Healing comes in different forms and I am here to partner with you in that journey of healing and curious exploration.

Howdy! I am so glad you are taking the time to explore working with a therapist. I always say that therapy is like “heavy lifting” – it is not easy work! It takes courage to make the intangible and mysterious known and allow your body and consciousness to do the hard work of healing and I am here to walk alongside that journey with you. I have worked with survivors of trauma for the last five years from all sorts of backgrounds and ages. Several clients have started feeling safe in working through their trauma experiences with me and several have moved onto feeling a deeper understanding, compassion and more peace within themselves.

What I do:

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor. I am trained in EMDR and Trust-Based Relational Interventions. My clinical training has allowed me to work with people of all races, ages, genders, body sizes, socioeconomic statuses and sexual orientations. I enjoy taking a holistic approach to therapy taking into account your environment, upbringing, day-to-day living, and body.

My work is influenced by self-compassion, psychodynamic theory, attachment theory, cognitive therapy, and more. Research shows that one of the greatest indicators that someone will benefit from therapy is the safety and trust built into the therapeutic alliance. I personally invest many hours outside of therapy to make sure I am providing and showing up to therapy the best way I can to help create a safe space for change.

Education & Training

I earned my masters at the University of Houston – Graduate College of Social Work. Since 2016, I have been working within various non-profits in the Houston-Galveston area offering clinical services to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and witnesses of those crimes.

I am bilingual (English & Spanish). I joined TFH group in 2021 and offer virtual options only. I work with individuals, families, and groups.
