My ideal client is one who has acknowledged their issue(s) and has decided to take the first step to healing. This step is contacting a therapist. My goal is to provide a safe space for clients and to facilitate their healing. I desire to develop a therapeutic relationship, where clients have the freedom to disclose and be vulnerable. I strive to create an environment of trust and respect. I believe this is essential in the therapeutic relationship. I see each client as a unique individual, and take pride in joining in each person’s road to therapy.
I was born and raised in Houston. I earned my bachelor’s (BA, 2006) and first master’s (Educational Administration, MSEd, 2008) from Baylor University. I then earned a second master’s (Clinical Mental Health, M.A., 2014) from Sam Houston State University, and am currently enrolled in the Counselor Education, Ph.D. program, SHSU.
I have experience in clinical counseling with couples, adults, and children who have presented with a span of life issues. These include depression, anxiety, and other challenges with moods and emotions. While preferred theoretical orientations, I choose to use techniques that are best for each unique client and their presenting issue and or concern.
I counsel clients both face-to-face, and I also have online sessions via VSee, a HIPPA approved video chat platform, available.
