My writing projects include several novels in various stages of the development process, a self-help book, as well as a motivational planner and an inspirational prompt journal. What these projects all have in common is the goal to uplift readers.
Thank you for taking the time to read about me! I'm a writer, psychotherapist, certified yoga instructor, artist, and aspiring author. While I am not currently taking on any private clients, my profession as a psychotherapist has had a profound impact on me, my writing, and the projects I am currently working on and plan to work on. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Texas. I earned my master's degree in counseling from the University of Houston - Victoria after obtaining a bachelor's degree in sociology, with minors in Spanish and Russian, from the University of Texas - San Antonio. I also earned my MFA in creative writing, and my thesis is my first novel. It is currently in the final stages of revision.
I am body positive, which means that I believe every single body, regardless of size, shape, gender, age, capabilities, or health status, is a wonderful body, and deserves love and appreciation. I truly enjoy assisting others learn how to love themselves and get the most out of their lives. While I've been doing so through therapy for nearly a decade, I'm currently working on expanding these efforts to help others through my writing.
It was through my own journey from depression and self-hatred to happiness and self-love, I learned that embracing and loving myself exactly as I am allows me to be so much more compassionate, appreciative, and loving towards not only myself, but everyone I meet. I genuinely believe that each and every one of us is deserving of love and respect, and that we are all capable of leading a full and happy life, regardless of our circumstances. My dream is to offer people the types of books that I desperately needed before I learned how to love myself.
