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.
