Meeting Locations

I do not have a traditional office in Port Aransas because small office space on the island is very limited and can be very expensive.  I also keep my private practice intentionally small and part-time; most of my clients come to me by word-of-mouth or other referrals.  To help keep costs low and offer discounts for those with limited financial means, I offer people options on where we meet, including house calls and meeting at other relatively private and convenient locations, like the beach. 

Meeting At the Beach

In his book, Blue Mind, marine biologist Wallace J. Nichols sites a wealth of research supporting the value of being in, on, or near water for emotional health and well-being.  Whenever possible, I like to take advantage of the natural environment and meet with people at the beach, whether sitting under the peer or taking a walk as we talk.  Naturally, confidentiality cannot be guaranteed at the beach; however, there can be a paradox of privacy when meeting in public (i.e., not really being noticed amidst many beachgoers).    


House Calls 

There is a long history of social workers, ministers, and doctors making house calls.  Whether you come to me or I go to you, I've met with clients across a spectrum of homes, both on and off the island, including RVs, condos, home offices, and traditional beach houses on pilings, as well as nursing homes, hospitals, and rehab centers.  Meeting in a client's home is often helpful for me because it gives me a non-judgmental glimpse at a person's immediate living environment which can often impact their emotional health.


Veterans at the Corpus Christi Chiropractic and Wellness Clinic

Many of my VA psychological evaluations are completed at the Corpus Christi Chiropractic & Wellness Clinic (also known as Corpus Christi Rejuvenation & Aesthetics), where I have a small office.  The clinic is ADA compliant and located at 2033 Airline Road, Suite H-1, Corpus Christi, TX 78412, (361) 853-1400.  The clinic is in a large shopping center on the corner of Airline and Holly; the clinic faces Airline and is next to a donut shop.
