Don’t be afraid to take a big step. You can’t cross a chasm in two large jumps.

Your privacy is essential.

Did you know…
When you use health insurance coverage for payment, your records are not confidential. The insurance company has the right to audit all of your information and without your written permission or knowledge. In today’s world, it’s important to keep your private information confidential and out of the public domain.

My background

I am licensed by the State of Texas as a Clinical Social Worker in Private Practice. I have a Master’s Degree from the University of Houston Graduate School of Social Work.

What if you miss an appointment?

The time is reserved exclusively for you and in good business practice payment will be required.

Can you do phone sessions?

Yes I can.

Additional services

Additional services such as unexpected crisis management over the phone or in person, requests to read lengthy reports or personal literature, consultations with other professionals – including travel time and written reports for legal and other matters – are all billed at the full fee therapy rate.

What can you expect during your session?

We talk, and you share what you’re coming to see me about, and what your goals are and how you want to achieve those goals.

How frequently will your appointments be scheduled?

That’s a decision we will make together.
