As a Registered Play Therapist I have been dedicated to working with children and adolescents in need of achieving harmony and healing in their lives. I use Child Centered Play Therapy with children who would benefit from expressing themselves through play as part of the therapeutic process in a playroom. I also use Sandtray therapy and other expressive arts when working with older children and adolescents outside of the playroom to foster personal expression and healing in the counseling process. I have extensive experience working to support the needs children have in both the therapeutic and educational environment including social skills, behavioral issues, coping skills, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, peer relationships, school problems, suicidal ideation, grief, loss and stress.
I have 10 years experience working in the public school system as a school counselor and classroom teacher for 9 years. As a Certified School Counselor, I supported the diverse social-emotional needs of children daily. As a Christian, I have personally experienced God’s healing and salvation in my life and believe that each person has a divine purpose and calling on their life. In therapy I enjoy creating a therapeutic environment for my clients centered on their individual needs.
I am currently in the process of being trained as an EMDR therapist and have completed over 50 hours training. I also use Solution Focused Therapy with my clients to build the tools they need to move forward with their current strengths and needs as an individual.
I am a member of the Association for Play Therapy, the Sam Houston Association for Play Therapy, and the Texas Counseling Association. I am also a Texas Certified School Counselor. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in Christianity and Communication from Houston Baptist University and a Master of Education degree with a major in School Counseling from The University of Houston – Victoria. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas, and a Registered Play Therapist.
