My experience includes addressing mental health issues with children, adults & families.
A great quote says that without a goal, you can't score. The same concept is taken a step further in the Bible, where it says that without a vision, people perish. It's easy to overlook the importance of courageous goals and bold, new visions--that can create a new quality of life for ourselves and those we love.

I got my Bachelor’s of Science at University of Texas at Dallas, double majoring in Psychology and Child Development.
Have you even felt powerless? Maybe you’ve felt it in a relationship, or in your family, or at your job. Maybe at times you've felt powerless against your own mind. I believe that there’s a deep well of power that exists inside you. All you have to do is find it and reconnect to it. I would be honored to take that journey of self-discovery with you. You are far more powerful than you know, and I hope to help you explore your power.

I work with emerging young adults, and those processing how to actually adult with the age group 16-30. I feel that my purpose has always been to advocate for those that haven't quite found their voice yet, as well as advocating for those that may have lost their voice somewhere down the line in their lives. I use CBT/REBT techniques to challenge my clients to dig deep into their inner thoughts, and in return this allows them to slowly begin to change those toxic thinking patterns. Continuously helping others realize that regardless of their struggles, life is still just beginning for you!

Well, thankfully I am glad you decided that at this point, you are ready to take the next steps to your healing journey.
