It can be challenging to know ourselves when we have had a lifetime of showing up for others or being what others expect of us. Coming to know yourself is an empowering process and I’m honored to provide space that helps you explore any parts of yourself that you have longed to have more access to.

 

I believe we can honor our communities and families, without needing to mold entirely to their expectations. In fact, it is breaking the mold that often allows us to be in more authentic connection with others. You deserve to live a life that is in alignment with your felt sense of self, your values, and your various identities. Together we will create a safe space that will allow you to learn how to find fulfilling relationships and safe connections where all of you will be welcome.

 

My relationship with clients feels especially important for therapeutic connection and growth, and I want you to know that I am fully on your side. Let’s show up together and support you through the changes you most want to see in your life.

My Mission:
I aim to provide a safe space for clients who want to explore their identity and learn more about themselves free from family or cultural obstacles or messages. I want to help clients find their authentic voice and heal from their past wounds.
My Journey:
My love for psychology started at Austin College, where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in 2019. While taking a Psychology of Human Sexuality undergraduate course, I began to recognize how uncomfortable people can become when listening to possibilities or differences in human functioning. This is where my desire to pursue counseling psychology began. After undergraduate studies, I graduated from Texas Woman’s University with my Master's of Arts in Counseling Psychology in Summer of 2021, which helped me learn more about myself and increased my understanding of the different ways I can support and help others.
