My Approach to Helping
Emotional pain leaves behind questions that are hard to answer. I will be honored to help you in your search for meaning. I provide the safe and calm place you need to express your thoughts and feelings. My office can be the space where you leave behind your worries and stress to face the world with renewed strength. I am here for you whether you want to find relief from mental and emotional pain or simply identify goals.
It takes tremendous courage to be vulnerable in the presence of a stranger and to trust them. That is why I try my best to make this process as easy for you as possible. I offer free phone consultations and a free 15 min face to face session, to help you assess your therapeutic needs and to allow for the growth of a positive healing relationship.
I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Texas and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP). I am a candidate under training as an EMDR specialist. I completed my Masters in Counseling in 2012 from Southern Methodist University with coursework in child and adolescent counseling, crisis intervention and chemical dependency. I have extensive experience working in the field of trauma and addiction. I have worked in the Trauma Department at Timberlawn Mental Health Hospital under the Collin Ross Institute, with The Victim Intervention program at Parkland Hospital and most recently I was a residential counselor at Nexus Recovery Center.
