Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This is a Spitting Spider, Scytodes sp..

Like most spiders they have venom but are unlikely to bite except in self defense and are not considered to be of medical significance, Everyone’s immune system is different though.

Hi. This looks identical to one that lived in my Grand Prairie livingroom.
I pegged mine as Scytodes univittata species. They are no threat at all, I never hear of bites from these, did have one spit venom in my hand though and no effect.
On the good side,these will eat recluse if they are about.
