"My focus is the help individuals heal, energize and become aware of their inner strengths. I’ll achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns and customizing a treatment plan. "
Recognizing when you need someone to talk to is the first step in your journey to being the best version of “you”. Life does not come with an instruction manual, as a Licensed Professional Counselor-Associate I am here to help you discover the path to navigate through some of the daily struggles of life. I’ve always felt the calling to help others and decided 5 years ago, the time was now for me to be of service to others in the best way I know how. It was then I decided to pursue a career in counseling.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a minor in Sociology from University of Houston and a Masters in Clinical Psychology from Capella University. I am trained in working with clients ages 14+, including couples, family and parenting.
Listening and being empathetic to the clients’ individual needs are a primary focus to understanding the needs of each client. We are all different and I believe in treating clients with respect and care. Finding the counselor who best fits your personality and needs is vital to a successful partnership.
I am excited to start this journey with you!!
" I am a native Houstonian with over 15 years of experience in education, counseling, positive psychology and studying human behavior. My heart beats for educators, black mamas, and black & brown children. My function is to be a guiding healer & support with the whole child, the whole parent/family, and the whole educator."
I WELCOME YOU!
I am deeply passionate about healthy & thriving ecosystems in education, as well as mentally whole communities. I’m an advocate of body kindness, mental health care, life's play, creating safe & brave spaces for LGBTQIA+ youth in schools, and intuitively sitting with communities to help heal in the spaces in between through mental health care.
Today my soul’s work is manifesting through listening and looking at what’s here now to help heal as a therapist. Additionally, I engage in healing rituals, yoga + meditation, deep rest, sacred movement, unconditional love, counseling, sound healing, and being in life’s ease & grace. As a registered yoga teacher, I enjoy combining holistic wellness practices with mental health care for maximum whole body, mind, soul benefits.
I have recently transitioned full-time into mental health care as a Licensed Professional Counselor-Associate. I am currently developing my mental health & wellness practice,
Root + Yoke Wellness that will be a fully functioning private practice upon completion of my LPC-Associate.
I obtained Master of Arts in Counseling from Houston Graduate School of Counseling. I currently hold a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Child Development from the Houston Baptist University. I am a Certified School Counselor in the State of Texas through Region 4. My formal education has prepared me to counsel individuals, groups, couples, families, adolescents, and children.
I am a member in good standing of the Texas Counseling Association.
My counseling approach is based on a combination of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Reality/Choice Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Solution-Focused Brief Therapy is centered on the positive notion that people are knowledgeable and capable of constructing resolutions that can enrich their lives. You will have the chance to define your opportunities for growth, set goals, and offer feedback.
The objective of Reality/Choice Therapy is to assist people in becoming more effective in meeting their needs; to enable clients to get reconnected with the people they have chosen to put into their quality worlds and teach clients choice theory. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy involves a learning method where clients attain and exercise new skills; absorb new ways of thinking, and more operative ways of managing problems. I look forward to growing with you and learning more about how I can support your needs & growth.
