I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern, under the supervision of Kelly Peyton, MA, LPC-S, RPT-S, CCTP. I received a Masters of Arts in Counseling from Houston Graduate School of Theology and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Speech Pathology from Texas Christian University.
Many inspirations through my own life have led me to purse working with children. As a child my own dyslexia and ADHD diagnosis challenged me to develop new skills, grow my self-esteem, and cultivate different coping mechanisms than my peers. I am extremely passionate in helping children, just as so many wonderful people have helped me throughout my life.
My professional experience includes individual and group therapy, assessments, and parent education in a private practice setting. My focus is working with young children and their families. Depending on my client’s needs, I primarily operate from a Play Therapy or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach. Currently I am pursuing my Registered Play Therapy License, in which my knowledge and love of play therapy continues to evolve.
I firmly believe in the power of a strong therapeutic relationship as the foundation for growth. Additionally, through collaborating with the child’s parents I hope to enhance a positive transformation throughout the entire family. My goal is to create a safe environment for children to freely express, flourish, and heal.
When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling and playing with my dog.
