4 years of experience

Hi! I have my M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Liberty University and am licensed in the state of Texas as a Licensed Professional Counselor. I am in my second year of acquiring a Ph.D. in Psychology from Liberty University. ​ I have worked in North Texas over the last few years in private practice groups and as a therapist and clinical director at a residential treatment facility for adolescents with substance abuse and mental health diagnoses. I am trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and have extensive experience treating trauma, anxiety, depression and mood disorders. I have worked with adults, couples and adolescents through various challenges of life and have a passion for continuing to serve this population. ​ I believe that there is immense healing found in counseling as it provides a safe place for individuals to explore their unique journeys and reach their full potential. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

As your counselor, my approach is rooted in empathy, respect, and collaboration. Our sessions will be tailored specifically to your needs, guided by evidence-based techniques. I am committed to understanding your unique story, perspective, and goals. Together, we will work towards fostering self-awareness, enhancing coping skills, and empowering you to make positive changes in your life.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

As a therapist, I utilize a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Narrative Therapy to support my clients in their journey toward mental well-being. CBT forms the foundation, helping clients identify and challenge negative thought patterns while learning practical coping strategies. In parallel, DBT fosters emotional regulation, mindfulness, and interpersonal effectiveness to manage intense emotions and enhance relationships. Additionally, Narrative Therapy empowers clients to rewrite their life stories, externalizing problems and emphasizing their strengths and resilience.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Empathy is one of my most significant strengths as a therapist. I genuinely put myself in my clients' shoes, striving to understand their feelings and experiences from their perspective. By empathizing with their struggles, I can provide empathetic responses that validate their emotions and experiences. This empathy also helps me tailor my approach to each individual, recognizing that each client is unique and requires a personalized therapeutic journey.
