I am currently pursuing my Doctorate of Professional Counseling.
During my two years in graduate school, I worked with a non-profit organization which helped hundreds of young women with the challenges of growing up in today's culture. I assisted in STD testing, educated on sexual issues, and had numerous counseling conversations concerning depression, post-abortion recovery, drug abuse, and spousal abuse.
Since moving to Houston in 2007, I have continued to develop my work with teens and young women and have expanded my counseling repertoire. I worked at a non-profit in Houston for several years. While there I assisted people through a wide variety of issues, such as depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, parent/teen communication, grief/loss, bipolar, and anger management. I find I relate easily and openly with all ages and types of people.
In 2008, I began speaking in schools, conferences, churches, and universities all over the state of Texas educating both younger and older groups on the issues of dating violence and sexting. In November of 2009, I became a Certified Anger Resolution Therapist (CART) and have since helped numerous individuals and families overcome anger-related issues. I began studying and growing my understanding of the Enneagram in the fall of 2016. In March 2019 I received certification in the Enneagram Spectrum Training with Dr. Jerry Wagner.
I am a member of the Texas Counseling Association.
On days I am out of the office, I enjoy traveling with my husband, spending meaningful time with my daughter, reading, running, and savoring a good cup of coffee with friends.
