I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) with the State of New Mexico (LIC# CMF0200391). If you decide to work with me please know that I take an interpersonal, systemic, and supportive approach. Simply, I believe that people can be healed through compassionate relationships with others. I am here to work with you on any goals you may have for yourself – with empathy and open-mindedness.
I have over 10 years of counseling experience. I have working in a variety of settings (inpatient psychiatric hospitalizations, non-profit, community health, university counseling centers, integrated behavioral health care settings, hospice) and have helped individuals address a variety of life stressors (depression, anxiety, substance abuse, family stressors, parenting, trauma, end of life care, and many more). My passion towards counseling led me to seek out a doctorate degree in Counseling Psychology. My primary areas of research include use of bilingualism in psychotherapy, outcome measures, and sex positivity. Feel free to ask me more about any of my training experiences.
I am fluent in English, Portuguese, and Spanish and welcome any opportunity to integrate any of these into our work together.

I highly recommend Tania. She is friendly and easy to talk to, yet respects me and my decisions, and is always very supportive. She has seen me go through my ups and downs and I always come out of her sessions feeling that I was able to address the issues that has been on my mind. She is sex positive and understands polyamory, and does not judge me for being different. I think of her as an invaluable partner in maintaining my mental health.

Tania is a wonderful listener and really great at asking the sort of questions that open one up to answering in an honest and clear way. I'm feeling so much better for the experience of working with Tania, in working me out. It is a blessing to have someone walk with you and gently guide you as you walk through challenging times.
