Needless to say, we don't live in a perfect world and we all need a little guidance navigating the curves of life. I am HERE to HELP! I am an eclectic counselor, which simply means that I will use any & all techniques I've learned to get you back on track and where you think you belong. We will establish goals and explore ways to make those objectives happen for you. I'm ultimately here to listen to you and help you accomplish your purpose. I thrive on learning and excel at teaching you to become your very best.
I graduated from Our Lady of the Lake University specializing in the Family & Marriage Therapy Program. As a counselor, I prioritize a gentle, compassionate and goals-oriented approach in addressing a variety of issues: addiction, trauma and abuse, family instability, depression, anger, self-esteem and academic and/or professional exploration.
I'm a culturally diversified counselor whose focus is to work with individuals and families in order to promote optimum mental health, with an emphasis on prevention. My office hours are Mon/Tues/Fri in the afternoon/evening and Wed/Thurs in the evening. I accept most health insurance plans.
