FINDING CLARITY, FINDING YOU.
Nothing will work unless you do – Maya Angelou
I believe in treating an individual in the context of their environment, using practical strategies to help drive change. I find that there is nothing like helping people experience that “light bulb” moment when they realize a great truth about themselves. My greatest passion in life is helping people to better understand themselves and what makes them tick. As a psychotherapist, I aim to help individuals uncover what motivates their behavior and strengthen their belief in themselves, to live a fuller and more satisfying life.
Raised in El Paso, TX, and having lived in different countries, I have been trained and treated individuals from a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
HOW I CAN HELP
In sessions, clients and I work to discover solutions for the challenges keeping them from living the best version of their lives. In particular, I specialize in working with adults, adolescents, and teens struggling with anxiety and depression, achieving work/life balance, life transitions and employment difficulties, parenting challenges, and spiritual or existential conflicts.
