I received my Bachelors of Science in Human Development and Family Studies from Texas Tech University and my Masters of Arts in Professional Counseling from Texas State University, with a focus on relational therapy. Previously, I provided counseling services at Vida Clinic to adults, couples, & adolescents, and had the privilege of creating and facilitating different psychoeducation groups for parents and graduate students. I received comprehensive trainings from various clinicians and consulted and collaborated with multiple therapists and supervisors within the organization. I am also certified in the Gottman Method Level 1, which is an approach highly regarded for couples therapy.
For nearly a decade now, I have been serving individuals with diverse backgrounds and needs through non-profit companies. My experience working with adolescents in the foster system, combined with assisting vulnerable populations experiencing housing disrepair, has informed my view on trauma and shaped the way I help others heal. Throughout my professional career, personal journey, and education, I have witnessed how powerful and life-changing therapy can be.
Although education and experience is vital in this career, I believe our human connection within the counseling relationship is of upmost importance. A healthy and trusting relationship provides ample space for us to effectively and efficiently release unhelpful blocks and partner towards your highest aspirations. I cultivate therapeutic relationships with trust, empathy, and a sincere commitment to helping you feel seen and heard, as those qualities are allies in our navigation of your self-discovery, healing, and growth. Therapy is my true calling and I will feel honored to walk alongside you on your journey.
In my personal time I enjoy working out, exploring Austin, and traveling as much as time allows. I have three sweet fur babies whom I love dearly, and a supportive partner whom I am grateful for every day.
