"I believe you have all you need to become empowered to create necessary change and lead an intentional and fulfilled life. Empowerment is achieved through compassion, connection, and guidance, elicited from your perceptions of reality and desired goals. As you embrace your own resilience, value, and self-esteem we begin the healing process. I believe this process starts with the connection of mind, body, and soul which enables you to deeply connect with others. My goal is to help you grow from struggles, heal from pain, and move forward to a place where you are living a life which you love."
Feeling safe and secure enough to reveal those parts we spend so much time hiding is possible when we work together creating space for vulnerability and transformation. It sometimes takes a safe space to break-through, healing from impossible expectations, and empowering deep and lasting change which builds confidence in our best selves.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Supervisor born and raised in Houston, Texas. I earned my Master of Social Work from the University of Houston Graduate School of Social Work where I learned to "be the change you want to see in the world" (Gandhi).
I have worked as a therapist for adolescents and adults with depression, anxiety, trauma, psychosis, and dual diagnoses in private practice as well as inpatient and outpatient hospitals. I am currently in training for certification in Trauma Focused Equine Assisted Psychotherapy by Natural Lifemanship which emphasizes the importance of connected relationships with others, whether human or animal.
I am the mother of four adult children, and I enjoy listening to music, reading, relaxing on the water, traveling, being outside, and loving on my rescue pups.
