As an overachiever myself, I understand the tolls that come with success-building. That’s why my passion is focused on helping driven and hard working professionals learn to balance their lives, so they can enjoy the life they have worked so hard for. My research-based strategies and techniques help to make sure their success is not only sustainable, but helps them achieve even more success in ALL areas of their lives.


I have over 20 years of experience in the mental health field .  In 2006, I graduated from the University of North Texas with a Master of Education in Counseling. In 2011, I earned my LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) and opened up my own private practice, where I have helped many people overcome a variety of problems that have stopped them from living a happy and healthy life.   I use cognitive behavioral therapy when working with clients. I specialize in working with high-achieving professionals, executives and business owners that struggle with managing stress and maintaining a healthy work life balance.  In 2017, I became a Board Certified Coach for life coaching.
