My Background 

My origin story started when I worked as a Youth Care Worker the summer after I graduated college. I was unsure of what I wanted to do with my life and with my career,

but I knew that I wanted to help people. So, I used my resources and decided to talk to one of my old high school teachers, whom I felt that knew me genuinely and whole heartily, to help me figure out what I should do. She suggested that my path may be to help people through therapy, and together, we explore how my future could be becoming a LMFT. 

Growing up in Houston, I never thought that therapy is useful. As a Afro-Latina, I was taught that therapy “is for the weak”, that “we didn’t need therapy…we could fix ourselves”, etc… Yet, I see now that I was mistaken, as I learn more and more about mental health and its importance to many. Therapy has encouraged many to break free from their worries just by lending a helping hand. Therapy has motivated those to begin their journey towards their desired future. Therapy has overall improved our understanding of ourselves and others. 

Yet, I am not just a therapist! I am also a foodie who loves to explore local restaurants and explore new events happening around Houston. I am also a coffee and tea connoisseur and will always try out new recommendations. My current tea interest is Blackberry Sage Tea with Honey. For entertainment, I watch various types of slice of life anime such as SpyxFamily and Jujutsu Kaisen and read fictional books to help spark my creativity.
