About Me

Esther is a Canadian-born, Texas-raised Ghanaian with a flair for fashion and a heart for the hurting. A two-time graduate from the University of North Texas, she earned her master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and has many years of experience in Student Affairs and in supporting survivors of sexual or relational violence, trauma, harassment, and stalking. She is continually inspired by the resilience, tenacity, and determination of young women and feels privileged to provide tangible support and encouragement to those seeking healing.

By day, Esther works as a counselor at Roots Adolescent Renewal Ranch, a residential treatment facility for adolescent and teenaged women ages 13-17 with a mental health or substance use diagnosis. When she’s not in the office or in the kitchen, Esther gives her time to various community service projects and spends weekends assembling Blessing Bags to support those in the community who are experiencing homelessness. When she has a free moment, she is absolutely packing her red polka-dot bags and darting off on an international or domestic travel adventure!
