How Did I Get Here? My Background

My professional journey started deep in the heart of Texas as I received my undergraduate degree in Business from The University of Texas at Austin, TX.  I decided to switch careers after witnessing the fall of Enron as a Business Analyst in 2001 where I became an Educator.  In 2011, I completed my Masters in Counselor Education from the The University of Saint Thomas in Houston, TX.  I have spent over ten years working with adolescence in secondary education across private, public, and charter school settings serving students from all backgrounds in Alief ISD, KIPP Inc. Charter Schools, St. Thomas High School, Incarnate Word High School, and Spring Branch ISD.  Since 2014, I’ve worked primary with adults in private practice who face anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship distress, health issues and significant life changing transitions.  Currently, I practice out of Memorial Counseling Center as a Licensed Professional Counselor and Psychotherapist.

I enjoy public speaking as I have conducted workshops on Transitions in Motherhood and Parenthood with community organizations such as Bayou City Mamas, Woodlands Wellness Coalition, and Chapelwood United Methodist Church.

Outside the Therapy Room

Outside the therapy room, I am a proud Mom of two boys.  I make it a priority to practice regular self-care habits that manage stress, keep me centered, and allow me to live joyfully in the present.  Exercise brings me high levels of energy and positivity as I juggle work and home life.  I also enjoy cooking, traveling, and. going to the movies.  Nothing brings me more joy than sharing a delightful meal with good friends and my large extended family!  As a first generation Filipino-American, I enjoy being around aunts, cousins, family friends in our spontaneous family gatherings often filled with music, laughter, story-telling, and of course, food!

Take Courage. Take the First Step!

As your therapist, I hope to direct you towards a positive and progressive path that will allow you more energized, hopeful, and encouraged to manage the stressors in your life.  If you ready to take a step with me and take that first step with me, schedule your appointment here!
