About Me

hi & welcome

I am a relational therapist with 10 years of experience in the mental health field, offering tele-health services to individuals and families anywhere in Texas, Florida, and New Jersey where I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. My therapeutic style is warm and authentic. Different clinical skill sets will be implemented to best meet the needs of you as an individual and/or family, depending on the situation at hand. My areas of expertise include:

  • Grief & loss
  • Young adult women navigating life’s transitions
  • Relational or interpersonal struggles
  • Anxiety & Depression
  • Trauma & childhood wounds
  • Adolescents & young adults
  • Parent-child relationships
  • Life transitions

Sometimes we find ourselves repeating old habits that no longer serve us—whether that’s with our emotions, relationships, or work/school. I offer a safe space to explore these patterns with compassionate curiosity, supportive guidance, and room for you to try something different.

Inside each of us is a wealth of tenacity and grit; I enjoy working with what my clients and families are already doing well so that we can build upon those resources together.

Education & Work Experience

I graduated from The University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and The University of Texas at Austin with a Masters of Science in Social Work. After graduate school, I continued to reside in Austin where I gained 9 years of experience in settings ranging from schools-based therapy services, running a psychiatry clinic in rural Texas, psychiatric hospitals, and finally a district-level position where I launched and implemented a social work program serving 11 schools, and 12,000 students.

Focused Studies

I am passionate about continuing my education and have received specialized training in mindfulness, attachment, grief & loss therapies, Play Therapy, trauma, Interpersonal Neurobiology, Motivational Interviewing, and Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI). In 2019 I became an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) trained therapist.
