Great to meet you!
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas and also licensed in Michigan. I earned a Master of Science in Counseling degree with a concentration in Mental Health from the University of Phoenix in 2016. I specialize in the areas of anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and family issues. I have experience providing individual, group, family and couples therapy in the areas of abuse/neglect, victimization, trauma, coping skills, forgiveness, self-esteem, conflict resolution.
A bit about my approach to therapy
Everyone is different and therefore my therapeutic approach is eclectic. This approach incorporates a variety of therapeutic principles in order to meet the specific needs of each individual client. I specifically enjoy using Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Person-Centered Therapy. The ultimate goal of your counseling experience is to acquire the tools to promote positive change for personal growth and to positively cope with life events.
What you can expect from our first session
My counseling style is pretty laid back. I have been described as supportive, caring, empathetic, and compassionate. I like to focus on identifying your strengths and helping you to maximize them to overcome your obstacles. I'm here to help you sort through the things that are difficult right now, and offer you a safe place to be open and honest without fear of judgment. You have taken the first and most important step by reaching out for help.
