As a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor and National Certified Counselor, I am compassionate toward your needs and situation.  I utilize creative approaches and methods that make therapy fun and easy to maneuver. Appointments are tailored to each individual and/or couple's needs to meet your current situation. Counseling entails providing you with a unique perspective, homework at times and tools to enhance your recovery. I provide a positive environment to help motivate you to overcome whatever obstacle you may be facing. As a Certified Cognitive Behavior Therapist, I help you identify the thoughts and emotions that are weighing you down and learn how to reframe them. We will work together to identify and implement healthy coping skills to manage and embrace your life with ease. I will help you learn to live in the moment and accept the losses that have occurred in your life and work through them, one layer at a time. Additional training and areas of certification include:

  • Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP)
  • Certified Grief Recovery Specialist (CGRS)
  • Certified Compassion Fatigue Professional (CCFP)
  • Certified Cognitive Behavioral Therapist (CBTC)

In addition to counseling and psychotherapy, I provide counselor supervision to Licensed Professional Counselor-Interns (LPC-Intern) and field practicum internship students completing their graduate degree from a College or University. Currently, I teach at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, TX in the College of Criminal Justice and Criminology.  I have also taught at Lone Star College in Houston, TX. 

I am a member of the American Counseling Association, Association for Counselor Education and Supervision, Texas Counseling Association, Association for Creative Counselors, International Association of Trauma Professionals, and Texas Association for Counselor Education and Supervision.
