One of life’s guarantees is that we will experience pain and sadness at some point in our lives. One of life’s blessings is that we do not have to navigate these experiences alone. Human beings have the ability to heal emotionally just as they do physically- with time, patience, and seeking help.
If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, past traumas or even struggling to cope with all the challenges the world is facing – I am here to help you. I enjoy helping clients gain understanding into what they are experiencing. Then, together we identify ways to reduce the undesired symptoms.
It is a great passion of mine to help individuals once again find peace as well as happiness. Humor is one part of my therapy style and I encourage it for homework, too. Who says therapy cannot be both helpful and fun?!
My passion is working with individuals who have experienced traumas that are continuing to negatively impact their lives. I have worked with both teens and adults regarding issues of trauma, depression, anxiety, OCD, self-esteem, and sometimes “just having someone to talk to,” and I specialize in issues such as sexual assault and military trauma. I also enjoy working with adolescents as they navigate peer relationships, self-esteem, and the “fear of adulting”.
Just as each person is unique, so is each treatment plan and approach. I use a variety of treatment treatment approaches, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy and various Trauma Informed approaches.
I have a Master of Science in Professional Counseling and have practiced in the Houston area since 2017. In addition to my counseling license, I have been accepted into the National Board of Certified Counselors as a National Certified Counselor (NCC). I also have additional/specialized training in the area of trauma and PTSD. I am also recognized as a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP).
