I am licensed and trained to practice psychology in the state of Texas. I received my Doctoral degree in clinical psychology from Southern Methodist University and an additional master’sdegree in Applied Cognition and Neuroscience with a specialization in Neurological Diagnosis from the University of Texas at Dallas.

I am excited to offer a group which addresses common issues that girls face with friendships. This group offers therapeutic techniques and social skill development in a fun environment that fosters peer relationships. Group members learn to work together, support one another, and trade ideas with their peers.
