I am Licensed Professional Counselor Associate supervised by Denise Smith. I have loved in The Houston area for 42 years and am excited to serve the community in Cypress and surrounding areas. I have a degree in special education and I am certified to teach high school English, which I have done for the past 16 years. While teaching I completed my Masters in Counseling from Houston Baptist University and fulfilled my life long dream of becoming a professional counselor. I have years of experience working with adults and adolescents as they deal with depression, anxiety, self harm, grief, trauma, and the issues related to caregiving.

 

I believe that everyone is unique and I am careful to specialize individual treatment plans to meet the needs of each client . I use an eclectic approach to therapy which includes CBT, Solution Focused, Trauma focused therapy, DBT as well as EMDR.  

I endeavor to create a calm, welcoming, and peaceful place for people to feel safe, empowered and encouraged. It is my pleasure to help clients meet their goals for strong mental Heath and relationship building .
