I'm here to help my clients overcome their struggles and better manage their responses to life stressors.

My Therapy Style

I consider myself a trauma-informed, mindfulness, cognitive-based, person-centered therapist. I strive to provide a safe space for clients to feel comfortable. Using EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) the client can identify their negative beliefs and process past traumas. I'm here to help my clients overcome their struggles and better manage their responses to life stressors. Using Mindfulness clients connect to their calm selves. They can tap into being intentional about self-regulating, using grounding, intentional deep breathing, and other self-help tools.

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

At a young age, I knew I wanted to help others and give back. I feel I have been very blessed throughout my life. During hardships and struggles in my life, there have always been people there to help and support me. I want to be that support for others and remind them that we were not meant to journey this world alone.

What are your interests outside of work?

Outside of work, you can find me getting lost in a good romantic comedy book or watching a movie. I also consider myself a foodie. I love discovering new restaurants or enjoying a meal at a place I know.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I try and stay connected with family and friends. I enjoy FaceTime or phone calls with them. I can share my wins and struggles of the day and that helps me stay grounded.

What book have you read more than once?

I would say the Bible is the book that I turn to for guidance, comfort, and peace.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

My favorite nonprofit organization is Catholic Charities I admire their work to help families facing the hardships of poverty.

How do you recharge?

I recharge with a solid morning routine that includes a good workout on my Peloton and wrapping up with meditation.

Do you have any pets?

I had a Bichon Frise who was my 15-year fur baby, he was my first and best roommate to date, and moved across Texas with me.
