I earned a Master of Arts in Counseling from Dallas Baptist University. I have a passion for serving others whether individually or in a group setting as many people are dealing with issues at different degrees of seriousness. I have direct clinical experience working with victims of domestic violence, substance abuse, anxiety, low self-esteem and depression amongst other issues.

As a counselor, I understand the process of counseling may be challenging and at times uncomfortable as we are discussing issues that remind clients of painful memories. Therefore, my goal is to assist clients in moving past their past and creating a safe place for clients to communicate openly, honestly and without fear or judgment. Additionally, I strive to empower and encourage clients to reach their full potential through implementation of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Client-Centered Therapy, Eclecticism, Trauma Focused Therapy as well as other modalities.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family, friends, traveling, reading and watching episodes of Law and Order SVU. I truly believe self-love is the best love, which I demonstrate through self-care as one of my favorite quotes state “Survival as a counselor or anti-violence worker depends on the individual embracing a commitment to one’s self with the same energy and passion dedicated to the work.”
