My journey to mental healthcare
After completing my first graduate program I knew that I wanted to be a therapist. So I went back to school and got a master in counseling. It was journey I moved from Calif to Texas and started a whole new life without my family and friends. The journey at times was arduous and challenging. But with faith and determination I made it through.
My goals for you
Ask open ended questions, what is that you want to get out of this process, what do you want to change? what will tell you therapy is helping? what will tell you we are a good fit?
My first session with you
The client will know that the therapist is actively listening, and has a clear understanding about Clients expectations and objectives for counseling.
