My Approach to Counseling:
It takes such courage to share your story with others. You do everything you can to navigate the struggles in life and find that sometimes everything just isn't enough. You are enough. You are resilient. And I'm thrilled to walk alongside you as you discover how you want to handle obstacles that illicit emotions so strong they feel impossible. Counseling can be a place where you rediscover your best, and silence the noise that distracts you from living in abundance, love, joy and peace.

I also work with Deaf and Hard of Hearing communities and their loved ones to provide a counseling environment that is inviting and visually accessible.

Services provided in American Sign Language as well as spoken English. Services provided on site, in office or through Video Phone technology to reach all Texas residents.
