s figure it out together.

–  I am an LGTBTQ+ ally. This is near and dear to my heart.

–  I love helping couples get un-stuck. Do you seem to have the same fight over and over? Do you feel stuck in this pattern with your partner where you hurt each other in the same ways again and again? There is a way out. If you’re both willing to do the work, we can unlearn this patterns, help each other heal, and learn new and healthy patterns.

–  Adults and older teens are my specialty. If you are looking for play therapy for your child, I’m probably not the therapist for you. 

– I am a person-centered therapist. Emotionally Focused Therapy and Attachment Theory are my favorite modalities (ways of doing therapy and understanding human psychology) I also include elements from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Internal Family Systems
