MY Story

An award Winning Career

For more than 24 years, I  have provided mental health services and my enthusiasm for working with people grows with each year. 

In 2001, I completed a masters degree in clinical psychology with an emphasis in marriage and family therapy at Pepperdine University. 

I then advanced my education and attended the University of Denver where in 2004, I received a doctoral degree in clinical psychology, with an emphasis in forensic assessment. 

For two decades, I have achieved advanced clinical experience working in a federal government agency as a mental health provider and law enforcement officer, managing clinical and administrative staff in the delivery of services to thousands of clients annually. 

I have curated an expertise in working with treatment resistant individuals, those at high risk for suicide, clients with substance use disorders, impulse control deficits, and most recently, seniors with declining cognitive ability. 


My work within multiple facets of psychology has enabled me to hone the ability to identify mental health blockers and provide effective treatments within a warm and supportive environment that curates a healthy healing process. My goal is to help clients develop the coping strategies needed to overcome individual challenges long after our sessions end.

In addition to therapy, I specialize in psychological assessments. I use evidence-based assessment techniques to provide accurate and reliable input that inform personalized treatment plans. From cognitive assessments to detailed psychological evaluations, my practice has extensive experience in translating the data gleaned into actionable insights that can move you or your clients forward in their journey.


For seven years, I independently facilitated a highly successful forensic evaluation program, and conducted evaluations regarding competency to stand trial and insanity and testified nationally in federal criminal courts. 

I am currently the administrator for a forensic evaluation program and supervise the work of multiple forensic examiners.

My approach to therapy is rooted in approachability and empathy, creating a safe space for you to share your story and feel heard.

In my award-winning career as a manager within one of the world’s largest correctional systems, I have built my professional brand by creating clarity, generating energy, and driving results in one of the most challenging environments for clinicians. My experience in operational and executive leadership has given me a unique perspective on the impact of mental health in various organizational settings. It is from this perspective I offer consultation services to other providers and organizations.

I am excited about the opportunity to work with you and help you on your journey towards improved mental health. If you are looking for a clinical and forensic psychologist who is approachable, empathetic, and committed to helping you achieve your goals, I invite you to schedule a consultation with me. Together, we can work towards a more fulfilled, deliberate and empowered “you.”


My 20+ years of experience in law enforcement informs my perspective and ability to relate to those who make a sacrifice every day for their communities.
Highly regarded by leadership within a federal law enforcement community, I am committed to providing excellent support to first responders.

I currently serve as the team leader for a peer support team within a federal law enforcement agency. Under my direction, the team develops wellness events in a professional setting for hundreds of law enforcement officers and provides immediate support to law enforcement officers during and immediately following critical incidents.

In the capacity of the program coordinator for an employee assistance program – I meet directly with law enforcement officers to support their interest in self-care, mental health treatment, substance abuse intervention, and suicide prevention.


I recognize that considering therapy is a huge step in attaining balanced mental health. With your courageous readiness to move forward, we can work towards achieving your goal of a healthy mind and the coping strategies to adapt to the things that cannot be changed.

Individual Therapy

I am passionate about the dynamic of group psychotherapy.

My willingness to engage those who aren’t classically drawn to treatment gives me the unique ability to not scare off from a challenging case or situation. 

Being able to adapt the treatment materials to meet the needs of the audience in a group means the group experience is customized and unique.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are services provided in person or remote?

Most services are provided remotely via HIPPA compliant platforms. Some assessment and group therapy services may be provided in-person in Pearland, Texas.


Do you accept insurance?

Relate Psychological Services accepts private-pay only. Opting for private-pay in mental well-being is a discreet alternative to Employee Assistance Programs, and ensures confidential care without involving insurance. This personalized approach minimizes documentation sent to third parties while preserving your privacy.

With no insurance pre-approvals, private-pay allows for quicker access to care, while offering you greater control over the assessment and treatment process. This autonomy empowers you with freedom to choose your practitioner and to make decisions based on personal well-being rather than insurance constraints, creating a more immediate and tailored path to mental health.

Upon request, a superbill can be provided and you may choose to submit it to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. Please review your policy benefits with your insurance provider to determine if a superbill may be later reimbursed.

Will the anger management group qualify for court or probation mandated treatment?

No, the anger management group is not intended for use within the criminal justice system. A certificate of completion can be provided upon request, but no guarantee is expressed regarding its applicability for various legal requirements (i.e., child-custody). Clients are encouraged to confirm with their referral source regarding the requirements for a mandated program.

Will the cognitive assessment for cognitive functioning clarify if a patient’s dementia is associated with Parkinson’s, Lewy Body, Frontotemporal, etc.? 

These evaluations are not intended to provide that level of detail. If patients require that type of evaluation, they are encouraged to seek out a geriatric neuropsychologist.

Can I join a psychotherapy group that has already begun?

The development of cohesion and group identity is crucial for the success of a psychotherapy group. All participants must undergo an intake and be admitted to the group before the group sessions begin.
