Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC)
Fully Trained EMDR Therapist
National Certified Counselor (NCC)

Taking the step to begin therapy can be an indicator of the readiness for change and the hopefulness of healing. I offer a warm, compassionate, and non-judgmental environment utilizing a holistic approach to therapy to help clients discover their full potential. I will meet you where you are and join you as an insightful companion on your unique healing journey.

I strive to hold a safe space for you and to empower you to uncover your own inherent resiliency and wisdom for long-lasting change. Sessions will be collaborative and individualized to meet every client’s unique needs.

I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Texas State University and my Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Sam Houston State University. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a National Certified Counselor, and I am EMDR Trained.

My therapeutic style includes a client-centered approach, mindfulness techniques, Solution-Focused, and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). EMDR is a technique that allows processing of past and current trauma by releasing emotional blocks that have impeded personal growth and enables the healing of the symptoms of emotional distress as a result of traumatic experiences.

My experience includes working with at-risk young adults, community agencies, non-profit organizations, traumatic brain injured persons, and counseling to diverse clients in the private practice and community setting. My clinical focus is on working with individuals currently facing challenges in regards to anxiety, depression, fear, grief, existential conflict, trauma (past and present), PTSD, life transitions, self-esteem, and stress management.

I am honored to walk alongside my clients on their journey of healing by discovering their inner strengths through a collaborative approach remaining mindful of who you are, what you really want for yourself, and discovering the power within you to move towards living your ideal vision for your life.
