I received my Master's Degree in Social Work from New Mexico State University, School of Social in 2007, and I've been dedicated to the behavioral health field since 1997. Currently, I hold licenses as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in both Arizona and New Mexico, and I'm also a Licensed Independent Substance Abuse Counselor (LISAC) in Arizona. Over the years, I've gained a wide range of clinical experience, working with individuals and groups across various stages of life. My focus and passion lie in providing counseling to individuals dealing with dual diagnoses of mental health and addictions.
Throughout my professional journey, I have had the opportunity to work with individuals facing challenges such as addiction, depression, anxiety, and trauma. My experience extends to diverse populations, including military personnel, adolescents, and LGBTQ+ individuals. I firmly believe that you are the expert of your own story and that you possess numerous strengths that can help you overcome the obstacles you encounter. I understand that taking that first step towards seeking a more fulfilling and happier life requires courage, and I want you to know that I am here to provide unwavering support throughout this process.
