I believe that every person wants to and is capable of living a fulfilling and positive life; they only need to remove the barriers. I am a person-centered therapist, meaning I will meet you where you are at, respect who you are as a person, and work with you to create individualized treatment goals.
My practice is grounded in attachment theory and my areas of expertise and passions include trauma, family of origin work, C-PTSD, somatic therapy, drug and alcohol abuse, perinatal mental health and relational therapy.
I have specialized training in EMDR, Trauma-informed yoga, Perinatal mental health, mindfulness techniques, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.
I completed my Master's Degree in Community Counseling at the University of Houston-Victoria. I have since worked in a variety of settings, including residential care, drug rehabilitation centers, outpatient therapy, and children's therapy.
