About Me

I am a professional counselor licensed in Texas with 9 years of experience working as a therapist and a qualified mental health professional at a community health clinic and private practice. I graduated with my Master's degree from Prairie View A&M in Texas. I have worked with clients that range in ages from 3 years old to 60 years old of multiple ethnic and racial backgrounds, cultures, political affiliations, genders and sexuality, and spiritual beliefs dealing with a variety of concerns. I have experience working with clients presenting with issues concerning depression, anxiety self-esteem, trauma, abuse, relationship conflict, psychosis, self-harm, domestic violence, and child protective services involvement
When I work with clients, I spend time understanding in a deep and connected way how you are experiencing your life. With support and non-judgmental curiosity, I will look below the surface. I may examine family of origin dynamics, core beliefs you hold about yourself and where you may have learned them, values you have and how your choices do or do not support them, and when and how you limit yourself or get in your own way.
In our busy lives, we tend to avoid or not even notice our feelings until they suddenly demand our attention. I will encourage you to mindfully move into these (sometimes uncomfortable) feelings as, when honored and released, they can be fantastic guides.
It is paramount that the relationship between us feels supportive and serves as a container in which you can explore honestly, freely and bravely. It is my first priority to make therapy a space where you feel seen and understood. Meeting this priority factors prominently into the work.
