My professional perspective on healing is strengths-based and client-centric, coupled with evidence-based practical approaches. I have experience serving populations that include children, adults, families, and couples. I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, and trauma-related disorders. Treatment approaches include Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Brainspotting (BSP), Expressive Processing, and Play Therapy.

I am a graduate-level clinical mental health counseling intern. I am a graduate student at Grand Canyon University (Lopes Up!). I have nearly a decade of experience working in the behavioral health field and have experience working with diverse populations of children and adults throughout the Phoenix Metropolitan area.

I hold a safe, judgment-free, lively therapeutic environment to facilitate inclusivity and mental wellness. I believe that you are an expert on your own life, and the keys to conquering life's challenges are already within your reach and at your disposal. I appreciate your consideration for the opportunity to join you on your journey to healing and mental wellness. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
