As a therapist, I am passionate about the work I do with my clients. I have experience working at the Houston Area Women's Center, where I worked alongside survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. Since August of 2013, I have been at the West Houston Counseling Center (WHCC), where I work with children eight and above, teens and adults. I completed my graduate student practicum at WHCC, and I am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor-Intern under the supervision of Stephanie Legendre, MA., RPT, LPC-S.
My theoretical approach has a strong foundation using client-centered techniques. With this approach, it allows for me to meet the client where they are at with no judgment. I also use an integrated approach to therapy, tailoring the techniques used specifically for what meets the client's needs.
I specialize in working with clients who are struggling with depression, anxiety (generalized anxiety, social anxiety, etc.), lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) issues, trauma (medical or non-medical), and stress management.
I graduated from the University of Saint Thomas with my Masters of Education in Clinical Counseling in the Spring of 2014. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Houston with a Bachelor's of Arts in Psychology minoring in Human Growth and Development. I am a member of the Texas Counseling Association (TCA), Texas Association for Multicultural Counseling and Development (TexAMCD), and Texas Association for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Issues in Counseling (TALBTIC).
