Mental Health Care Specialists
THERAPY TAILORED TO YOUR INDIVIDUAL NEEDS
At Houston Therapy, our goal is to help people live more meaningful and satisfying lives.
We provide individualized, effective, psychological care for the greater Houston area.
Overall, we view mental health and well-being from an integrative perspective. People are best understood, and change is best maintained by taking into account all aspects of a person including physical health, genetic influences, cultural identities, and past experiences. We implement effective psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among patients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, we offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each of our client's individual needs to help attain the personal growth they’re striving for.
Life can be complicated, but we are here to guide you through any obstacles you may face.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, we look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
People seek out mental health care for many different reasons. A key component of our work together will be collaboration and exploration of these reasons. I aim to provide a therapeutic space that encourages curiosity and can be a place for you to learn more about yourself while being compassionate, respectful, and affirming to individuals’ identities, beliefs, and worldviews.
My therapeutic approach emphasizes mentalizing, attachment, and psychodynamic principles. This means that I help you to understand how early relationships and experiences may have impacted your current personality, relationships, and problems in living. I frequently incorporate aspects of other therapy approaches (DBT, ACT, etc.) that utilize skills or behavioral strategies.

Identity and Self-esteem issues
PTSD & Trauma
Anxiety, fear, terror, panic, nervousness. There are a lot of different names for this emotional system but at the root of it, they are all talking about the same thing. Anxiety is a basic human emotion. It is fundamental to our survival. However, too much anxiety, or anxiety not in proper portion to a given situation, can be troubling.
Depending on the severity, depression can be extremely debilitating to an individual and their loved ones. We have helped many people recover from depression through counseling and return to their “old selves” with more insight about themselves and a greater clarity about the path forward
Trauma can happen to anyone at any time. Whether a trauma occurs in childhood or late adulthood, the effects on our mental health tend to be similar. Unlike most mental health issues, post-traumatic stress disorder is caused by something that happened “to” us. Suffering from the effects of trauma does not mean we are weak. Rather, it means that we are human.
