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.

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.
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.
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.
I would say the Bible is the book that I turn to for guidance, comfort, and peace.
My favorite nonprofit organization is Catholic Charities I admire their work to help families facing the hardships of poverty.
I recharge with a solid morning routine that includes a good workout on my Peloton and wrapping up with meditation.
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.
