I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas and EMDR Trained. I am also a Reiki Practitioner.

Dealing with anxiety can be an intimidating and overwhelming experience. It can take over our minds, leaving little room for the things we love. In turn, negative self-talk and perfectionistic tendencies may prevent us from fulfilling our passions, leading us to feel inadequate and fearful.

As a compassionate counselor, my goal is to help you regain control and build the life you want. I specialize in supporting those who are struggling with anxiety, perfectionism, self-esteem, body image, eating disorders, and childhood trauma to heal their relationship with food, body, self, and significant others. I believe in a holistic approach that focuses on the whole person - mind, body, and spirit.

Together, we will implement strategies to build your confidence and navigate your emotions. My commitment is to provide a safe and welcoming space where you can be your authentic self. I will challenge and support you to make positive and sustainable changes, so you can reach your full potential.
