ife can feel burdensome and unmanageable, and our natural reaction is to expend all of our energy pushing back, putting up facades, and hiding behind masks. As human beings, we possess an unyielding potential to be open to experiences, to give and receive love, and to discover our whole self. We have a past, we experience the present, and we hope for the future. Your journey can begin with the recognition of your past as valuable, embracing the now, and planning for a more satisfying future. As Carl Rogers says, only when we discover that we are loved for who we are, not who we pretend to be, can we become a person worthy of love. My goal as a therapist is to walk with you on your path to fulfilling your capacity to be human, to give and receive love, to care, to comfort yourself and others, and to embrace all of life. To be genuinely Human is so profound and beautiful; I want to share in the journey to becoming your whole self. I am looking forward to meeting you exactly where you are and joining in your discovery to becoming a whole you.

I studied psychology at the University of Texas at Austin for my undergraduate degree and went on to earn my Masters of Arts in Counseling from Houston Baptist University. I am a licensed professional counselor intern supervised by Michelle Hawn LPC-S. For individual counseling, I serve children and adolescents ages 3+, adults, couples, families, and groups. The focus of my clinical experience is working with children and adolescents (e.g., trauma, divorce). I have spent time working with members of the LGBTQ+ community ranging from gender identity to relationship concerns. Other areas of interest are adult trauma/PTSD, depression, addiction, eating disorders, and many more. Behavioral health support (e.g., weight loss, habit management) is a significant focus of my practice as I firmly believe physical health is the foundation of ideal mental health.
