​​I’m a counselor based in the San Marcos, TX area.

A lot of my conversation is based around my idea that, "The story always wins". The story you believe about yourself- about what you deserve - is what will manifest. That narrative will run your life until you dismantle it, and rewrite it.


My approach is to help you figure out where you learned these things, and discard the things that cause you pain or are no longer productive.


In my experience, when people are asked the right questions and given the space to be heard, they can find their own answers. Discovering your own truth holds so much more power.
