About me

Hello, thank you for considering me to assist you in whatever journey life has brought you. Yes, a journey. Challenges are experiences that get us to the next stage of our personal development. However we should never feel like we have to go there alone.

I completed the Master's in Social Work program with a minor in Alcohol and Other Drugs. Within about two years of graduating, I became clinically licensed in New Mexico and the next year in Texas. I have 15 years of experience in individual, marital, family, and group therapy. Much of my work time has been with military personnel and their families. This clinical experience exposed me to working with many people from all over the world and with a variety of cultural backgrounds. Approaches in treatment are a combination of strengths-based, cognitive behavioral therapy, relationship dynamic approaches, motivational interviewing, solution focused therapy, addiction issues, and more. Applying a variety of approaches in treatment are necessary because no therapy is suitable for how dynamic we are as human beings.
I apply a holistic approach with cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and person in environment approaches.

The goal of treatment is to show clients they had the skills and internal resources to meet their personal goals. It is just at times we need to do it in a non-judgmental environment.
