MEET THE TEAM
Founder & Psychotherapist
I specialize in helping organizations and individual clients become their best version based on their goals, needs, values, and preferences. I serve individuals, businesses, educational institutions, and government agencies, including active and retired military.
Psych Nurse Practitioner
I am a Psych Nurse Practitioner Specialist in Houston, Texas. Having more than 10 years of diverse experiences in med-management, psych-evaluations, and therapy. I affiliate with many hospitals and Clinics in Houston helping clients manage their mental health safely.
I am an out-of-the-box thinker who believes that therapy is not a process that can only be done in a room. Numerous activities can be seen as therapeutic once an individual is open to broadening their view of what healing could look like. I have obtained various experiences working with a wide variety of populations and cultures; which includes those with mental illness, substance abuse, chronic trauma, juvenile probation, workplace stressors, and conflicts. I strive to bring awareness to mental health rather than deny its existence by creating a space for people to feel connected and to be able to express themselves without judgment. He uses solution-focused, attachment-based, and collaborative therapy to reinforce the need to partner with each individual.
When clients are navigating through the journey of healing, I believe in meeting them where they’re currently at in life. I strive to provide a safe and unique therapeutic experience that promotes optimal health and peace of mind. I believe in utilizing different therapeutic approaches that fit the client’s unique needs and are aimed at utilizing tools that aide in developing personal growth. My goal, is to create an authentic relationship that allows clients to explore and meet self-identified areas of growth that will bring about empowerment and fulfillment.
