I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at Baylor University and then a Master of Education in Counseling from University of Houston. I served as a Counseling Intern at Rice University Center for Career Development (CCD) where I provided career counseling services in addition to counseling services for diverse individuals experiencing Relationship Issues, Family of Origin Conflict, Career Confusion, Low Self-Esteem/Confidence, Anxiety, Stress, Depression, and Life Transition Struggles. I collaborated with other counseling staff regularly to promote our services and to provide group sessions to students.
I later went on to provide Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy for children on the Autism Spectrum, where I formulated comprehensive treatment plans, provided therapy, tracked the data and analyzed it. After some time, I left ABA therapy to focus on providing therapy to adults at a private practice and a non-profit agency. I worked with diverse clients with various presenting concerns and traumas and helped them process their experiences and achieve their goals.
My experiences and education have shaped who I am and my approach to counseling. But I also pull from my unique life experiences to help inform our work, be more authentic, and empathetic. I am dedicated to providing you compassion, empathy, unconditional acceptance, and a safe space to work together in achieving your goals. I will support you as you process your experiences and feelings, and increase your self-awareness, which will in turn lead you to where you want to be.
