10 years of experience

Do you need help getting thru difficult situations in life? Life can be a little bitter, like chocolate, but with the right coping skills, anything can be achieved or worked through with time and patience. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I am passionate about helping people develop skills to live a full, successful life. I offer remote telehealth sessions throughout the state of Texas. I have over 10 years of clinical experience helping individuals with anxiety, depression, stress, and relationship issues. I have worked extensively with adolescents and behavioral mental health. I completed by bachelor's in social work from Our Lady of the Lake University. I have a master's in social work from University of Texas San Antonio and a master's in forensic psychology from Southern New Hampshire University. My experience also includes helping individuals develop specific coping skills for a variety of situations, including everyday activities. I believe every person deserves an individualized plan specific to their needs, and I help people discover their underlying concerns. I am certified in trauma informed care and have a CCTP certification (certified clinical trauma professional). I first decided to become a therapist in high school when I realized I excelled at getting people to discuss their issues. I became intrigued to discover how I could help people cope with difficult situations. I have experience in the child welfare system, working with waiver programs for disabled children, psychosocial assessments for mental health, and crisis intervention therapy. I have more availability at website located below. I look forward to helping you find a successful fulfilling life.

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

Sessions are client lead. After discussing confidentiality, no-show policy, and contact information, I allow the client to discuss what they seek in therapy and current issues. I help the client develop an initial treatment plan and focus on goals that can be achievable through measured means. I believe in reflective listening and helping the client focus thought processes to further insight into present-day situations. I start the process by asking the patient about current life situations and developing a relationship along the way through empathy and reflection.

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

I excel at helping individuals identify goals and developing solutions that help the client meet goals within a specified parameter of time. Also, I help clients develop coping skills specified to their specific needs that are effective in helping them manage situations. Success is the client facing a situation utilizing the tools developed from mutual communication from sessions. Clients should feel empowered to take steps toward seeking happiness and fulfilled lives. Clients can expect to develop skills to deal with symptoms and begin recognizing triggers.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I’ve been using CBT in my practice for the past ten years. It’s helped dozens of clients challenge reoccurring thoughts and manage their anxiety. We’ll use CBT to recognize how your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors influence each other. We’ll then use that knowledge to change your thinking patterns, which will help you lead a less anxious and stressed life.

Couples Counseling

I have been using couples therapy to help people in relationships develop better communication methods and coping skills to improve their connection with each other, family, and friends.

Solution Focused Brief Treatment

I excel at helping clients create goals and steps to attain their goals.

Trauma Informed Care

I have trained and currently have a CCTP (certified clinical trauma professional) certification.

Grief Therapy

I have helped individuals with recent and prolonged grief process their feelings to improve their lives and coping with daily activities.
