I received a Master’s degree in Counselor Education from Texas Tech University in 2007. I became licensed by the state of Texas as a Licensed Professional Counselor in 2009. I have experience with a wide variety of populations in multiple settings but I ultimately decided pursuing private practice was the best option for me.
I believe that counseling is an equal partnership between the counselor and the client, individualized to fit the client’s needs. I primarily utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and techniques. However, I make every effort to meet clients’ needs and will use other theories or techniques if they are a better fit for the client. If situations arise that are out of my scope of practice or would be in the best interest of the client, I will offer appropriate referrals.
