I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and a native of Houston. I finished my undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of Houston and earned my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas.


I completed a year of post-doctoral training in New York City at the Mount Sinai Medical School. Early in my training, I developed a special interest in autism, Asperger’s Syndrome and pervasive developmental disorders. My research work has included publishing papers on the  treatment of, and quality of life for, individuals on the autism spectrum, writing grants to fund autism research, and investigating new ways to treat autism spectrum disorders. I also served as Research Director for an autism clinic and have served as Director for a non-profit autism research center (Foundation for Autism Research and Remediation).


My current interests are in helping all children realize and develop their full potential. I love working with children because of their curiosity, open-mindedness, and eagerness to try new things.


As a cancer survivor, I have also developed a strong interest in helping adults and children living with serious medical health issues, including cancer, cerebral palsy, MS, and pain syndromes.


I believe in change. I believe that we all have the capacity to adapt to change that creates stress in our lives, such as an illness, divorce, or loss. I also believe that we each have the capacity to change ourselves. My favorite saying is: If you don’t like the way something looks, change the way you look at it.


I believe that therapy is a deeply personal and interpersonal process. I am honored when I am invited to accompany an individual or family on their journey toward healing and happiness. There are many therapeutic approaches and I tend to use the approach best suited to my client’s needs and goals.
