Developed The Clarity Key©- A model of the dynamics of the mind which exposes and eliminates unconscious beliefs blocking success and happiness. I teach Clarity Key© classes to facilitate rapid changes in perspective to achieve peace and self-acceptance at very affordable rates.
My diverse background uniquely prepares me to bring the right modality to the right person at the right time. I utilize all the tools at my disposal to restore peace and health to my clients as quickly and painlessly as possible. My focus is restoring balance among all the aspects of the individual; mental, emotional, physical and spiritual.
Above all else, I build relationships. The relationship between the therapist and client is the most robust healing tool of all. I have been in private practice for 20 years and many of my clients have been with me since the beginning. They return periodically for 'tune ups' as they encounter new challenges in life like dating, marriage, children, parenting, aging, disease, care of parents, divorce, remarriage, step-parenting, career issues, work concerns, the list goes on. In many cases I see multiple generations of the family. This gives me a rich understanding of the whole family system so that my interventions are effective and lasting for everyone.
My preference is to become the life-long family counselor. When troubles arise, as they invariably do, my clients have a trusted counselor to call on who already knows their history. There is no delay in getting to the issues. It is far more efficient and effective than starting over in the middle of a crisis situation.
No malpractice history found for Texas.
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor’s board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
Healthgrades reports non-disciplinary board action history from for the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.

Healthgrades collects non-disciplinary board actions from all 50 U.S. states.
