About

I started my private practice in June of 2006, but my experience in counseling related settings began years prior. I have worked in several types of settings and with a wide range of clientele. It is because of these experiences and trainings that I have been able to provide assistance and guidance in numerous areas, such as depression, anxiety, body image issues, and trauma, just to name a few. It has also rewarded me with the ability to provide counseling services to a wide range of ages. In 2008, I became a Board Approved Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor in the state of Texas. This allows me to help others move forward in improving and strengthening their abilities to become great therapists.

I am a trained therapist in EMDR (Eye Movement Densensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy, which has been a treatment of choice for PTSD as well as several other distressing situations. EMDR Therapy enables the brain to heal from past traumatic experiences, thoughts, memories, feelings, etcetera giving the client freedom from the disturbances and distress these have likely caused throughout one’s life. I also utilize other evidence-based modalities depending on issues being addressed. Some of these include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, and Person Centered Therapy. Together, we will determine what type of counseling would be beneficial for you.

The most important aspect for me is to provide a place where a relationship can be established and my clients feel supported and welcomed. I hope to show my clients they have the ability to reach their full potential and know there are people who want to understand and help them live the life they fully deserve.
