My Approach to Helping
I am a Marriage and Family Therapist who feels a relationship is a union between individuals that choose the happiness of their partner(s). In helping partners access non-verbalized emotions, acknowledge past hurts, and process underlying emotions (that you may not know to exist). It may provide understanding into those everyday disputes and decreased miscommunication. My therapeutic approach integrates Gottman Theory, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and Collaborative Language Systems Theory to help clients reconstruct negative core beliefs, value systems, and personal narratives that do not reflect who they are. This approach also allows the couple or individuals to understand how past experiences affect perception, engagement, and understanding of language. We must all understand ourselves before we can understand others.
I graduated from the University of Houston-Downtown with a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies (Education) to become an elementary teacher. I have always dreamt of helping others. As a teacher, I saw there was a need to not only help my students but each member of the family, which allows support and space for change to take place—seeing this need started me on the path of obtaining a Master of Science in Psychology, specializing in Family, Couples, and Individual Psychotherapy from Our Lady of the Lake University-Houston. I have many years of experience in providing couple, individual, family, and group therapy in a variety of settings, including inout patient and private practice.
I started Heart of Mind Therapy, PLLC, in 2021, hoping to provide the community with inclusive service to all involved. I bring compassion to the therapy room to help provide a safe space free of judgment allowing room those difficult couples, individuals, and families to start having the hard conversations. I aim to help highlight inner strength, insight, and problem solving skills, as well as, help discover new tools to overcome struggles, discover your strengths, and to lead a happier, more fulfilling day-to-day life.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
At Heart of Mind Therapy, we believe in fostering a growth mindset through psychotherapy. Unlike a fixed mindset that sees abilities as innate and unchangeable, a growth mindset thrives on the belief that talents and qualities can be developed through dedication and effort. In our therapeutic process, individuals are encouraged to embrace challenges, learn from setbacks, and cultivate resilience.
Psychotherapy creates a supportive environment for individuals, couples, and families to explore new perspectives, challenge limiting beliefs, and embark on a journey of continuous personal and relational growth. By fostering a growth mindset, our aim is to empower clients to see possibilities, adapt to change, and cultivate a sense of optimism in the face of life's challenges.
