I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Texas with almost 10 years of experience. I have worked with all age ranges in a variety of settings (schools, community mental health, inpatient, and private practice). I have worked with clients with a wide range of issues including but not limited to depression, bipolar, anxiety, life transition issues, family conflict, traumatic experiences, relationship issues and psychosis. My speciality is working with people who have experienced some form of abuse, whether it be physical, sexual or emotional.
I am direct with all of my clients but also provide an empathetic ear and safe environment to encourage a health counseling relationship. I blend a variety of approaches; cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, dialectical behavioral therapy, and solution focused therapy, but ultimately will cater my approach to meet my clients needs.
Choosing to begin counseling can be an intimidating feat but ultimately can help you develop the skills you need to live a life with purpose. I am always willing to walk alongside my clients and support them in whatever decision they are faced with. I look forward to working with you all!

Andrea has been extremely helpful in the process of helping me work through my mental health issues. She's very patient & understanding with me, allowing me to express how I feel, no matter how repetitive it may sound, she understands my thought process & continues to walk me through it. I'm still a work in progress but I know that with Andrea's help, I'll continue to improve. Plus, she has a good sense of humor whenever I send her therapy related memes.
She is literally my saving grace everyday.
Andrea is fantastic! She has helped me work through so much and I feel like I’m making a lot of progress with my anxiety and in my marriage. Thank you Andrea!!
Andrea is a great counselor! She helped me deal with stress and anxiety after I had a really rough year. She is attentive and listens to me. She even gives great advice on things to help you when you’re not physically with her in counseling. She is also trustworthy and kind. 10/10 would recommend.
I had Andrea as my counselor through my trial period for a week and that was honestly the best week of my life. It opened my eyes to a lot of things also I was able to vent. I would recommend Andrea and BetterHelp.com to those who need help in their lives.
Andrea is amazing! She pays attention, gathers facts, asks valuable, valid questions. 10 out of 10!
Andrea was a wonderful counselor. I confided in her and she was able to direct me with questions she already knew I had an answer for. I just needed that direction; and Andrea provided that.
I had been putting off counseling for awhile and I'm glad I got paired with Andrea. As someone who doesn't really like the idea of counseling this was painless and helpful.
