I am a native Houstonian and was an entrepreneur for over 23 years in the cosmetology profession. I transitioned from the hair business in 2012 and made a natural transition from being a confidant and adviser from behind the chair to a licensed professional counselor in front of the chair.
I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Counseling in 2009 and Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology in 2012 from Capella University. I have been practicing as a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Mediator since 2013. I endeavored back into entrepreneurship and opened my counseling practice in 2017 in Bellaire, Texas. The practice was birthed out of the need to provide quality mental wellness counseling and coaching to all individuals who want to live their best life.
The focus of my practice is centered on helping couples learn how to talk so the other will listen so you can move forward in your relationship. These individuals may have never engaged in therapy but are looking to makes positive changes and growth as individual which will improve the quality of your relationships.
I definitely want to acknowledge that I also work with single individuals who are fed up living a mediocre life, ready to make positive changes, and live your best life whether single or partnered. You may be experiencing loneliness, depression, relationship conflict, or burnout. If your life has not turned out as planned and you are ready to turn it in a new direction, let’s talk about it!
My future plans are to give back to community through my evolving non-profit, Initiating Change. The focus of Initiating Change will be to provide free counseling and mentoring services to teen mothers (and fathers) who want to overcome their obstacles and pursue their life long goals. I also volunteer with various community service agencies and non-profits.
On a personal note, I have two wonderful adult children, son and daughter, who are pursuing their own dreams in other states. In my self-care time, I enjoy reading, traveling, spending time with family and friends, playing golf, and my hands down passion… riding my motorcycle.
