Ph.D. Candidate, LPC, LCDC Intern, LMFT - Associate, Supervised by Mary Sanger, LPC-S, LMFT-S, LCDC
Dallas, Texas Therapist Specializing in Counseling Children, Tweens, Teens, Young Adults, Millennials
Each person, no matter the age, holds a story that is unlike any other and when shared, can foster hope, connectedness, empowerment, and bravery in others. In therapy, I love hearing others’ stories and assisting clients in using their innate resiliency to create change. I have a passion for counseling older children, tweens, teens, young adults (including millennials) and their families who are struggling with a variety of complex issues.
I work extensively with older children, adolescents, and young adults who are encountering difficulties with anger management, depression, anxiety, fear, trauma, scholastic difficulties, career planning, relationships, oppositional behaviors, substance abuse, ADD, and general stress that life throws their way.
By creating a safe place for each client, it is my hope that both child and parents feel valued and that their voices are being heard as they navigate life’s complexities through therapy. Working together, one moment at a time, we will create change to accomplish a more meaningful and satisfying life while discovering and unveiling individual strengths.
I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Dallas Baptist University, double-minoring in criminal justice and social psychology. I went back to Dallas Baptist University and obtained my Master of Arts degree in Counseling in 2009. In 2010, I started the Doctoral Program in Family Therapy at Texas Woman’s University and am currently working on my dissertation. I am a Doctoral candidate, Licensed Professional Counselor, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate, and a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor Intern, all in the State of Texas.
I am a Dallas native and love living in and exploring the city. I enjoy spending time with my loving and supportive family and friends. I am a self-proclaimed book worm, love singing and everything about music, working out, exploring hole in the wall coffee shops, and serving at my local church.
