Supervised by Teddy Nobel, M.A., LPC, LCDC
The desire to help others has always been a significant piece of my personality and lifestyle. I strive to create a comfortable and inviting environment so I can hear one’s life story, goals, heartaches and tough life decisions. As a counselor, I hope to walk with my client toward greater self-awareness through his/her life experiences that lead to increased confidence, self-esteem, independence, mental health, and the capacity to effectively navigate the complex challenges of life.
I enjoy helping individuals work through or improve common issues including: Marital and relationship problems, communication skills, anxiety and depressive disorders, life transitions, addiction, behavioral issues, coping skills, emotional disturbance, peer relationships, self-harming, self-esteem building, trauma conflicts, and family conflicts. I have built my practice working specifically with individuals such as adolescents and adults, couples/marriage counseling, parenting and family therapy. I facilitate a weekly adolescent group. If you would like for your adolescent to experience group with me and have more questions, please contact me directly via email.
Everything Happens For A Reason:
There is something that comes out of every struggle, every life transition, and every heartache that can help one grow and learn from. There is peace that coincides with knowing there must be something to gain from tough experiences. I am interested in helping others explore and process these times to get through it as a stronger individual.
Attitudes Are Contagious:
I believe as humans we are strongly affected by our surroundings and environment. I believe there are times we are unaware as to how much we are being affected and I help individuals find the strength to gain back control of emotions that may have been lost or pushed aside.
Professional Background & Credentials:
I spent years exploring what route I could take to fulfill my strong pull to be a “helper,” and have finally found my home in therapy. I graduated with my Bachelors of Arts from Texas State University in 2008 with a degree in Mass Communications and a minor in Psychology. After years working with children in the school system as a teacher, I realized my passion to help was not being met. With experience through my graduate program and a yearlong internship at a family crisis trauma center, I gained knowledge and a continuing passion for the good in others as well as my desire to continue to grow as a proactive therapist. I received my Master’s from Sam Houston State University in Mental Clinical Health Counseling and am a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern. I am also a National Certified Counselor and a member of the Texas Counseling Association. My clinical supervisor is Teddy Nobel, M.A., LPC, LCDC.
I am the mother of four rambunctious boys who keep me busy and active. I love to be outdoors spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy photography, music, writing and traveling.
