Personal Statement:
I love being a part of the SCS staff at A&M! College is an exciting time as students explore their individual identities and interests, and take steps toward creating their ideal lives.  I enjoy helping students increase self-awareness and utilize their strengths to more effectively navigate the challenges along their paths. I focus on creating a positive, collaborative therapeutic relationship with each individual client, and choose strategies based on a client’s particular needs. In my free time, I enjoy exploring the College Station area, taking road trips, running, and reading.
