I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families who struggle with poor communication, boundary issues, behavioral problems, depression, anxiety, and self harming behaviors. I specialize in treating teens and adults by incorporating Reality Therapy with Art Therapy techniques. By using creative expression clients are able to get in touch with what they feel, learn what they want, evaluate their behavior and make a plan for achieving the outcomes they desire. By choosing healthy thoughts and behaviors the client chooses a more fulfilling life.
Our choices determine our happiness. I believe every individual has the power to reframe their thoughts for success.
- Teens and Adolescents experiencing anxiety, depression, self-esteem.
- Adults with concerns of depression and anxiety.
- Family challenges such as changes in life transitions, and divorce.
My goal is to help clients live a healthier life by learning skills which will enable them to cope, and ultimately find hope and happiness. I enjoy helping people move beyond the hurts and pains of current and past issues to discover the strength and beauty that lies within. Goals for my counseling relationships include improving my client’s quality of life by helping them live with mindfulness and self-actualization. I offer on-line sessions from anywhere in Texas. UPDATE: Now accepting new clients.
As life gets back to “normal”, it can be a bit confusing and stressful. I do not hold the answers but I am definitely here to help you find balance in your life as it’s transforming. I offer a person-centered and solution-focused approach to our sessions. In other words, we will work together on obstacles you are ready to tackle. Let’s get started on what is holding you back from your ideal life.
I have worked in settings ranging from inpatient, outpatient, mobile crisis specialist, respite center, and private practice settings. I believe that the past is important; however, what you are experiencing here and now is paramount. Let’s work together to make your preferred future a reality.
Please call to discuss payment options. In the near future I will be accepting most insurance plans.
We are quick to take care of our physical health by going to the doctor but going to counseling is just as important to help with our mental health. As a strong advocate for mental health, I strive to help guide individuals to develop the skills they need to feel confident in themselves and gain independence in their journey through life.
I graduated from Texas Wesleyan University in Fort Worth, TX with my Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 2010 and then in 2014 with my Masters of Arts in Professional Counseling. During my program, I studied abroad in both Sydney, Australia and London, England which helped to shape my understanding of cultural diversity.
Following college, I spent extensive time being trained in art therapy and over the past five years I have focused on helping children and teens work through trauma. My experience includes working closely with professionals, including law enforcement and CPS, to provide justice and healing to individuals who have experienced abuse. I am truly passionate about counseling children, adolescents and teenagers to help them find their voice and empower them to take charge of their own healing.
Along with teens and children, I have extensive experience working with couples and families. I believe families and couples function as systems and can work through most issues by focusing on identifying destructive patterns, working on their communication and understanding towards each other.
I look forward to meeting you and working together in order to help you achieve your goals and live a rewarding lifestyle.
