It's not a sign of weakness to feel overwhelmed. Our lives can be complicated. Sometimes, our feelings and emotions get the best of us. As a result, we can feel confused, sad, disconnected and angry. Explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences while in a confidential and comfortable counseling environment. Through the counseling process, you can gain a deeper understanding of your own behaviors, choices and decisions.
I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) with a Masters degree in Counseling & Educational Psychology from New Mexico State University. NMSU's counseling program is accredited through CACREP, an independent body dedicated to counseling excellence. I also earned a Masters degree in Sociology from Florida International University in Miami.
I have been counseling in Las Cruces for the past 10 years, and I have been teaching community college courses for 20 years. I use the foundations of counseling and sociology to help bring about "enhanced well-being through greater self-awareness".
