About Me

I am a LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) in Texas with over 11 years of experience working as a therapist and life coach. Through my private practice and contract work I have worked with a diverse population of clients with a wide range of issues like emotional and physical trauma, anxiety, depression, substance abuse , and ADHD. I also help individuals in a life situation in which they are looking for deeper meaning and searching for their life's purpose as their current course feels empty and devoid of direction. Most often a significant event (death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job, trauma, etc.) has motivated them to find their life's passion. I experienced this at age 48 and left a highly lucrative but mundane restaurant management position to pursue a career in which I could genuinely help and serve others through counseling therapy.

My counseling approach has continued to evolve through the years as my clients (my greatest teachers) have educated me to listen mindfully and tailor my therapeutic plan to their individual needs. I draw from a variety of modalities including cognitive behavioral. client-centered, solution-focused, reality therapy, and energy therapies including the Emotional Freedom Technique. The course of therapy and treatment plan will be customized to your specific and unique needs. I am a strong proponent of meditation and mindfulness and encourage these if the client shows interest.

The fact that you are seeking help shows courage and openness and a desire to change in a meaningful and lasting way that can positively revolutionize and enrich your life. I can assure you that you are worthy of such an endeavor. I have never looked back or regretted any changes that I have undertaken since joining the counseling profession and I would be honored to be your therapist and help you transcend your issues!

I look forward to assist you on your healing journey! Thank you!
