Sometimes life takes a turn that we did not expect and the way we used to cope and survive no longer works for us anymore. I am excited and view it as my privilege to join you on this path towards self-exploration while holding a safe place place for you to explore. I believe the therapeutic relationship is a critical component to making counseling work and will focus on creating a trusting relationship with you.
In counseling we might explore your family of origin to better understand current patterns and behaviors, which aligns with the Adlerian perspective. Through examining origins of patterns, we can transform patterns and behaviors that currently have you feeling stuck. Through this understanding we might explore how you attach with people in your life. I am skilled in helping my clients manage their emotions and learning new healthy ways to interact relationally (with others and yourself).
Over the past few years, it has become a passion of mine to help my clients process some of the most difficult moments of their life. This passion has led to completing advanced trainings in an approach to working through trauma, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR).
I completed my Masters in Counseling at the University of North Texas and completed my undergraduate work at Iowa State University majoring in Psychology with a minor in Political Science. I have worked with adolescents and adults of all ages. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a National Certified Counselor. I have experience working with relationship issues, adjustments in life stages, emotional dysregulation, traumatic experiences, and dysfunctional family systems.
I was born in Rome, Italy, but Houston is home to me. I love to travel both domestically and internationally, I am self-proclaimed “foodie”, and love to throw the ball with my dog, Ryder.
