I have been in the social work field since 2004 and bring a wide variety of professional and personal experience to my practice. I am a provider best described as empathetic and dedicated, who makes appropriate use of my sense of humor. You can expect that I will seek to learn as much as you're willing to share and to creatively tailor your experience to best serve you. My versatility and knowledge make me a holistic therapist. My non-traditional upbringing taught me sensitivity to every family’s situation. My practice is shaped by my belief that being real is better than being perfect.

I’ve wanted to be in the helping profession since I was five years old. I've always wanted to make sure others felt valued. I fell in love with social work during a global children's health course in undergrad and the rest is history.
I love cooking, watching movies, and exploring different cities in Texas.
I recharge by spending time with my children, and sometimes by getting a good pedicure.
I have a Dutch/German Shepherd and a Belgian Malinois named Huck and Quinn, after characters from my favorite TV show Scandal. My favorite pet story is watching them explore our new house and yard when my family moved to Texas.
