LPC - Associate
Serving clients in Cypress
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Associate under the supervision of Christina Runnels, LPC-S. I completed my Bachelor of Science in Psychology, and Master of Science in Postsecondary Education from Portland State University in Portland, Oregon. I returned to school later in life, to pursue my passion to help people, and received a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am originally from the Pacific Northwest, but I got to Texas as fast as I could! And I am happy to claim Houston as my home.
I enjoy working with people to help them realize their potential, worth and value. In my approach I use a person-centered orientation to counseling, using cognitive behavioral techniques, positive psychology, motivational interviewing, and other strategies suited to each individual client.
I believe that everyone has the potential for wellness, but many of us have been hurt during the battles of life, that can pose a challenge in this journey. I seek to partner with you, to discover how those battles and experiences have shaped you and how to use them as lessons to progress on the path to wholeness. I also enjoy working with people who are seeking a change in their lives, or who are going through transitions, such as career change, divorce, or relocation. I want to help you to realize and recognize your intrinsic abilities, strength and resilience; and that you are equipped already to progress, grow and experience mental, physical and spiritual wellness.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, journalling, reading, and playing with my dog CoCo.
