Owner of 246 Counseling. I am a native of Dallas, TX and a Christian who operates from this framework in my practice. I absolutely love what I do and consider it a true privilege and honor to walk with my clients through difficult times. As someone who has benefited from counseling in my own life, I am a big believer in the process of therapy. To learn more about my philosophy in counseling, click "Why Counseling?"
Beyond being a counselor, I am a coffee loving mom to 2 dogs, and more importantly a mom. I have served for 4 years as a licensed foster parent, providing a safe space for multiple children, and recently had the privilege of adopting my son out of foster care.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Christian Education, both from Dallas Baptist University. Following undergrad I worked as a college and career planning coach for 6 years, while working on my first Master's Degree. This job provided me with exceptional training in career counseling, as well as the ability to assist families in making decisions for students after high school.
In 2012 I graduated with a Master's in Professional Counseling from Amberton University and pursued a career as a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have worked in numerous rehab settings, as well as in private practice since 2012. In 2016-2017 I went back to school and obtained a second Master's Degree in School Counseling. This allows me to work full-time with teens, focused on mental health education and treatment in the school setting, while maintaining my private practice in the evenings and on weekends.
I am trained in multiple therapeutic models, and tailor therapy to the individual. I am EMDR trained, and tend to take a person-centered approach to my work with clients.
