I am a licensed professional counselor in Texas with over 3 years of experience working with individuals across the lifespan from inpatient, outpatient, and private practice settings. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, low self-esteem, career challenges, PTSD, OCD, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical and sexual trauma as well as emotional abuse.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I take a holistic and integrative approach that combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapies. I am EMDR trained and certified in Integrative Mental Health. I will work collaboratively with you and tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you in that journey.
