Great to meet you!
I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Texas at Austin and my master's in education from the Universtiy of Houston-Victoria where I focused on clinical and mental health counseling. In my 3 years experience, I have supported adolescents and their families in addressing issues related to anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem issues, parental struggles, lgbtq+ issues, and career exploration. Most recently, I've began working with adults to manage their anxiety and depression.
A bit about my approach to therapy
I would like to think of my foundational theoretical orientation as solution focused but I include other therapies to meet clients where they are. I am integrative due to my usage of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy , Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and techniques from other theories.
What you can expect from our first session
You have made the first step in inquiring about your mental health and I want to be the first to commend you on that. You and I will work together to cultivate the best plan for you to accomplish your goals.
