My Background

After growing up in San Antonio, Texas, I pursued my education in American Studies at The University of Texas at Austin. Realizing my deep passion for the intersection of social justice and mental health, I began my journey toward becoming a social worker. I completed my Master of Social Work (MSW) degree at the University of Houston’s Graduate College of Social Work. With a focus on clinical social work, I have experience in schools, service centers, and non-profit organizations, offering individual and group counseling to adults and adolescents. Additionally, I provide psychodiagnostic evaluations.

Beyond my work as a clinician, I enjoy reading, watching movies, and exploring Houston. Whether it’s diving into a new novel, or making Oscars winner predictions with my friends, establishing a safe and collaborative environment together is my goal. I look forward to the opportunity to get to know you better!
