About

Therapy is a process of healing, growth, and change. Changing patterns that aren't working and creating positive change, while feeling more happiness in your relationships, work, family, life, and self. Therapy provides an opportunity to discuss struggles, decrease stress, increase understanding of self and others, find solutions, and create positive change. I am the owner of Alamo Counseling, a group private practice comprised of highly skilled, warm, and engaging therapists and educators. We implement evidence-based treatment with interventions from humanistic, cognitive-behavioral, and systemic therapies.
Our work together will include uncovering behavior patterns, thinking patterns, and maladaptive beliefs. I offer my clients constructive insights, guidance, and empathy, along with analytical feedback when appropriate.
The past 16 years of providing mental health services have been deeply rewarding and it is a privilege to be entrusted with the meaningful life stories and vulnerabilities of my clients. The moments of awareness and transformation that occur in this journey are truly an honor to witness.
