Forming genuine, meaningful connections is about the most important thing we do in life. Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs is a little upside down, people die from isolation and research shows that.
My primary methodology is as an eclectic Rogerian meaning in the first session I will listen, ask questions, and listen again. When we meet for the second session I will let you know which approaches are shown to be most effective according to research, what pieces I believe will be the most effective, and then we will put your recovery path together as a team.
Being people can be kind of fun and weird, I like to share that. I work from the lens of positive psychology. Yes, you have concerns, problems, and challenges. You also have strengths and have survived all of your worst days. In both my personal and professional life I love seeing the passions people carry or develop within themselves, it is awe inspiring.

While working as a public school teacher for 15 years I founded after school activities for STEM and LGBT activities and worked with an LGBT resource center for 3 years facilitating groups. Transitioning to counselling I worked with young adults in alternative peer groups dealing with substance abuse, private practice, a clinical psychiatric hospital, and a long term dual diagnosis substance abuse center. Advocating for marginalized populations, I founded Houston's largest polyamory community.
