I enjoy working with individuals of all ages experiencing challenges with mood, depression, and anxiety. I have a particular interest in working with individuals struggling with anxiety, micro-traumas, aging, grief and loss, and depression. I typically use the person-centered approach. I have also used CBT, mindfulness, art, and play therapy techniques. I have training in Sand Tray, Nutritional and Integrated Therapies and tapping techniques. I have a Master of Art degree in Community Counseling and a Master of Philosophy in Health Psychology. I have held my independent license in NM since 2011 and have experience counseling adults with mood disorders, PTSD, ADHD, and life stress issues. I am a disabled veteran. I love various forms of art. I also have a love to learn whether it is about a rare disability or a therapeutic technique. I like to align my research and education with the population that I am counseling, so I can adapt my clinical techniques to fit the current population I support.
