Life can send us through a whirlwind of emotions that can have us feeling overwhelmed, confused, worried or even numb. The key to moving from a place of uncertainty is knowing that you do not have to do it on your own. I am an empathetic licensed professional counselor associate, under the supervision of Amanda Howard, LMFT, LPC-S, who enjoys working with children, teens and adults to find balance in their lives. It brings me joy to help others smile! I truly believe my God-given purpose in life is to help those who struggle with life's many ailments create a positive mindset and create balance between their mind, body and spirit. Having gone through my own mental battles I find there's so much power in not only having education in the mental health field, but also experiencing and overcoming my own life stressors. My approach to therapy is grounded in the belief that everyone has the capacity to heal and grow, regardless of their past or current mental state.
A little bit about myself. I am from Miami Florida, daughter of two very proud Haitian immigrant parents. Being from Miami, I enjoy spontaneous visits to the beach and spending time with my family and friends. Upon graduating high school, I moved to Tampa Florida to pursue my Bachelors in Education at the University of South Florida, and found out about counseling after having to visit the counseling services for my own mental wellbeing. Going through counseling encouraged me to become a counselor so that I may be able to provide and share those same resources with the Caribbean Community, so I immediately changed my major to Behavior Health with a concentration in Children's Mental Health graduating in 2016. Upon graduation, I began working with people with intellectual differences as a behavioral therapist, where I got the opportunity to work with children with intellectual differences, cope through their battles and achieve basic daily life functions. I moved to Houston Texas in 2018, and since moving to Houston, I have had the joy of immersing myself into the cultures of many people while providing services to children, teens, and adults with various mental disorders, mood disorders, behavior differences and intellectual differences.
My approach to counseling is a client centered holistic approach that addresses the mind, body, and spirit, while including a variety of therapeutic approaches like Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Reality Therapy to help you reach your therapeutic goals. I have strong faith in Christ as He is the foundation of everything that I do. I do offer faith-based counseling, and understand that there are those who would not want to include faith into their counseling. I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental space where clients can explore their thoughts and emotions freely without any restrictions. I include different avenues of expressing yourself effectively, like through art and music.
I am a graduate of Texas Southern University with a Master's of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am dedicated to helping my clients develop the skills and tools they need to achieve long-term mental wellness and I look forward to working alongside you!
