MEET OUR TEAM
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Texas A&M University and my Master’s in Guidance and Counseling from The University of Texas at El Paso. I view counseling not only as my profession but also my passion; I feel that counseling can be a valuable resource to individuals, couples, and families, addressing everyday concerns as well as deep, life-altering realities that shape who we are. Collaborating with my clients is a rewarding experience and meaningful responsibility. I deeply value each person that I work with and desire to see them succeed in the positive changes they are working towards.
I have experience in the treatment of depression, anxiety, mood disorders, adjustment disorders, post-traumatic stress, eating disorders, relationship issues, assertiveness training, and grief/loss. My areas of specialization include trauma and PTSD, domestic violence, survivors of sexual assault, abuse, or trafficking, relationship issues, and life cycle transitions. As a Christian, I believe that Jesus Christ is the ultimate source of healing, wisdom, and freedom, and I am comfortable incorporating these themes within counseling at my client’s request. I have also counseled clients with a variety of faith backgrounds, and do not impose my own beliefs upon any client. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as other evidence-based treatment modalities; I believe our thoughts can affect our emotions and behaviors and I often work with clients through this framework. I also enjoy helping clients build on their existing strengths and resources to achieve their goals. My clients’ ability to feel safe, respected, and understood is of upmost importance to me in my counseling relationships.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter, hanging out with friends, cooking, running, listening to music, and reading.
