I am a native of Jamaica and graduated in February 2002 from Houston Baptist University with a Bachelor’s Degree in both Psychology and Sociology. I later obtained a Master of Arts in Psychology in 2005, leading to licensure in Texas as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). Additionally, I earned a “Certificate of Christian Counseling” and became certified in “Trauma Resolution Therapy” from the Biblical Life Skills Institute. I am a member of Houston LPC Association.
My past experiences include working in an inpatient setting, working in child, adolescent and adult psychiatric and chemical dependency treatment. Prior to working in the field of Christian Counseling, I worked 34 years in nursing including mental health nursing. Many of these years also included dealing with a wide array of therapy related life issues.
At Houston Center for Christian Counseling I see clients with marital and family struggles, depression, fear and anxiety, stress management and grief/loss. My approach to counseling is from a Cognitive Behavioral perspective integrated with relevant Biblical principles. This allows clients to see how belief systems impact thoughts, emotions, and relationships. I then help with the necessary identification of unhealthy beliefs that keep clients stuck both emotionally and relationally. My goal is to provide a service that will educate, equip, and empower the client to meet their goal in therapy.
I am married and have no children. My hobbies are listening to music, dancing, traveling, and reading.
