Life is unpredictable and can sometimes challenge our ability to navigate moving forward and living the life we want and deserve. If you feel stuck, overwhelmed, stressed, lost, angry or sad and have tried all you know to do, then you are in the right place. Asking for help demonstrates your commitment to yourself and your courage to design the life you envision for yourself.
My approach is to work with you by processing together, to unlock and learn new skills, tools and techniques as resources for you to encounter current and future challenges with less difficulty. My commitment to you as your therapist is to provide you a non-judgemental, direct, compassionate, empathetic and safe place for you to experience the support and guidance you desire.
Everyone experiences life challenges differently, so I understand that my need to be flexible in my approach is imperative. My role in assisting you process your needs will be an eclectic-collaborative approach that pulls from various theoretical perspectives and evidenced based practices which will be tailored to your specific needs. I believe the client should lead the direction of our work together.
My background consists of working with teens and adults in various settings. My goal is to empower individuals to strive for optimal living, even when it seems impossible.

A Little Bit more about me
I grew up in Uvalde, Texas before moving to Boerne where I graduated high school before leaving for Waco to attend Baylor University. There I obtained my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees with a focus on Interpersonal Communication. I completed my Masters in Social Work at the University of Alabama before returning to San Antonio to begin my career.
My passions reach beyond helping others thrive. I have raised and loved multiple cats, two dogs, and an assortment of other animals from pet squirrels to horses. I enjoy cooking and sharing my culinary delights with friends, family and the community. I am a lover of music and come from a long line of musicians. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my parents on their farm and dancing with my husband to live music.
