About me

I am an LPC who has worked in Community Mental Health for 30 years in San Antonio. My clients have included children, adolescents, young adults, and adults. My experiences have been in non-profit community agency settings, often with under-served populations. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, OCD, and ADHD. I have also worked with persons experiencing gender identity issues, and LGBTQ issues. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. My clients have included persons on the Autism Spectrum dealing with the transition to adulthood and independence.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect and compassion. I want to focus more on the person than on your diagnosis or label. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek help when you are discouraged or overwhelmed and I am ready to take those steps with you. I will assist you in realizing your life goals and feeling empowered.

Ramona is wonderful. She’s just friendly enough to feel comforting without being too involved so that she can still maintain some distance and impartiality. I always feel supported by her and appreciate her perspective questions that help me view issues and challenges in new light.
