Candice currently is a graduate student pursing a Master’s degree in Marriage, Couples and Family Counseling at Lamar University. Over the last twelve years, Candice has obtained extensive experience in the Mental Health field working in private practice and in non-profit organizations.
Within private practice, Candice has facilitated groups at The Counseling Center of Montgomery County for at risk adolescent girls. The goal for these therapeutic groups were to provide adolescent girls empowerment to reach their full potential by addressing topics such as self-esteem, peer pressure, healthy interpersonal relationships, anxiety, depression, and stress management.
One of the non-profit organizations Candice collaborated with was Angel Reach; where Candice helped youth, who have aged out of the foster care system, to foster independence. Some of the individual sessions addressed learning life skills and how to apply them during early adulthood.
Candice is currently employed in a 24/7 psychiatric crisis emergency room at the Neuropsychiatric Center (NPC), which is associated with The Harris Center for Mental Health & IDD. At NPC, Candice is a care coordinator who provides resources for individuals with diagnosis such as Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, Depression, Anxiety, and other Mood disorders.
Through Candice’s work in different clinical settings, she utilizes these experiences to identify unique treatment techniques catered to a diverse range of clients. Candice aims to work collaboratively with her clients to ensure they feel, and believe in, their process along this journey.
