About Me

I have a passion to help others in need and empowering them to become their best selves and live their best lives. My diverse background allows me to bring empathy, compassion and life experience to my practice, meeting the client where they are at and assist in setting goals of where they would like to be. I work with individuals and groups to facilitate safe, private sessions for those who are in need of mental health support in the Lower Arkansas Valley.

Education & Experience

With a concentration in mental health and trauma, I use interventions such as EMDR, CBT, DBT, Clinical Virtual Reality and AcuDetox. As a Certified Health Coach with a Weight Management Specialist certification, I support clients with the challenges that come with those who are making longterm, healthy lifestyle changes.
