I have worked with individuals on the Autism Spectrum since I taught swim lessons when I was only thirteen years old. I have a passion for working with this population, and have years of clinical experience specializing in this area in the following settings: inpatient hospital, community clinic, women's shelter, and private practice. My goal is for my clients to feel heard and respected, and to help each individual find healing, growth, and overall wellness. I began my education at Purdue University, where I graduated with Phi Betta Kappa honors and a Bachelor of Science in Psychological Sciences. Then I moved back to my Texas roots to complete graduate training at the University of North Texas, where I earned a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. In 2017, I began working in private practice, helping individuals raise their personal ceiling of success and self-esteem. I am also a member of the National Board for Certified Counselors.
