Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate in Houston, TX

About My Clients

Are you tired of holding? Whether it's holding it all together, holding everything in, or holding on to hope, it's all exhausting. Of course you're feeling burnt out, isolated, or lost. I promise to accept you regardless of what you've done, how you've behaved, or your darkest thoughts. I'm an individual and relationship therapist, but specialize in the LGBT+ population, poor communication skills, anxiety/depression, and non-monogamous relationships.

My Background and Approach

My clients can expect to finally have a safe space of empathy and unconditional acceptance. In the comfortability of my office, my clients will not have to do this all alone. They can find someone to genuinely listen to them, to accept them truly, and wade through the trauma - no matter how uncomfortable. I am passionate about helping you explore your thoughts, feelings, and emotions at a pace that is comfortable for you. My counseling approach is different, in the way that we will only discuss the difficult stuff when the time is right. We will spend a lot of time building our relationship and trust so we can discuss your difficulties whenever you're ready.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I firmly believe that therapy will not "heal" someone - there is always more work to do. However, I know that clients will terminate services when they are able to self-soothe and feel equipped with strategies to continue the healing process. Happiness is not a state of being. We will not finally be "happy." Happiness is an emotion that will come and go. I am hopeful that my clients will learn this and celebrate the joy when it arrives but have hope when it's missing. I want my clients to heal from the big things and find happiness in the little things. My clients will feel equipped and encouraged that they can overcome anything. Before graduating, my clients will find hope that there will always be a better tomorrow.
