I strive to offer human connection to my clients, through therapy, and meet them wherever they are in their life journey. My goal is to explore with my clients whatever treatment goals they may have and then create a safe space for my clients to share and heal and grow toward meeting their goals.
I have experience treating anxiety, depression, substance use and abuse, schizophrenia, bipolar, and personality disorders. I have enjoyed running psychoeducational groups covering topics such as boundaries, assertiveness, grief, and DBT (dialectical behavior therapy) skills.
I have extensive experience working with clients who are survivors of sexual abuse and/or domestic violence as well as addiction. I am a member of the American Counseling Association. As a former associate teacher with HISD, I also have trainings in suicide recognition and prevention.
I studied with the Townsend Institute under the leadership of Christian author and clinical psychologist, Dr John Townsend. I focused on human attachment as well as the therapeutic relationship offering the horizontal part of the cross. The vertical part of the cross represents our relationship with God and the horizontal part of the cross is fulfilled by our relationship with others.
For my undergraduate degree, I studied Government and Politics at the University of Maryland, College Park and even worked as a congressional intern in Washington D.C. at the US House of Representatives for the 8th district of Maryland. My graduate training was through Concordia University in Irvine, California. I hold a Masters of Arts in Mental Health Counseling, and I am currently licensed as an LPC associate (LPC-A) in the State of Texas. I am supervised by Lee Hudson, Psy.D., LPC-S.
I'm a single mom to two great teenage boys who don’t just play video games but love to code as well! A fun fact is that I spent time in New York training to be an actor and vocal performer. I enjoy the arts and singing with our worship team at my church. I am an avid cruise-goer who loves snorkeling in the Caribbean.
