My Approach to Helping

.I am passionate about showing clients that the past does not have to define who they are today or what they will be tomorrow. I believe that change and rehabilitation are always available, even when they seem impossible, if you’re willing to work. I understand that life can become a routine, that environments can form a pattern that creates an unhealthy cycle. I hope to help you break free by uncovering your strengths, core beliefs, and values.

I have worked with families, children, individuals, and teens. I have also provided rehabilitation to reduce recidivism and group counseling. I use a range of techniques, including solution-focused, narrative, reality, mindfulness, and cognitive behavioral therapies.

More Info About My Practice

I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Texas. I hold a bachelor of science degree in criminal justice with an emphasis in Forensic Psychology from Kaplan University. I completed my master of arts in professional counseling at Texas Wesleyan University. I have worked in inpatient and outpatient mental health clinics, court-mandated counseling centers, university counseling facilities, and in private practice.

I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, movies, tennis, traveling, and trying new restaurants.
