Bio
I have am a native Texan, but grew up as a military dependent. I have lived in several states, Japan, and Germany. I enjoy learning other cultures, and am well aware of cultural diversity issues . My traveling experience gave me a vast knowledge concerning people, behavior, and family's. My professional education gave me the tool to earn my license, yet there is nothing like hands on experience. I reside in San Antonio, Texas and call it my home. And I began my private practice in San Antonio. I have learned that acceptance is a key to healing, and to embrace life rather than let life pass you by.
Education/Training
I am a graduate of Southwestern University, and Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas.
