My Story



I have been living in Austin since 2018, and I love it. I am originally from the Rio Grande Valley, where I had lived for most of my life. I am fluent in English and Spanish with a strong focus on vocational rehabilitation counseling, career counseling, and academic counseling. I have been a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor for the state of Texas for three years serving individuals with a diverse of disabilities. 


I also enjoy reading, arts and crafts, bike-riding, watching T.V., and spending time with my son, Joshua.

 

Approach

For the past the past 9 years, my practice has been focused on academic counseling, vocational counseling, and mental health. I practice cognitive behavioral therapy and solution focus therapy. My approach differs from person to person, because it is tailored specifically to the person. My main goal as a psychotherapist is to help you identify and treat physical, emotional, and mental problems that you are facing. I am here to offer you informed choices and techniques that will allow you to choose how to solve these problems. My role is to give you the tools needed to help gain control of your emotions and find that inner voice that will allow you to continue coping with obstacles in the future.

I believe that a person is the expert and the owner of their own lives and they have the power to overcome anything. I believe that mental health as important as physical health and therapy can save lives. I believe everyone grows at a different rate. I believe feelings are important. I believe therapy is self-care.
