About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas, where I received a Master’s degree in Counseling from the University of Texas Pan American. I have been working in an outpatient counseling setting for over 13 years and have gained experience in working with children & adults from ages ranging from 6 to 60. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, anger, poor self-esteem, cognitive deficits, and brain injuries. I help my clients manage these areas and find coping strategies that suit their individual needs.

My style of counseling is encouraging and optimistic as I strive to empower my clients with belief in themselves so that they take responsibility and initiative to overcome hardships and begin living life to the fullest. I incorporate Cognitive behavioral, Reality, Existential, and Client-Centered approaches.

In my personal life, I believe in Jesus Christ and am active in my local church where I am part of the praise and worship team. I play acoustic guitar and sing on the team. I come from a large family and have been blessed to have a good relationship with all of my siblings and my parents.

I hope to have the opportunity to work with you and help you find the best way to better cope and manage whatever may be going on in your life.
