Brief info

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Associate, with degrees from Houston Baptist University and Texas A&M University. I have experience working with clients in both private practice and treatment center settings, specifically to address:

  • addiction (gambling, sex and love, and chemical dependency)
  • trauma
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • identity exploration (including LGBTQ+ identity exploration)
  • suicidality
  • adoption
  • parent coaching
  • mood disorders
  • personality disorders
  • somatic experiencing
  • life adjustments

I have worked with kiddos 8+ and their parents, with specific training in teens and adults.

I believe full-heartedly in looking holistically at who you are as a person- the biological, psychological, and social factors that combine to make you your distinctive self. I believe every person comes from a unique set of circumstances, therefore requiring a unique treatment style. I will work with you to create a plan that best addresses what you would like to tackle using a humanistic approach combined with CBT and DBT-style techniques.

Therapy is a collaborative process where you and I will work together to understand the issues from their core to how they affect your daily functioning in even the smallest ways. I value open communication, compassion, and teamwork, so I will work hard to create a space for you or your child that allows vulnerability and productive progress.
