About Me:
My husband, John,  and I have lived in Taylor since 2015. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC, #76005) with the State of Texas and worked at STARRY Counseling in Round Rock for 4 years before coming to TISD. I am a TBRI Practitioner and have been training the CDC staff on TBRI concepts and practices (they will not be certified as there is no certification process). TBRI, Trust-Based Relational Intervention, is a trauma-informed and attachment-focused way to work with children from all backgrounds to help empower them, connect with them, and help them feel safe and secure.  Before working at STARRY Counseling, I worked as a nanny, worked with CPS, and was a 911 operator/Dispatcher for the Stephenville Police Department. I have an Associate of  Applied Sciences in Criminal Justice from Dallas County Community College, a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Tarleton State University, and a Master of Arts in Professional Counseling from LeTourneau University. My passion is to work with children and I am excited to be following that as a TISD Duck.
