A wife and mother who achieved a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from University of Houston-Downtown in 2005. I went on to receive a Master's of Education from Texas Southern University with a focus in Counseling in 2007. I am Board Certified by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors. Following a 8 year career in the US Army where I served in Operation Desert Storm, I decided to acquire skills that I never received as a soldier when mandated to seek counseling by my superiors or later in life when my father died and I actually needed to understand my non-ending grief. The professionals I sought out only wanted to medicate me which only resulted in my "sleeping the pain away." My goal is to help you conquer your pain TODAY in order to allow you to cope tomorrow.....and the days that follow.
Society has placed such a negative connotation on Mental Health counseling that it actually prevents those that actually would like to receive assistance from acquiring it. Here at POWCS, we like to say "smart people seek help while those that make fun of them actually need it." So if you take the time to seek help for a problem that you know you cannot handle alone, you have made a very wise and SMART decision, let us help you see it through.
Our session consists of a finely tuned interaction (conversation) between you and I where you take the lead and I follow. I will only direct you in the event that you lose your way. If there is ONE place where your voice will be heard and make a difference to someone .....let it be here. While I may not tell you want you desire to hear, I will ALWAYS tell you what is essential for your growth.

As a survivor of Military Sexual Assault, it became my motivation to overcome the anger and hatred that was embedded deep within me that I was unable to obtain help for from any other Mental Health provider in my past, In so doing, I was able to heal myself from the inside out and now am able to do the same for others to assist them in becoming VICTORIOUS instead of having a Victim mindset as I once did.
