I am an experienced LPC Associate who is dedicated towards helping people overcome life's obstacles and move towards a path of resilience. I am a passionate and empathetic therapist with strong counseling abilities and an understanding of interpersonal familial relationships.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate (clinically supervised by Sheri Collinsworth Cobarruvias, MS, LPC-S, NCC) and I have over 10 years of experience in the field of mental health. I hold a bachelor’s degree in child development and a master’s degree in Professional Counseling. I am a Certified Trauma Practitioner, Certified School Counselor, and have received specialized training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I have worked in a variety of clinical settings. I have experience working with children, adolescents, teens, families, and adults. I find great joy in helping people overcome the struggles of life and aim to create a safe space where clients feel supported and comfortable expressing their thoughts and feelings. I am passionate about supporting individuals on their mental health journey. Through clinical experience, compassion, and empathy, I support and assist those willing to make a positive difference in their lives. I pride myself in providing a safe and supportive space for my clients. I am a person-centered therapist and incorporate Cognitive Behavior Therapy(CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), mindfulness practices, and solution focused strategies in my therapeutic modalities. Though I strive to tailor my approach towards the unique needs of each client.
