Many people today, from children to adults, experience adversity in various areas of their lives that can have negative effects on their ability to be successful. Sometimes you may find it difficult to understand how to cope and respond in an appropriate way. It is my goal to help you understand these adversities, your response to them, and how they affect you. I strive to help you learn strategies and find the skills you may need to navigate life and reach your fullest potential. Counseling can be a great, safe avenue to explore emotions and discuss issues in a productive healthy manner. Understanding thoughts and feelings may become the ideal catalyst to begin the change you desire. I will use a variety of therapeutic approaches in order to best bring out the desired result. I look forward to coming along side you and your family on this journey to understand life.

I have spent the last 15 years working with children in education from 3 year-olds to seniors in high school. I enjoy being a part of their “ah-ha” moments and teaching them new things. I was a sign language interpreter with CFISD and I have a passion for the Deaf community as well. I graduated with my bachelor’s in biblical counseling from the College of Biblical Studies in Houston, Texas and received my Masters in Professional Counseling from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. I am also a certified interpreter through the Board of Evaluation of Interpreters (BEI).

I am currently accepting new clients age 5 and up.
