I earned my BS in Psychology with a Business minor from Texas A&M University (go Aggies!) and my MA in Counseling from Saint Louis University. After my degree, my husband and I lived in St. Louis for 8 years where I gained certification in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy and worked on depression research studies as a therapist. After we had our daughter, we quickly realized that we needed more support as parents, so we high-tailed it back to Dallas. Since being back, I have worked at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital in Clinical Research while counseling part-time.
Certified in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) which is an evidence-based treatment for young children with behavioral problems. The therapist provides real-time feedback on how you can interact and help your child.
Trained in Motivational Interviewing in which I will encourage you to talk about your need for change and your own reasons for wanting to change. My role is mainly to evoke a conversation about change and commitment.
Trained in Interpersonal Psychotherapy which is a 12-16 program based on the principle that relationships and life events impact mood and that the reverse is also true.
