About Me

Therapy is a second career for me as I was a Cosmetologist and business owner for almost 10 years. The University of Texas at Austin granted me a beautiful opportunity to pursue and complete both my BSSW and MSSW.

Post education I began a career in Substance Use and Addiction Counseling, receiving my LCDC-I. I was fortunate to help multiple organizations facilitate group therapy, offer individualized care, work from point of intake to discharge and provide community integration.

After a year of hands-on Social Work, I choose to move forward by getting my LMSW and gain Supervision for which I would be under for the next 2 years. I was immediately offered to work under supervision as an LMSW taking individual clients, with a multitude of mental and behavioral disorders, challenging my known modalities and style to reach more client needs and grow as a therapist and human. Furthermore, I explored medical social work at St. David’s in the Psych ER and PEDS, where I expanded my knowledge and capacity for a fast paced environment and quick and efficient decision making skills.

Following that I was the Clinical Manager and Director of Operations for The Trauma Recovery Institute. Some of my greatest accomplishments were becoming accredited by The Joint Commision as a Mental Health and Substance Use Recovery facility, becoming a training facility who could host students and interns, and managed a team who successfully drove a PHP program into what our clients would say was “the first thing to give them hope.”

I have been grateful for the support around me both professionally and personally while becoming a LCSW with training and experience in Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy, TMS, TF-CBD, IFS and Nature Healing.
