Nice Meeting You!
Licensed Professional Counselor, MS, LPC-S
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (Supervisor) in San Antonio, Texas, with over 26 years of working in the field of psychology. From a car accident to domestic abuse or aftermath of childhood trauma, I help people through their journey. I meet them where they are and guide with instructions and clarity.
I have worked in various environments domestically and abroad, from Texas to Mexico. I have worked with many populations, including indigenous women, abused women, and other marginalized people. Throughout the years, I learned effective ways to treat trauma without re-traumatizing the person. Many times people avoid going into therapy because they do not want to relive the trauma. A person does not necessarily have to re-visit traumatic events to heal from it.
Using a variety of therapy models healing from trauma can be achieved. When a person has witnessed Domestic Violence or other types of trauma, it is most probable that they will experience PTSD symptoms. I am trained to treat PTSD to reduce and extinguish flashbacks, night terrors, or nightmares.
Through the therapeutic relationship, trust, self-awareness, insight, self-confidence, and a sense of self can be developed.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker, MA, LCSW
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker providing telehealth therapy services in Texas and New Mexico. I have over 12 years of experience in the mental health field between Southern New Mexico and San Antonio, TX. I have provided both in home and telehealth therapy since 2014 and exclusively telehealth since March 2020. I currently only provide telehealth services.
I have familiarity supporting individuals working through a wide variety of problems, such as difficulty adjusting to a significant life change or working through a traumatic event or episode that leads to depression, anxiety, and other issues.
As a clinician, my goal is to help people through their healing journey by meeting them where they are at and assisting individuals in regaining control of their mental and emotional self by increasing understanding of self and applying therapeutic tools.
I believe everyone deserves the opportunity to feel safe, comfortable, and happy in their lives and use various treatment models to assist individuals in achieving their own personal goals.
Licensed Professional Counselor, MS, LPC
I am a Licensed Professional Mental Health Counselor in the state of Texas. I completed my training at the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2017. Since completion, I have continued to work with individuals who suffer from acute mental illness. I am trained to use the Illness Management and Recovery manual, based on the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy method. Through my training, in both school and a variety of work environments, I have worked closely with individuals diagnosed with Substance Use Disorder, at-risk youth, and have educated parents to regain parental rights through the court system. My goal as a mental health counselor is to assist individuals in regaining self-confidence, self-awareness, and independence through the tools therapy provides.
Together we will work on building a therapeutic alliance that will allow you to identify problems that are getting in the way of a fulfilling life. This will help develop the necessary life skills to manage painful emotions. One area I like to focus on in therapy is mindfulness and learning how to stay present at the moment.
