Licensed Professional Counselor


From 2010 until 2016 while working in the Criminal Justice System, I attended St. Edwards University and graduated with a Bachelors in Organizational Communication and a Masters in Counseling.

My love for volunteering in the community helped shape me as a mentor for children and teens through Austin Partners in Education and the Seedling Foundation.  The experience molded me into becoming a therapist. 

In 2017, I passed the National Counselors Exam.  My 3000 hours site experiences were through Capital Area Counseling, Sage Recovery and Wellness Center and Austin Counseling Center.

In March 2021, I became a fully licensed therapist and began my own private practice.  And now in 2022, I've expanded my practice as a Florida Telehealth Provider.  

I am trauma informed.

I am a person of color.

I am an inclusive therapist.


Your Therapy Experience

Clients usually are nervous, afraid or hesitant to begin therapy or have a first session.  The unknown and the uncertainty can be daunting.  There is this looming question of who is this person that I will reveal myself to?  The first session is your story and why you are seeking change.  The first 5 – 7 minutes, we will go over your information, Notice of Privacy Practices, confidentiality, scheduling, length of sessions, fees, risks of counseling and the therapeutic relationship.  We then move into your story and your idea of what you would like to see happen.  If we are a good fit, we will work collaboratively into the next sessions.

At the end of the day, we can endure much more

 than we think we can.
