With over five years of hands-on experience in the field, my journey has been nothing short of impactful.

There, I provided intensive care to clients and collaborated closely with three Dallas County mental health and drug courts, ensuring that individuals received the tailored support they deserved. Most recently, I served as a mental and behavioral coordinator at the Dallas Independent School District, where I utilized my expertise’s by focusing on helping teenagers and families navigate the challenges of major life transitions.

My expertise extends across several critical areas, including faith-based issues, depression, anxiety, anger management, substance use issues, life transitions, couples counseling, support for the LGBTQ+ community, and trauma recovery.
