I received my Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Communications from the University of Texas at San Antonio. I graduated from Dallas Baptist University with my Masters in Counseling. While being in different management roles in Corporate America I discovered I had a passion for people and helping them reach their full potential.
The journey through life can get real messy. I have been fortunate in my life to meet some amazing people who I have been able to witness their stories of hope, perseverance, and triumph. I have also seen extreme hardships transformed into joy that has no limits. I cannot assure you the road will be easy, but what I can assure you of is I will do everything in my efforts to join you on your journey to healing. There is hope! I strive to create a positive, caring environment where clients feel safe in a non-judgmental atmosphere and can explore personal growth. Taking the first step to reach out and ask for help is not a sign of weakness, but it is a sign of strength. Be courageous. Take a leap of faith.
