About me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas. My work is directed by a desire is to help people experience emotional growth with stronger forms of self-regulation. My goal is to help people establish the foundation(s) that will help them create and maintain greater coping skills. The strengthening of existing personal skills will help a person deal with the difficult events and stressors of their past more successfully. The creation of new skills is life impacting. These new skills will help guide a person as he/she moves toward positive experiences while leaving the negative past behind.

I feel the relationship between a counselor and client is extremely important. My counseling style demonstrates compassionate, affirmation, flexibility, and fairness. I personally feel that healing happens best within an environment of kindness, trust, and understanding.

I have more that fifteen years in the Education fields. My work has consistently been with people with differing backgrounds, histories, and experiences.
