I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas with 4.5 years of experience in providing direct mental health and behavioral counseling. I have worked with individuals ages six to adult with a variety of mental health/behavioral presenting issues such as: anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, community violence, phase-of-life problems, relationship and family issues, sexuality concerns, and many more. As a standard practice, I approach the therapeutic relationship with an acute sensitivity and respect for multi/cross-cultural factors and influence.
My experience is varied and across a wide array of settings, as I have provided individual, group and family therapy in community mental health agencies, day treatment facilities, rehabilitation centers and even prisons. I believe our belief systems strongly influence our thoughts, feelings, and actions toward many activating events in our lives and help shape us into the people we are today and the decisions we make daily. I believe that all individuals are heavily influenced by our closest relationships, communities, environment, systems (family, work, school, church, etc) and personal experiences. I strive to treat the therapeutic relationship, and you, with compassion, respect, and warmth.
My therapy style and approach is influenced by Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy primarily and Structural Systems Theory. It is extremely important to me to be able to collaborate with you to tailor my treatment and approach to what works best for you. Setting and realizing your goals is a team-effort, and together we will work at your comfort level to effectively establish and achieve goals that make sense for your life. Whether you’re on an altruistic path of self-discovery, or ultimately looking to alleviate symptoms for a better quality of life, together we can work to achieve your goals!
Mental health is a journey, and while you may feel lost now, that is not an indication of how your life will continue. It takes a lot of strength and will power to work towards a more fulfilling and happier life, if you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
