|I am a native Texan with 17 years of counseling experience. I work with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. I earned a Master's Degree in Counseling from A & M University in Prairie View in 1999.
I am licensed by the State of Texas and the State of Colorado as a Licensed Professional Counselor, Nationally Certified as a Master Addiction Counselor, Substance Addiction Professional and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. I have various certifications which include helping people with disabilities. My licenses and certifications have given me the opportunities to help clients in the area of mental health, substance abuse, addiction, co-occurring, and PTSD diagnoses.
My education and experience has allowed me to work with groups, couples, and individuals of various ages in private, outpatient, intensive outpatient, and integrate-care clinical environments. It is rewarding for me, as a psychotherapist, to be given the opportunity to help others develop personal skills that can empower them to experience emotional, social, and spiritual wellness.
I consider myself an Eclectic Counselor meaning that I select the most effective approach to help the clients achieve their treatment goals. This may include but not limited Cognitive Behavior, Client-Centered, Motivational, Solution Focus, and Strength-Based practices. I view each individual holistically knowing that total wellness means being spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically and socially healthy.
I am bilingual and speak English and Spanish.
