About Me

I have been working as a certified Counselor since 2017. I specialize in helping people identify and achieve their personal goals by coping with the issues that are causing them distress, anxiety, and stress. I take great pride in the progress and success of my clients, and look forward to helping you.

Mission

Serving and working as an therapist is one of the most rewarding accomplishments of my life. It's deeply meaningful to me to witness and facilitate the journey of mending and strengthening the relationship between mind, body, and self. In our sessions, you'll discover my approach is inclusive, empathetic, supportive, and focused on achievable goals. I'm here to meet you exactly where you are in your journey, not judging you throughout the process.

I would say the primary focus of my practice is the cultivation and nurturing of hope. I firmly believe that hope is the cornerstone of any meaningful change. It is this sense of hope that empowers and emboldens individuals to embrace transformation. In my role, I hold this hope for you, even in moments when you might find it challenging to do so yourself. This belief in the potential for change, fueled by hope, is what gives people the strength to evolve and grow.

My aim is to assist you in reaching your fullest potential, not through harsh methods, but through nurturing and supportive strategies. My personal experiences, coupled with professional certifications, have equipped me to be your guide and ally on this path. As we collaborate, challenges with eating and body image become gateways to deeper understanding and self-improvement. We transform these struggles from adversaries into opportunities for personal growth and self-development, all within a framework of hopeful and positive change.

My Story

As a counselor specializing in areas like disordered eating, addictive behaviors, depression, anxiety, and relationship dynamics, I bring a diverse set of skills to our sessions. But beyond these specialties, I'm capable of providing support to a wide range of mental health challenges that those who seek my support might be facing. My approach in therapy is deeply rooted in hope - a hope that is steadfast and integral to how I support and connect with my clients. I firmly believe in the transformative power of counseling, a belief born out of witnessing remarkable changes in the lives of many. This journey of change is not just theoretical to me; it's a reality I've seen unfold time and again.

My own path into counseling began in my youth. With my own personal experience with depression, anxiety, uncertainty of my own identify or who I am, along with using a variety of different maladaptive coping skills throughout my life, I have personally experienced the profound impact that therapy can provide. I was inspired to offer the same lifeline of care and understanding that I received after going through my own healing journey after attempting suicide when I was younger. This calling stuck with me through high school at Lake Highlands High School in Dallas to Texas Tech University, and then back to Dallas, where I completed my master's degree in counseling at Dallas Theological Seminary.

When going through my dark times, going on my own therapeutic journey was a powerful step towards not just overcoming challenges, but also it was the exact thing that helped me in discovering a deeper understanding and appreciation of myself. My role as your counselor is to provide a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space where you can explore, understand, and ultimately transform your struggles. Whether it's managing anxiety, healing from past trauma, or navigating the complexities of relationships, I'm here to guide and support you every step of the way. Together, we will work towards not just alleviating immediate concerns but also building lasting strategies for resilience and well-being. So, if you're feeling ready to take this transformative step, I'm here, ready to embark on this journey with you towards a healthier, more fulfilling life.

Now, let me ask you - are you feeling ready to confront and reshape the struggles you're facing? Are you prepared to harness resilience and emerge with a newfound strength? If you're nodding your head, I'm here to tell you that our collaborative work can be the catalyst for that transformation, guiding you towards a healthier, more fulfilled version of yourself.

Whatever challenges you're grappling with, I'm not just ready; I'm eager to walk alongside you in this journey. Life's hurdles shouldn't be roadblocks to your dreams. Together, in therapy, we can chart a course back to your aspirations and goals. So, why not take that bold first step today? Reach out, and let's embark on this journey toward unlocking your fullest potential.
