This blog was created to  providing information on growing as individuals, couples, parents and families. It is not a form of counseling and is not meant to replace meeting with your counselor. If you have a life threatening issue; reach out to a professional or  call 911. 


I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Education with an Early Childhood Endorsement and a Master’s degree in Professional Counseling from Texas Wesleyan University. My Private Practice is in Carrollton, Texas and also online. I try to meet clients wherever they are in life.

I encourage my clients to do the best they can for themselves while working to reach achievable personal and professional goals. Learning to seek a better understanding of self can bring internal acceptance and love.


Much Respect,

  1. Nice reading about you

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Be in touch. Browse through the category sections, I feel you may find something of your interest.


  2. The struggles of finding and being yourself relates to all of us, but it is wonderful that you have created a place for those in the LGBTQ community to feel accepted, respected, safe. and at home. Perhaps you can also educate the rest of us who really do care. For example, I don’t know what the Q stands for in LGBTQ.

    Thank you for being you and doing what you do to help!


    1. Thank you for your comment! The Q stands for questioning. I work with youth and children dealing with matching the inside and the outside…or being ok with it not matching. Sometimes youth turn to the LGBTQ community for the wrong reasons and have other issues to work through or they are gay and get shamed for it. Questioning one’s sexuality is something I work to respect at any age.

      So glad we’ve gotten to connect~

      Much Respect,
