Credentials : I am trained as a Clinical Psychologist to provide psychological assessment and treatment to individuals, couples, families, and groups. I am licensed by the State of Texas. As a psychologist I do not prescribe medication; I am, however, willing to work with your physician or psychiatrist to ensure that you receive comprehensive mental health care. I adhere to the Ethical Standards established by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists and the American Psychological Association.
Because I want to provide clients the best care possible, I engage in extensive training. I have, in recent years,
- over a 100 hours of training in couples therapy from the Gottman Institute;
- a certification in EMDR through EMDRIA for the treatment of trauma
- eighty hours of training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and an ongoing consultation group, for the treatment of trauma;
- significant training in hypnosis and the use of mindfulness meditation in treatment.
Our field has changed a lot -- we have learned important things about how the brain changes in the process of psychotherapy. We know more about creating change and providing better treatment. I take seriously my commitment to staying current and providing patients with treatment that works.
