About Me

Welcome! I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Texas with over 15 years of counseling experience. I have worked with a wide range of client concerns, including career challenges, grief & loss, anxiety, relationship issues, self-esteem & confidence, women's issues, and parenting challenges. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse, am a former foster parent, and am an adoptive parent myself.

I use a person-centered, holistic approach to counseling, and I consider the whole person; emotional, mental, spiritual, cultural & physical. I meet you where you are. I use an eclectic modality approach and believe different techniques work well for different people. I work with my clients in finding a modality that works for them. My approaches combine cognitive-behavioral, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused therapy. I will guide our sessions and treatment plans to meet your needs
I can also help clients identify the painful emotional symptoms and/or associated behavioral problems that hinder effective functioning and become barriers to accomplishing personal and professional goals. We look at what the contributors are to the symptoms and work to identify triggers and coping skills. We will create a strong therapeutic alliance.

I believe each person is unique and can facilitate their forward movement with assistance from the right person. Each client is deserving of unconditional acceptance, regardless of their challenges or struggles. Each person holds a different readiness for change and deals with loss differently, and I believe we all have the internal tools and power to create our own solutions and begin moving forward on life’s twisting pathway.

I am always here to support you through your journey, and I look forward to working with you!
