Intro

I'm a clinical psychologist in Texas and part of PSYPACT so I can see clients in many states. I have worked in a variety of settings, including hospitals, corrections, VAs, and private practice. Through those experiences, I learned I deeply enjoy helping people disentangle their mental health concerns and using an affirming lens!

What motivated you to specialize in working with autistic adults?

I'm a clinical psychologist in Texas and part of PSYPACT so I can see clients in many states. I have worked in a variety of settings, including hospitals, corrections, VAs, and private practice. Through those experiences, I learned I deeply enjoy helping people disentangle their mental health concerns and using an affirming lens!

How do you bring a strengths-based, affirming approach to your client work?

I think it's important to use your language throughout the process. I also want to help people adapt their environments to their own needs, especially since the opposite has been demanded by neurodivergent folks. This also sparks creativity for how we use the process and structure of our sessions to your strengths and needs!
