My Approach to Helping

Welcome! My primary goal is to encourage and inspire hope, as we work together towards your goals while fostering a greater sense of well-being, and nurturing self-confidence, as well as empowering you to change the course of your path.

I am a licensed professional counselor in Texas with over 17 years of experience as an educator, family advocate, and school counselor. I am challenged to be creative and nurturing while focusing on empowering you to reach your full potential and attain success as well as encouraging and supporting your personal growth. I encourage you to view challenging times as opportunities to begin new journeys. Through purposeful self-reflection and goal setting, you can gain different perspectives fostering growth and healing.

More Info About My Practice

In addition, I have worked with clients in a variety of challenging situations, including depression, identity, anxiety, relationships issues, life transitions, parenting issues, ADHD, as well as other social and emotional issues. My professional approach is a combination of Interpersonal, Cognitive Behavior, Humanism, Family Systems, Reality, and Integrated (Holistic) counseling. It is my goal to encourage and inspire you fostering hope, genuine acceptance, and authentic understanding, empowering you to reach your full potential on your life journey.

On a more personal note, I am the proud mother of two energetic children and a fur baby. My hobbies include community involvement, traveling, mentoring, crossword puzzles, reading, health and fitness, and spending time with my family from coast to coast. I am passionate about giving back to the community and volunteer for our mobile food bank year-round. When summer arrives, I make time to travel the world with family and friends. My summers also include mentoring school-aged children, this summer I taught racquetball, basketball, and weight training classes.

I look forward to working with you!
