Philosophy of Counseling

I believe that Counseling is a very personal decision that most clients don’t come to lightly.  My goal is to provide a safe, trusting and healthy environment for each client.  My purpose it to help clients walk through the concerns that they are facing, by helping identify issues, goals and solutions.  As a talk therapist I have experience in several different modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, with a focus on Individual and Couples Counseling.  I also have experience in Play, Art and Sand tray Therapy working specifically with children.  While my experience is in working with adults and children, my primary focus and passion has been working with children.  I have dealt with Grief and Loss, Trauma, Addiction and Play Therapy.  I look forward to incorporating Neurotherapy into my practice.  I have been fortunate enough to experience Neurotherpay, as a client and as a therapist. I have seen firsthand the impact it can have on a life and helping individuals function as our best selves.  Being able to now incorporate Psychotherapy with Neurotherpay will allow me to works towards achieving each individuals maximum potential.  


I have a Masters of Arts in Professional Counseling from Texas State University located in San Marcos, Texas; and received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from The University of Texas at San Antonio located in San Antonio, Texas.  I am a Licensed Professional Counselor; licensed by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselor.  My credentials combined with my educational background, work and life experiences, and continuing education classes have and will continue to fully equip me to provide therapy for a variety of clients.  

In 2016, Archway opened a secondary office providing counseling and neurotherapy services within a non-profit organization.  This non-profit provides funding for discounted session fees.  Archway Outreach was establised to address a variety of therapy services to children and their families. I am priveleged to provide counseling and neurotherapy services at Achway Outreach on a weekly basis.
