Individual Therapy for Adults

ONLINE // HOUSTON, TEXAS 

Rebel against your inner-critic.

Nurture your vulnerability as a strength.

Empower your creative, resilient self. 

I enjoy working with adults who are simply seeking an accepting, pressure-free space to be themselves and process their thoughts and feelings about the everyday nuances of being a human in relationship with other humans.

 

I specialize in therapy for those who struggle with intense emotions related to the symptoms of anxiety and depression, whether these emotions feel unmanaged or so controlled you can't feel anything.

I'm particularly interested in helping my clients work towards healing from painful past childhood experiences in which their core needs were not consistently met.

Mood & Anxiety Issues

Depression and anxiety lie to us; they bind and gag our intuition so we cannot trust ourselves. Having a supportive, trusting therapy relationship can make all the difference. I will help you defeat these enemies and center with your true-self. 
 

In therapy, you can learn to...

  • express your feelings through healthy and creative outlets.

  • rebel from the constant worrying and pessimism.

  • maintain groundedness, even within moments of chaos.

  • create meaning from life's setbacks and disappoints.

  • embrace what makes you different.

  • communicate your needs and feelings more effectively. 

  • build protective yet flexible inter- and intra-personal boundaries.

  • connect with others and alleviate loneliness.
  • accept the things you cannot change and change the things you can.
  • improve your skill with perspective-taking and metacognition.

  • nurture your capacity for compassion and empathy.

  • discuss medication and develop a relationship with a psychiatrist, if needed.

 

As a child or teen, developing in an environment in which our core emotional needs are not appropriately or consistently met can be traumatic. Core emotional needs include secure attachment to others, nurtured autonomy/identity, freedom to express one's valid needs and feelings, spontaneity and play, and realistic limits to support self-discipline. 

In therapy, we work together to lessen the negative impact of those needs going unmet by...

  • establishing, over time, a trusting relationship in which I can serve to meet some of those unmet needs by providing the validation, acceptance, boundaries, and relaxation necessary for healing.

  • uncovering the root cause of damaging relationship patterns.

  • grieving for and making peace with your past.

  • building awareness of the current mechanisms that perpetuate childhood unmet needs well into adulthood.

  • revising limited beliefs and unhelpful behavior patterns with truth-based, balanced alternatives.

  • developing a healthy relationship with your vulnerable inner child.

  • countering dysfunctional levels of criticism and unrelenting standards (towards yourself and others).

  • creating limits and self-disciplines that help you meet personal responsibilities and self-care needs.
