licensed professional counselor - intern

Each person has the ability to experience growth and change during the counseling process. I work from a collaborative approach to help my clients develop and focus on their unique therapy goals. I believe that each person deserves respect, compassion, and grace throughout their counseling journey. It is my goal to understand and connect with my clients on a deeper level, so that the therapy process is personal and productive.
I work from a Client-Centered Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach. I frequently integrate traditional talk therapy with creative modalities like expressive arts, play therapy, sand tray therapy, and mindfulness-based therapy, which helps in creating an authentic, therapeutic space. While I enjoy working with individuals from all backgrounds and beliefs, I can additionally implement faith-based Christian counseling.
My special interests are working with children and families with special needs and mental health issues. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Intern, supervised by Lindsay Ballinger, LPC-S, in the state of Texas. I received my B.A. in Applied Behavioral Sciences from Ashford University, and my M.A. in Professional Counseling from Liberty University.
I work with children, adolescents, adults, families, and groups. Other areas of interest include, but are not limited to: self-esteem, coping skills, stress management, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, issues that influence academic & job performance, life transitions, parenting, and communication.
