About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Texas and Pennsylvania with over 17 years of experience working as a Psychotherapist and Behavioral Specialist Consultant. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, Bipolar, relationship issues, parenting problems, grief and loss, gender identity, OCD, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm, direct, and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I do not believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, existential, and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor your treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to pursue for a more fulfilling and happier life. I am proud of you for taking the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support, to encourage, and to empower you on that journey. You can also schedule a live session (text chat, phone call, video session) with me using the Scheduler. The days/times you see are when I am available for a session, so feel free to select any slot there that works for you. I look forward to working with you!

Very patient. And also very intentional with instructions and allowing me to see how my personal homework and reflections also help lead me into making better decisions personally

Dr. Garrett has a great way of seeing through me and understanding perfectly where I’m coming form. Especially being a queer and POC individual. She is so personable and I get along really well with her.
