I am a Counselor licensed in Texas with training in strengths-based and goal-focused therapies. I have a master’s degree in Rehabilitation counseling. I have experience working with clients in several areas including Depression, Anxiety, Stress, substance abuse, relationship issues, and career challenges. I have also worked with individuals who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style can be described as welcoming, open, and interactive. I believe in treating everyone equally with respect, compassion, and sensitivity.

Aside from process therapy, I am also active with psycho-educational therapy, assisting clients to broaden their knowledge and awareness to physical, social and environmental factors of their lifestyles.
I enjoy working with clients who are on a road to healing and recovery, and feel honored to assist them in the journey.
