I am a clinical social worker licensed in New Mexico and have been working in the field for the past 5 years. A great deal of my experience comes from working with individuals on a variety of difficulties including stress management, depression, interpersonal communication, anxiety, grief/loss, and trauma. I have worked extensively with individuals dealing with poverty and discrimination including those among the immigrant, BIPOC, and LGBTQIA+ communities. I also have experience working with individuals from the empath community and those who have never been in therapy before. Though I am specifically trained in motivational interviewing, solution focused therapy, SMART and as a sex educator; as a therapist I like to have a very eclectic style. I lead with a client centered approach and believe the therapeutic relationship is of utmost importance.
My therapeutic style is warm and laid back. I enjoy using humor to process and build rapport. I like to say that in therapy, as the client, you are the expert of your experience and my purpose is to help you reach clarity and growth in whatever way necessary for you. You, as the client, are the captain of the ship and I as the therapist am like the navigational tool providing feedback; I can point you in the right direction of your goals but ultimately it is up to you on how you accomplish them! I take a very personal approach, understanding that every person is different and that there is no one type of therapy that will be a fit for all. As a therapist I am very open-minded, non judgmental and am not at all uncomfortable with silence or difficult topics.
Seeking out therapy is an act that is extremely courageous because it involves taking a chance on a new relationship and ultimately on a better future. Making a change is never easy but can be so rewarding, and my goal as a therapist is to honor that. Hope to hear from you soon!

Jasmine and I have only had a few sessions together so far, but I can say with confidence that she is a warm and thoughtful therapist. She creates an open and caring environment for me to talk through challenges while being affirmed in my thoughts, feelings, and realizations. She is a perceptive listener who offers excellent insights that I carry with me throughout the week. I always look forward to our sessions.

Jasmine has been a great voice of reason and support for me going through a very challenging time in my life. going through a divorce from a toxic relationship I really thought I was losing my mind. Jasmine made me feel "seen" and validated my feelings that i've learned to suppress.
I am not the same woman that started therapy 9 months ago. I think differently, behave differently, and most importantly feel stronger to continue in my next chapter of life. Jasmine has provided me with better tools to navigate and deal with stressful circumstances.
