Hello there and welcome! A few years after graduating college, I noticed a need for bilingual POC therapists in the Houston area and decided to begin my educational journey to become a mental health therapist. I am a native Houstonian and received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of St. Thomas in 2013. I later decided to continue my education at the University of St. Thomas and received my Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2020. As a therapist, I have worked with adult patients in an inpatient facility, adolescents in a substance abuse facility, adolescents in a charter school system, adolescents in a shelter for unaccompanied youth, and with adults and adolescents in private practice. Anyone and everyone can benefit from therapy. As a clinician, I provide a safe and judgement-free place to express what is making you feel unhappy or stuck. I believe offering you a fresh, unbiased space to do so fosters growth, change, and support. I am passionate about providing quality, cross-culturally informed therapy to adults, adolescents, and children from diverse populations. I will use the therapeutic approach that best meets your needs. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Texas and a National Certified Counselor (NCC) through the National Board for Certified Counselors. I am a Certified Trauma and Resilience Practitioner (CTRP-C) through STARR Commonwealth. I am a CSAT-Candidate, a Sex & Love Addiction therapist, through IITAP. I am trained in Eye-Movement Desensitization Therapy (EMDR) and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). I also offer exceptional immigration evaluations to clients who have a legal necessity for them. Therapy involves self-compassion, support from me, increasing your self-awareness, and your motivation to grow. The path will appear when you take the first step. You made it to my profile and that is the first step. Contact me to set up a free phone consultation to make sure I am the right fit. I look forward to collaborating with you and watching you grow.
