About me

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 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.

Jasmine is a very good listener and is very respectful of what you are there to work on. She takes the time to check in just to make sure everything is going okay and to make sure that you get the chance to schedule if you need to!

Jasmine is the best. She’s patient, kind, and always finds multiple ways to help me out when i’m experiencing bad mental health moments. She makes sure I’m comfortable, and has really helped me improve the way I think and communicate. She’s great.

Jasmine took time every session to listen to all of my concerns and only gave feedback or questioned when necessary. She definitely let me talk through a lot of my own solutions while providing a judgement free zone.

Never having been in therapy before, Jasmine really helped me to open up and understand how I was feeling and thinking and I appreciate her so much for that ! She's really understanding and truly listens to what you have to say and addresses every concern you may have. Thank you so much Jasmine for all that you've done thus far for me.

Jasmine is a very thoughtful and kind counselor. She is incredible at helping reframe thoughts and encourages self reflection to find the root of feelings. She's helped me work through so many things and I have enjoyed and looked forward to my sessions with her each week. I highly recommend her as a counselor.

Jasmine is just great, I spent a great deal of time with her, together we overcame many many obstacles. I learned from her how to be compassionate with myself, deal with daily stresses and understand how to approach my issues in life. Our sessions are always fun, we listen to each other, laugh together and communicate our thought process very well. She is my biggest supporter ever and there are not enough words to thank her properly
