Brief info

When I was in the 5th grade, my homeroom teacher asked me to help a new student that was
moving to our school. It was at that point in my life, after working with him for a few days, that I knew I
wanted to be a teacher and serve others. This student had a history of challenges related to his life
outside of school, academics, and needed a friend and mentor.
My parents have served others their entire lives, and the emotions of joy, accomplishment, setting
and reaching goals, seeing another person improve their overall quality of life has inspired me to be a
counselor. I have twenty years of experience in public education that have prepared me to transition into
the world of counseling. I have been honored and blessed to teach, coach, and counsel students in one
of the top performing school districts in the state of Texas. Over the past twenty years in this school
district, I have attended workshops, conferences, and received outstanding information from some of the
best mentors in the nation.
I am excited about this new chapter in my life as an LPC-Associate and look forward to helping
you on this journey we call life. We all go through challenges and transitions in our lives, and they all look
different depending on your specific situation. I want to help you. Allow me to use the knowledge and
experience that I have gained over the years to help you find solutions to the challenges you are facing.
The focus of our counseling sessions will be based around Solution Focused Therapy. Recognizing the
past to understand the future will help us focus on the here and now, allowing us to work cooperatively to
create goals, solutions, and coping strategies for your challenges. I feel strongly about equipping you to
live your life in a way that makes you feel important, successful, happy, and independent. Creating
measurable goals you can obtain, reflecting on the progress you have made, and moving forward is
crucial to Solution Focused Therapy. I have expertise and experience working with young people ages
12-18, and enjoy working with college aged students / adults as well. If you are struggling with any of the
following, let’s talk, and see if we are a good fit to get you moving in a positive direction.
● Anxiety
● Depression
● Academic struggles
● Coping skills
● Organization
● Using a planner
● Note taking skills
● Executive functioning skills
● Time management
● Relationships at home / school with family and or friends
● Navigating playing on a team
● Working through the ups and downs of your sports performance
● Relationships with players and coaches
Solution-focused therapy does not require a deep dive into your childhood and the ways in which your
past has influenced your present. Instead, it will root your sessions firmly in the present while working
toward a future in which your current problems have less of an impact on your life (Iveson, 2002)
