Owner Missimo Motivation LLC


  • Psychological Services (Therapy, Life Coaching, & Mental Training).

  • Fitness Coaching (Groups, Individual, and Distance/Online).

  • Clinician Consulting (Teaching and guiding clinicians to successful private practices).


I received my undergraduate degree from Baylor University in Psychology before going on to attend Sam Houston State University

 where I received my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. For more information on qualifications, feel free to ask upon visit should any questions arise, or go to


I have experience in clinical, inpatient, and private practice settings. In addition, I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults with concerns ranging from mild to severe. I work primarily from an integrative approach of reality, cognitive behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy, but I always keep in mind what the clients specific needs are.

My clinical specialties include athlete concerns/performance, anger, and relational concerns. My population specialty is ages

12-25, but I see almost all ages. My research interests have and continue to include topics of health psychology, sports psychology, intimate partner violence, athlete concerns, male help-seeking behaviors, the role of exercise on mental health, entitlement, and others. However, most of my research thus far involves facets of health/exercise psychology and social psychology.


Outside of work I enjoy bodybuilding, training athletes, playing sports, spending time with my family, reading, and playing with

my cat, Simba. Moreover, I'm extremely passionate about athlete mental health. The connection between mind and body is a

very real and important thing to consider in everything we do. I'm always looking for ways to inspire others and motivating those

around me is the driving force behind everything I do!
