Profession: Marriage and Family Therapist
Services: Psychotherapy/Counseling
Practice Description: I work with both with couples and individuals, particularly those dealing with relationship problems, anxiety, and periods of high stress. My specialization is in marriage and family therapy, and I'm welcoming of high-conflict couples and families. As a therapist, I'm committed to developing a close, working relationship with clients, and I believe humor, openness, and directiveness all serve this goal. My strength is in balancing assertiveness and directness with empathy and support.

I tend to view problems as occurring when we get stuck in some way, using ineffective solutions to problems, relying on outdated coping styles, and repeating patterns that make problems worse rather than better. Change is possible when we learn to disrupt these patterns, creating the possibility for more satisfying interactions and deeper connection.

My approach can be best defined as integrative, combining aspects of Systemic Therapy (focused on roles and interactional patterns), Gestalt (a holistic approach focused on experience in the present), Cognitive-Behavioral (an approach focused on thoughts and behavior), and Emotionally-Focused Therapy (a couple approach focused on connection).

In addition to practicing psychotherapy, I'm on the faculty at Texas A&M Medical School’s department of psychiatry (Round Rock campus). And I’ve taught courses on American history, culture, and psychology at Southwestern University, the University of Texas, and Mount Holyoke College. I blog for Psychology Today, and have written a book on the cultural history of psychology in America (entitled Encountering America: Humanistic Psychology, Sixties Culture, and the Shaping of the Modern Self).
