I am a native Las Crucen, minus the 8-year stint I spent in Los Angeles. The land of enchantment is home, and the Organ Mountains are my North Star. I received my B.S. In Family and Child Science in 2016 and my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2023. I practice through a multicultural person centered lens. As a counselor, I don’t believe a “one-size-fits-all” approach to therapy exists. While I tend to utilize Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), especially thought-stopping and cognitive reframing, I believe there is value in being able to pivot depending on the client. I also like to incorporate Narrative therapy, Humanistic, Feminist Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Bibliotherapy, and mindfulness.
I am a wounded healer and believe in authenticity. I have spent the past few years working through my own trauma and breaking generational trauma. When I became a new mom with a child who had medical needs, I learned to be an advocate for myself and my child. I have a passion for new moms and parents. Parenthood can be challenging, and I want others to know that they aren’t alone. This past year I worked with a variety of kids ages 9 and older and came to the realization of the severity the pandemic had on society, especially our kids. I want to positively impact the next generation and ensure they thrive despite the challenges they may encounter. I have a strong voice for social justice. I am LGBTQIA and neurodivergent affirming. I am eager to help those in my community heal, learn, and become who they want to be. In my spare time, I am an avid reader, coffee connoisseur, and cat enthusiast. I also enjoy yoga, kickboxing, hiking, all things Disney, and adventures with my husband and kid.
