About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor providing therapeutic services to clients. I love what I do as a clinician! Helping you achieve a fulfilling life is truly a remarkable accomplishment. I have been helping clients with mental health challenges for more than 7 years. As a personable and compassionate person; cultivating a therapeutic relationship includes my clients being heard, understood, supported and accepted in order to grow. As your therapist, I will guide you with gaining new perspective and encouraging you to own your story. I have my Masters in Counseling from Prairie View A&M University. I also have experience with providing therapy services in various setting such as inpatient, outpatient, community and private practice to various populations such as children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. Let start growing!


I have worked with mothers and daughters who struggle with frequent conflict.The biggest breakthrough I've helped with this population included helping them find peace to improve their family dynamic and implementing healthy communication skills mitigating generational cycles.

No one experience is never the same! I believe in providing my clients with an electric therapy approach focusing on information regarding your past and current experiences that brought you to therapy. The process can also look like you venting your emotions and feelings while working on coping skills to manage symptoms.

Our first session will involve me getting to know the you as a person and what feels important for you to explore. I will gather general background questions about family history and relationships as well as what you would like to accomplish in therapy.

I'm motivated when my clients feel empowered to make the necessary changes to improve their lives.


    What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

    My counseling approach involves my empathetic, personable and authentic style. I specialize in providing cognitive-behavioral interventions, coupled with dialectical behavioral therapy, solution-focused concepts and client centered therapy. I have worked with clients experiencing a variety of mental health illnesses such as anxiety, depression, stress and interpersonal challenges.

    What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

    I utilize evidence-based therapies, including: Psychotherapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy

    Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

    My former clients have described our therapy process as encouraging and motivating. My general expertise lies in guiding young adults and adults through mental health challenges.In addition, I can provide therapy to those experiencing, interpersonal conflicts, life transitions, anger/mood dysregulation, grief, depression and anxiety.
