Message to clients

Hi there, thanks for stopping by, feel free to reach out to me with any questions. I offer a free 10-15 minute consult to see if I can meet your therapeutic needs, as well as if you think I will be a good therapist fit for you. Please check out my areas of focus where I offer online sessions in the state of Texas. I am a dedicated provider of collaborative relationships with my clients where I walk WITH you on your journey through therapy.

I am a neurodivergent therapist and my personality/therapy style is friendly, approachable, outgoing, and open-minded. Outside of private practice, I am a mother to two teenage daughters on the autism spectrum, as well as an animal rescuer of my myriad species of pets. I look forward to speaking with you!
