Hello. Thanks for stopping by to learn more about me to decide if I would be a good fit for you.
I have been a therapist for 14 years, and in private practice since 2007. I've worked at homeless shelters, hospitals, school, non-profit agencies, and served as Community Coalition Coordinator, where I worked with city officials of La Porte, Pasadena, South Houston, and Deer Park. I also had the distinguished honor of meeting with state representatives for Texas and worked with Congressman Ted Poe, with the presentation of the key to the city for La Porte.
I graduated from the University of Houston-Clear Lake with my Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy. I graduated with top honors and was listed in Who's Who Among Universities and Colleges, inducted into the academic honor society: Psi Chi, and received the Texas Association for Marriage and Family Therapists-Outstanding Masters Student Award .
I completed a one year internship at UTMB-Galveston, and two years post-graduate work at Memorial Hermann Hospital-Medical Center in the Neuroscience and Stroke Units, and the emergency room at Ben Taub and community clinics within the Harris County Hospital District.
I am currently in the doctoral program for Marriage and Family Therapy at Loma Linda University. I have served as a co-facilitator for the Wellness Committee at Loma Linda University. I've also had the privilege of co-teaching a doctorate level course, alongside the Director for the Doctorate in Marriage and Family Therapy.
I am double board certified as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor, and am licensed as a supervisor for LMFT and LPC, for the state of Texas. I'm also working on my AAMFT supervisor certificate, as well.
I am a Clinical Member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapists. I am also a Founding Member and serve on the Education Committee for the Texas Association for Marriage and Family Therapists. Currently, I am the Student President for the Texas Student Association for Marriage and Family Therapists.
I work with adults and couples, who are highly motivated for change and want to better manage stress, have healthier relationships, improved self-care, and balance. I also work with clients, who are living with a form of chronic illness, recovering from addiction, managing depression/anxiety, and PTSD from medical or childhood trauma. I also specialize working with women living with pelvic floor dysfunction.
Because I do not believe we are cookie cutter, I don't try to fit the client into a specific therapeutic model. Rather, I adjust the therapy to the needs of the client. It is important that each client feel supported, encouraged, and empowered. I also provide the opportunity to learn new skills that you can apply to other areas of your life.
I tend to use Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness Training, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Art Therapy, and Experiential Therapy, using a biopsychosocial-spiritual lens.
Whether you are wanting to work on your own personal goals or needing help to overcome past hurts, therapy can certainly help identify and unblock barriers that prevent you from achieving peace, balance, and emotional well-being.
When I am not working or studying, I enjoy spending time with my family, a pet bunny, and reading. I have been married for 28 years, have 3 children ( 2 of whom are in college). I also love coffee and cinnamon tea.
I look forward to working with you soon.
