I am passionate about working with children, adolescents and adults that are struggling with grief and loss, trauma, anxiety, and relationship problems. I earned my Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Houston.
Some of my past experiences include working children, adolescents and families facing grief and loss at Bo’s Place. I have also provided therapy services to children and adults at an area women’s center. This experience helped me to cultivate an understanding of trauma, family violence, and sexual assault. Trauma, whether recent or further in the past, consisting of emotional, physical, sexual, or a mix of assaults, can have long-lasting consequences. Recurring thoughts and avoidance of situations compromise the ability to live fully. The betrayal of trust can affect how we approach relationships. Realizing there is much more to us than trauma requires safe, empathetic, and skilled guidance and support.
I trust in a strengths-based, client-centered approach with clients. I utilize play therapy techniques, mindfulness, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), talk therapy and a variety of other expressive techniques. I welcome becoming a resource for you, putting my training and skills to work as part of a professional relationship. My passion is expressed through the creation of a safe space where you are heard, and it is my honor to accompany you on your journey of growth and healing.
A large city can feel lonely, particularly when coping with stress, anxiety or depression. Preoccupation with your situation, whether school, money, career, parenting, relationships, other concerns, or a blend of these, is common. I believe no one needs to face troubles alone, but sometimes we require professional distance to truly discuss and address our situation.
I work with children, adolescents, individuals, and families facing issues surrounding: ADHD, Anxiety, Behavior Problems, Codependency, Family Violence & Domestic Abuse, Grief & Loss, Trauma, Relationships Problems, Peer Pressure, Self Esteem
