I have been married to my best friend for 24 years. I am a mom of 2 college age sons and 1 daughter, who is in elementary school. I love volunteering at my daughter's school and helping in her school library. Our family has 3 chihuahuas, who seem to think they are little people.
I co-facilitate a breast cancer survivor's group once a month in the Clear Lake area. I am also a Mental Health Crisis Volunteer for the American Red Cross for specific crisis situations that occur locally.
I graduated from the University of Houston-Clear Lake in 2003, with a Master of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I completed a 1 year internship at UTMB-Gavleston in the Family Medicine Department. I also completed 2 years post-graduate work at Memorial Hermann Hospital and Harris County Hospital District.
I have worked in the public school district with severe MR and Autistic students and their families, where I created a curriculum, provided family sessions, and trainings for staff.
I have worked in the non-profit sector with students at risk or already using drugs/alcohol, behavioral challenges, and family issues. I had the privilege to work closely with the City of La Porte and Congressman Ted Poe to bring community awareness to the effects of underage drinking.
My clinical experience has given me opportunities to work with individuals, couples, and group work. I enjoy working with highly motivated individuals, couples determined to work on their relationship, and survivor's of cancer and mesh.
I work with English and Spanish clients, who are aged 17 and up.
I maintain my licenses through workshops, trainings, and yearly conferences.
I encourage you to call me so that we can talk further and determine if we are a good match for one another.
I look forward to hearing from you.
