Welcome. I'm glad you are here.

The focus of my practice is to help individuals and couples who are experiencing infertility or who are considering third-party reproduction or adoption.  My passion for working in these areas stems from a unique blend of both personal and professional experience.

I'm one of the few therapists in the Houston area who is a member of  the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, Mental Health Professional Group that sets professional standards and guidelines for fertility counselors.  I'm also a professional member of Resolve, The National Infertility Association, and I facilitate a Resolve infertility support group.  I've been providing counseling and support in the mental health field for 20 years.
