My name is Ava, and I look forward to supporting you in your journey to becoming the best version of yourself! I know reaching out can be difficult, and I am proud that you are taking the first steps. Life can be challenging, but you are not alone. As your counselor, it is my mission to provide a safe and supportive space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. I believe that every individual’s journey is unique, and I am committed to working collaboratively with you to promote increased self-esteem, mental health, and the capacity to navigate the complex challenges of life.
I am currently a third year Master’s student in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Sam Houston State University. I graduated from Texas Tech University in 2021 with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a minor in Human Development and Family Studies. Previously, I worked as a cognitive skills coach for children and adults of all ages, working with them one on one to improve cognitive skills through training. Additionally, I worked as a private tutor for college students with Autism Spectrum Disorder and learning disabilities, supporting them both academically and personally. In my free time, I enjoy crocheting, spending time with friends and family, and playing with my two dogs!
