Licensed Professional Counselor
Certified Grief Recovery Specialist

I am a fully licensed psychotherapist with a private practice in Houston, Texas near the Cypress area. Over 18 years as a wife and being a mother, has shown me the challenges and grief that often comes as we strive to balance our sometimes-stressful lives and relationships. I have been a devoted Christian for over 22 years and I enjoy integrating Christian principles when any individual desires to have this as part of their treatment.

Treatment Approach

My areas of expertise include providing solutions for developing healthy self-esteem, guiding recovery from trauma and loss, teaching healthy ways to manage challenging mental health symptoms and facilitating growth in relationship skills. I will work alongside you to help you achieve your goals. My commitment is to use compassion and understanding as I help you build on your strengths and guide you towards the personal growth you are committed to accomplishing. I will support you by offering practical feedback and assisting you through your personal life challenges and create a highly personalized approach tailored specifically for you.
