Congratulations on taking a step towards healing! I have experience working with concerns around sex and sexuality (LGBTQIA+ welcomed), substance use/addiction, anxiety, depression, trauma, family of origin, support with work/life balance, medical professionals with vicarious trauma, isolation and loneliness, support with healthy attachment. The most important variable in successful therapy is the individual's feelings of trust and safety with the therapist. My first goal is to create a space where you feel comfortable to be yourself.

Many people see therapy as a one-sided conversation, full of psychobabble and jargon. That is definitely not me! I want to help you achieve the solutions and life changes you are looking for while learning about yourself in new ways. Life is too short to surrender to depression, bad relationship patterns, or let trauma control us. Therapy gives us new tools to deal with life on life’s terms and the benefit of an objective, third-person perspective. We absolutely can be free of emotional pain and find meaning in our lives if we believe change is possible, we want to change, and we are willing to do the work.

Sometimes life is hard. At times, the things that seem to work in the past don’t work as well anymore. Counseling is designed to help people overcome hard times by partnering with them to find resolution and wellness. Counseling can improve your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being as well as your relationships with others. You may have specific issues to address or just want to enhance your day-to-day living. I view counseling as a way to enrich your life. Over many years of experience, I’ve had the privilege of walking alongside countless people as we successfully find solutions to their mental health and addiction issues.

We are multifaceted beings that in a daily basis participate in different arenas. We may divide our time between home, work, school and our community. However, what happens when we are spread to thin? Or, when we are not meeting our full potential in one of those areas. This may cause uncertainty and doubt. We may feel stuck and unsure about how to move forward. If any of this resonates with you, let's meet to discuss how I can assist you in forging a clear path towards your goals.

Life is not always perfect. There are ways to live through difficult moments a little easier. I like to think of counseling like a space where you get to explore, connect, and grow. There are many unpleasant moments in life that we carry and need healing. Finding the right counselor and space to heal and move on from painful memories is important. Counseling can sometimes feel scary, but when you don’t feel balanced it can carry into other aspect of your life. Like I tell my clients “I’m here for your counseling journey, for the great sessions and the bittersweet ones too”.

I believe in a therapeutic process that revolves around life's changes and the journeys it takes us on. Choosing to change your focus is a powerful way of transforming any situation. Focusing on the positive doesn't mean that we are denying reality or avoiding what isn't working. It simply allows us to work from a grounded place in order to make the most informed decision from a less emotional place of clarity. Within our sessions, the goal is to cultivate a trusting and collaborative therapeutic relationship where an individual can bring their full self into session without any fear.

What type of McAllen mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in McAllen?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
