About

It has been a privilege to assist children, adults, and families in times of changes, uncertainty, adjustments, and struggles. Life throws us curves sometimes and we may feel stuck due to behaviors, influences, & circumstances. There are many different reasons to seek counseling in all stages of your life. Some reasons are to understand yourself and others better, improve communication, to assist with marital changes, and difficult life changes or moments. I would like to help assist you in a safe & therapeutic environment to provide some tools, support, or coping and problem solving skills in a nonjudgmental & caring environment. I am trained in numerous therapeutic approaches.
In a counseling session we will explore emotional and cognitive barriers, past and present relationships, and collaboratively devise therapy goals. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, certified school counselor, certified teacher, Prepared & Enrich counselor for couples, completed Level 1 & 2 training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and trained in Emotionally Focus Therapy (EFT) for couples.
I also have over 12 years of experience working in a large business environment and over 8 years of experience working in an educational setting. I love working with children, adults, couples, & families. I am located in north San Antonio offering day, evening and Saturday appointments.
