I received my MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from New Mexico State University with Minors in Integrated Behavioral Health and Dance Education in May 2020. I am now a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with experience working with pediatric and adult clients in inpatient, partial hospitalization, and college counseling settings. I like working from a Narrative Therapy perspective which means I take into consideration all factors that contribute to a client’s life story including culture, family, and personal experiences. I also incorporate various techniques from mindfulness, DBT, and CBT and I have special interests in expressive arts, dance movement, yoga, and play therapies. Prior to pursuing a career in counseling, I earned a BS in Microbiology and MS in Biology, minoring in Biochemistry and Dance from NMSU. I am excited to serve the community in which I grew up in incorporating all my passions to support my clients!
