Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor
In my approach, professional therapeutic services are combined with Christian values. I believe it is important for a person coming into counseling feel accepted and understood as they seek support, comfort and healing. When working with children, I use play as a means to help them overcome areas that may be causing anxiety, depression or other emotional disturbances. I also work with their families to address behavioral concerns both at home and school.
I received my bachelor's degree in psychology from Texas A&M University and my master's of arts in psychology from Houston Baptist University. I have experience working with children and adults struggling with many issues such as physical, emotional, sexual abuse as well as those who have experienced domestic violence.
I provide both individual and group supervision for LPC interns. Individual rates are @ $85/hour and group rates are $60/hour. If you are interested in supervision, you may email me at the link below or call the office number and leave a message so that we may set up a meeting to discuss it further.
Licensed Professional Counselor
My approach to counseling is person-centered and is also based on the belief that people have, within themselves, the capacity to change. I have experience in working with those that have experienced abuse and trauma. However, I also work with children, individuals and families struggling with a variety of issues. When working with children, I use play during therapy to address even the most difficult circumstances.
I graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelor's in Psychology, minoring in Human Development and Family Studies. I went on to complete my Master's in Education at the University of Houston Victoria under the Counseling program.

When our world is knocked off course, it can feel very chaotic, painful, hopeless, and devastating. Sometimes we don’t know what to do, we only know that we want to feel better, to feel happy. I believe that we are all equipped with the ability to overcome the challenges we face and I believe that with awareness, there is growth. I aim to create a safe, supportive and nurturing place where you are the expert. My approach is person-centered and I focus on strengths and assisting you through your journey of identifying new perspectives and coping skills. My hope is to help you to achieve your goals and to live a meaningful and authentic life. I have experience working with all ages who struggle with change, depression, anxiety and grief.

Licensed Professional Counselor - Intern
I graduated with my Bachelor’s in Bible from Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri and received my Masters in Professional Counseling through Liberty University. I have been a pastor’s wife for over thirty-five years. I am currently working under the direct supervision of Brenda Lopez, LPC-Supervisor.
I believe that strong faith in the healing power of God and His unconditional love is the greatest resource in counseling. My counseling philosophy: “God has a plan for your life". My goal is to assist you in being all that He has created you to be so that you can experience His love, joy, peace and all the blessings He has for you. The life of a Christian is not without its trials and pain, but God’s purpose in allowing difficult times is to bring good. I am here to use the tools gained in education and training to empower you to find the treasure in the trial.
I have worked with adolescents, young adults, and older adults dealing with anxiety, depression, anger management, grief and loss, as well as marital and parenting challenges.
I use a variety of counseling theories including Cognitive/Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Existential Theory which focuses on finding meaning in suffering, and Solution Focused Theory (SFT) which concentrates on solutions. I employ other counseling theories as well when appropriate. I desire to use every tool God has provided to assist you in your journey. All truth is God’s truth and enables us to live in a new dimension of freedom (John 8:32).”
