My Approach to Helping
Clinical Approach: I use an integrative approach. I believe that no one approach will cover every aspect of the issues that clients bring to the table. I collaborate with the client to be most effective because every individual and every situation is unique, and should be treated as such in order to receive the optimal results. In order to effectively help my clients achieve clarity, healing and reach their goals, I utilize techniques with the most favorable approach to fit the needs of each situation. At the end of our time together, my wish is for you to be enlightened, driven, confident and empowered to continue on the new and enriched path that you worked so hard to successfully pave during therapy.
A Bit About Myself: I enjoy spending time with my mom, husband, and 4 sons. I love singing, dancing, cracking jokes, laughing and playing, relaxing watching reality TV, HGTV, cooking and baking shows, and really good movies.
More Info About My Practice
I have completed the following education: Associates of Arts in Psychology from Tyler Junior College, Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from Ashford University, and a Master’s of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Texas A&M University Commerce. I received training and work experience as a Behavioral Therapist Tech working with children on the Autism Spectrum. During my graduate internship, I received half of my hours working with children who had been sexually andor physically abused. I co-lead group therapy for the parents to process how they were affected by their child or family being the victim andor predator, understanding the court process, etc. I received my remaining hours working in private practice with clients who experienced anxiety, depression, alcohol abuse, life transitions, relationship issues, grief, etc. Since obtaining my license, my experience has continued in private practice treating clients to include the previously mentioned specialty areas and suicidal ideation, self-harm, teen group, family conflict, and more.
