"Fear is a reaction. Courage is a decision.” --Winston Churchill
Life is complicated. It can be exciting and beautiful and also include a great amount of frustration, confusion and sadness. Sometimes you can feel stuck in deep emotional pain. You may try to fix your problems and move forward on your own because you think you should be able to do it yourself. Even when this place is painful, it takes courage to get out of your comfort zone and ask for help. It takes strength to make the decision to reach out and talk to an unbiased professional.
I am a licensed professional counselor and I have been counseling individual adults, couples, and children for over 15 years. I have my master’s degree from the University of Houston. I have worked at a non-profit agency since 2004 and I have extensive experience in working with depression, anxiety, marriage and family conflict, communication problems, divorce, grief and loss and life transitions. I also have experience with substance abuse and past trauma.
I’m open and non-judgmental, and I will provide a warm, safe, and accepting environment for you to share with me. I would like to guide you towards getting relief from emotional pain and gaining clarity about your situation, while learning more about yourself. With counseling, you can learn how to manage difficult feelings, have more satisfying relationships, and feel better about yourself and your decision making. You will likely see me as a caring and empathetic listener who is deeply invested in you.
I encourage you to reach out and make an appointment with me. I look forward to meeting you soon and working with you!

Communication problems and disconnection
Communication can be frustrating. It can be hard to feel heard and connected in our significant relationships. It’s often a challenge to work through disagreements or arguments and come to a place of resolution and peace. I help children, individual adults, and couples communicate more effectively with the goal of feeling more respected, confident, and understood.
