I entered the counseling profession to support individuals that are having difficulties facing life’s challenges. I have found that many people struggle not because they are not capable of overcoming them, but because they do not have the support and/or encouragement they need. I believe that as humanity becomes “busier”, life becomes more complicated affecting relationships and how we see ourselves fitting in the world. Life is often full of difficult and complicated experiences that are difficult to overcome, especially without support. Ultimately, these difficulties distract us from pursuing what enriches our lives.
My previous experience provided me with insight to work with people struggling with illness, trauma, substance use, death, spiritual, and existential issues – to name a few. I utilize existential and person-centered principles, as well as other evidenced-based practices such as Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) to help bring closure to underlying issues.
My areas of clinical focus are, but not limited to, veterans, first responders, trauma, depression, anxiety, substance use, grief/loss, spiritual, and existential issues. My goal is to provide a place of understanding and honest feedback so that all clients can safely gain awareness of their life’s challenges. I can provide all services in Spanish.
