Meet our Counselors



First and foremost, I am a child of God. I feel as if my purpose in life is to make Him and His Love known to others. It was through various life circumstances and a calling from the Lord that I began to pursue counseling in 2019. I was born and raised in Lufkin, Texas. I have been married to my husband since 2012 and together we have two daughters that are precious miracles from God. I completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from Penn Foster College in 2019. Upon completion of my Bachelors degree, I went on to receive my Master of Arts Degree in Professional Counseling from Liberty University. I had the privilege of working with children as a public-school teacher. I serve at my home church as a women’s life group leader as well as serving as a children’s Sunday school teacher. I have a passion for working with children and adolescents as well as individuals. I value the importance of allowing others to feel seen and heard. I feel so honored that the Lord has called me to walk alongside others on their therapeutic journey.
