On one of my favorite podcasts, the hosts ask their guests at the end of every episode: “What are your three simple joys?” One of my simple joys is, without question, being able to see people live fully through the therapeutic process— to work through life’s hardships and sufferings with my clients.
I love to see individuals, couples, and families, and treat clients from age 10 through adulthood. I will welcome you into a warm and hospitable environment and hope to create an environment that feels like home. I believe that feeling known and loved are two key aspects to building a relationship of trust, and I strive to do those two things well.
The areas that I treat most often are trauma, abuse, domestic violence, church hurt, women’s issues, navigating crisis situations, relational hurt and anger, among others. No matter what the issue, I have developed a balanced approach that sees life’s sufferings as a result of a broken world. Yet, we are not without hope. My goal is to leave you each session with hope for what is to come.
The therapeutic relationship is a unique gift of human connection that can allow for immense growth in a space outside of the inner workings of everyday life. I believe that we are made for healthy relationships, with ourselves, others, and God. My goal is to build a loving and trusting environment that allows for you to delve deep into how you think, what you believe, how you feel, and how all of that impacts how you live. God created us in His image as a whole person, body and soul. Because of that, I will walk with you as a whole person, always taking into account every relevant aspect of your biological, psychological, social, emotional, and spiritual life.
I graduated from Columbia University with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Religion and received a Master of Arts in Christian Marriage, Family, and Individual Therapy from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. I am also a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists. Because of my diverse and unique educational background and experiences, I am well equipped to enter into life with people from a vast array of worldviews.
When I’m not counseling, I enjoy worshipping and serving at my local church, getting active, or exploring a new book. I have been married to my husband Titus since 2018. I grew up in the Houston area—it’s a great privilege to come back home and serve the community here!
