Mandy is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New Mexico with over 8 years of experience and over 12 years in the helping profession. Mandy has a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice and Government and a Master’s degree in Social Work from New Mexico State University.
I have helped a wide variety of individuals dealing with depression, anxiety, stress, anger, trauma, PTSD, abuse, addictions, relationship and parenting issues, ADHD, low self-esteem, mood disorders, and career.
My therapeutic style is very personable, interactive and engaged. I have always believed in treating each and every individual with the upmost respect and dignity. I believe the therapeutic relationship is the most important part in helping clients grow and become successful in their treatment and work hard to build a strong rapport to ensure client success.
I am very eclectic and individualistic in my therapeutic approach and adapt my treatment style to the needs of each client I am working with. I have never believed that one style works for all individuals and so often combine a variety of modalities to supporting each client’s needs. Some of the therapeutic modalities I use are: Trauma Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Reality Based Therapy, Family Systems, Narrative, and Client Centered Therapy.
I am also very strengths based which allows me to highlight the client’s strengths and what they already bring into treatment to support each individual in being successful.
I look forward to hearing from you and answering any questions you may have.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Self esteem
- Bipolar disorder
I also have experience in Addictions, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties

I find it difficult to get a therapist that is easy to talk to and share things with. Mandy always makes me feel safe, and I never worry about being judged. I’m very glad that I decided to start therapy with her.
So far she's helped me a lot and given me good advice. I understand that it takes time to get better but I think with her help I'm feeling very hopeful about the future.
Mandy is kind and intentful with her responses and counseling: she is empathetic, understanding, and patient. Highly recommend.
Mandy helped me notice problems I wasn't even aware of having. She helped me though a lot. I hope I can work with Mandy again someday!
Mandy has been helping me a lot during tough times.
