More About Mer...
Am I qualified?
I earned my undergraduate degree in Human and Organizational Development at Vanderbilt University. Currently, I am at Northwestern University obtaining my Masters in Counseling. I am currently a Counselor Intern under the Supervision of Jennifer Ryan, Ph.D., LPC-S, #19003. She can be reached at 214-547-1318.
I’m a HUGE animal lover and have two dogs and two cats. I also adore frogs. Really any animals at all.
I’m an avid yogi and spin cyclist.
Yoga has been a huge part of my addiction recovery and is just as much – if not more – a spiritual practice as it is a physical one for me.
I moved to NYC right out of college to pursue a career in musical theatre, and I lived there for almost 14 years before returning to Houston. I also managed a large restaurant in midtown Manhattan for several years. You learn an awful lot about people working in the service industry!
More About Me…
I have always been drawn to the counseling field, and I truly consider this to be a calling more than a career.
Life has taken a lot of interesting twists and turns, and I have landed right where I’m supposed to be. As a child of divorce and alcoholic parents, I am familiar with family trauma, feeling like I need to be “good” in order to be loved, feeling the need to take care of everyone around me in order to keep the peace, etc.
I got sober in 2018 and am a member of AA, so I have a deep understanding of addiction and great compassion for those who struggle with it.
