About me

At this time, I'm scheduling in late evenings to accommodate parental duties and work schedules. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Texas. I've been working primarily with adolescent and adult survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse since 2015. I am certified in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), an evidence-based modality developed specifically for reducing the effects of trauma. The effects of trauma can linger many years after the event, and I am ready to help you process the reminders of your past that still impact you, whether recent or long ago. Because of my work with survivors of trauma, I have also gained experience working with overcoming depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and attachment/intimacy fears.

I am a safe person for all people, including individuals on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum and those of diverse (or no) religious beliefs. I am a foster/adoptive parent and have extensive experience navigating the Texas foster care system as well as the additional parenting stressors unique to parenting children who've experienced trauma. I am familiar with Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI), a parenting technique developed for raising children from hard places. Having spent all of my career in education and social services, I am familiar with preventing and addressing compassion fatigue/burnout. Some individuals may feel nervous or vulnerable when beginning counseling, so it's important to me to be a completely safe, non-judgmental, and affirming counselor who can handle hefty topics.
