ABOUT ME

I received my graduate education at Palo Alto University where I completed my clinical training at the Palo Alto VA and the National Center for PTSD. I then completed my internship at the Houston VA and a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at UT Health San Antonio with the STRONG STAR Consortium and the Consortium to Alleviate PTSD at Fort Hood. I am licensed in the state of Texas and board certified in Behavioral and Cognitive Psychology. Currently, I am in private practice in Southlake, Texas and a staff psychologist with the VA North Texas Health Care System. I was born and raised in a small town in North Texas before I moved to California for graduate school. I'm glad to be back home in Texas and to be serving folks in the DFW area struggling to overcome the pain and suffering that can follow life’s most significant stressors.
