Introduction

As a clinician, I am committed to the well-being of all my clients, going above and beyond to accommodate their unique needs and nurture their individuality.

Knowing how difficult life can be, I work diligently in helping my clients find their own answers. This is achieved by tailoring my approach to therapy according to each individual's unique needs. I have a passion for serving diverse clientele with circumstances unique to their own lives. This has been an amazing journey of learning and sharing. I look forward to continuing that journey with you as we work towards finding the answers that will improve your quality of life.


Clinical Practice

I practice in the greater Dallas-Fort-Worth area, utilizing an eclectic and holistic approach in my work. Some of the therapeutic strategies integrated in my practice include, but are not limited to: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution- Focused Therapy, Family Systems, Adlerian and Rogerian approaches.

I have worked in this field for over ten years, in various settings from Inpatient hospital settings, crisis stabilization, drug, and alcohol rehabilitation facilities, and community outreach work. I have trained crisis line operators and given various presentations.

Education and Training

I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Family and Child Studies from Northern Illinois University. I proceeded to earn a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from Adler University (formerly known as Adler School of Professional Psychology), a Master of Arts degree in Industrial-Organizational Psychology, and a Certificate in Substance Abuse Counseling at graduate level- all from Adler University in Chicago, Illinois.
