My Approach to Helping
I am licensed by the state of Texas as a professional counselor. I have successfully passed the NCE and have been practicing in the counseling field for over two years. I received my Master's degree from Grand Canyon University in Professional Counseling and received my Bachelor's degree in Sociology from the University of North Texas.
I have extensive experience providing counseling services to all ages, including children and adolescents. Specializing in marriage/couple/family and pre-marital counseling. I have worked with individuals and families from diverse races, backgrounds, and socioeconomic statuses, providing cultural sensitivity, as well as quality individualized care. I have worked in both private practice and state hospitals. I utilize a variety of therapeutic methods that include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Reality Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Relational Therapy, and Family Systems.
More Info About My Practice
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and my puppies (two Chihuahuas- Sasha and Maliya and Pitbull-Maxine). I love to try new things; from swimming with dolphins to trying new foods. I love traveling, reading, music, and enjoying days at home. I love competition so I'm always playing a new game, going to Dave n' Busters, competing both academically and in sports, or just beating my husband at cards
