About Me

Seeking therapy to address mental and emotional health is an empowering decision that will transform your life. Therapy helps build self-awareness of emotions, thoughts, behaviors and decision making. Whether you are experiencing anxiety, abandonment, anger, boundary issues, depression, family conflict, or grief, therapy will lead to healthier outcomes.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and graduate of University of Houston-Clear Lake. I have five years of experience in the mental health field, during this time I have worked with individuals from many different walks of life. Some of my experience includes individual and group therapy, family therapy and substance abuse/addiction recovery. My experience has inspired me and allowed me to better understand the world we live in.

To best meet the specific and unique needs of each individual, often times an integrative approach is most helpful. This brings together different elements of specific therapies where I draw from client-centered, cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic approaches. As a Licensed Professional Counselor committed to the therapeutic process, it is essential that I ensure a positive and supportive therapeutic environment. In this space you will be free to express, explore, and begin to understand your feelings and how to process them. Learning to trust and honor your efforts to bring about healing and personal growth is a rewarding experience.

If you are new to therapy or would like to return, you will not have to do it alone. I look forward to meeting and supporting you on your journey.
