About me

I am an experienced licensed professional counselor who is dedicated to helping adolescents and adults cope with anxiety, depression, and relationship issues.

After spending 25 years in the legal field, I returned to school to pursue a career in counseling and earned a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling from the University of Houston-Clear Lake. My desire to go into counseling stems from my personal experience of witnessing others struggle with mental health issues.

I provide individual and group therapy with both adolescents and adults. My experience includes working in psychiatric hospitals, residential treatment center, and juvenile detention. I practice using cognitive behavior therapy, solution-focused, and strengths-based approaches, all tailored to her clients’ needs.

I enjoy reading different modalities and interventions for treating trauma and attachment theory. During my free time, I enjoy treasure hunting at thrift stores, gardening, traveling, and spending time with my family and dogs (Witten the lab, Dizzy the Jack Russell, and Beast the mixed breed).
