Educational Background

 

I've always had an interest in helping people and found that I have a unique talent in doing so. I've also been fascinated by the study of psychology, the brain, research behind the brain/body connection, and the reasons we do the things we do. This guided my educational and professional direction early on.

 

I earned my bachelor's Degree in psychology from Southwest Texas State University in 2003. I went on in my educational journey and earned my Masters Degree in Community Counseling from St. Mary's University in San Antonio, Texas. Here I graduated with as a Distinguished Graduate in the top in my class.  

Due to my love of therapy and wanting to help the upcoming generation of new therapists learn the skills and tools necessary to be highly effective, I continued my education at St. Mary's University in their Doctoral program. My emphasis for the Doctoral program was in Counselor Education and Supervision. I completed the Doctoral program pending my dissertation. 

I was also the Chapter President of Chi Sigma Iota which is the International Counseling Honor Society. I served as the Chapter President from 2003-2007. 

Professional Background & History as a Seasoned Private Practice Therapist & Neurotherapist

 

Since 2007 when I started practicing as a therapist, I have worked in a wide variety of therapeutic settings. I have always been drawn towards therapeutic settings where I can provide teen therapy and young adult counseling.

The teen and young adult years are some of the most formative years in our lives. This period of time often sets the foundation for success or struggles as we progress through adulthood.

As we progress through adulthood, some of those challenges from earlier life experience can result in personal and interpersonal challenges. Working with adults in individual therapy or couples therapy and marriage counseling can help resolve challenges that stand in your way of happiness and success.

As our emotional and behavioral challenges originate from the brain, I went on to be trained in neurofeedback. I have been providing neurofeedback as a neurotherapist since 2013 and have found it to be a very, highly effective approach to a wide variety of life challenges. Neurofeedback has historically been effective in 85%-90% of the people who try neurofeedback and I have seen these results as well. I have experienced a 90% success rate in my practice. 

 

Clinical Settings Providing Counseling & Neurofeedback Services

 

As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I have provided counseling and therapeutic services in the following settings:

  • Facilitated group therapy, individual, and family therapy to court ordered sexual offenders and anger management clients to promote positive change, community safety, and self-exploration.

  • Worked as a therapist in a residential treatment center (RTC) here in Katy, Tx. At this RTC, I provided trauma therapy and PTSD treatment for teen girls and boys who experienced physical, emotional, sexual abuse, and/or neglect. 

    • I also was promoted to the position of Clinical Director at the RTC. Here I continued to provide teen counseling and therapeutic services to the teen girls and boys. I also had responsibility to supervise the clinical work of the other therapists at the RTC. I also was the lead in close collaboration with the psychiatrist for the RTC.

  • I provided therapeutic and counseling services for an Intensive Outpatient/Partial Hospitalization Program for substance abuse and chemical dependency. I provided individual, group therapy, and family therapy as well as managed the overall program.​

  • Most recently, I worked for a well-known and highly regarded group practice here in Katy, Tx from 2013 to 2022. Here I continued to provide teen therapy, young adult counseling, counseling for adults, couples therapy, and marriage counseling, & neurofeedback. 

  • I have been trained in and have provided neurofeedback since 2014 and have found neurofeedback to have a high rate of success. As a result, neurofeedback has been one of my go to therapeutic approaches for teens, young adults, and adults alike. 

Areas of Specialization & Expertise

 

Working as a therapist and counselor since 2007, this has enabled me to specialize in a variety of areas. I have always been a therapist who continues to develop specialized skills that enable me to be a more effective healer and to better serve those who I am blessed to work with.

 

Some of the areas that I have been most successful in are as follows:

 

Advanced Practice & Specialty Training

 

 

I've been providing counseling and therapeutic services to teens, young adults, adults, and couples since 2007. Building upon my years of experience, I have also sought out those therapeutic approaches that are supported by research and shown to be effective in the least amount of time.

Neurofeedback is one of those approaches. In my practice of therapy, neurofeedback has been an approach that has helped teens, young adults, and adults with a wide variety of life challenges.

As noted above, neurofeedback is effective 85%-90% of the time and I've experienced a 90% success rate. While it's not a guarantee, it has a higher success rate than many other forms of therapy.
