I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist-Associate. I received my Bachelor’s in Psychology from the University of San Diego in 2004. I then went on to complete a Master’s degree in Marital and Family Therapy from Loma Linda University in California. I have facilitated groups and have worked with individuals, families and couples. I also have experience working with individuals who have substance abuse issues and with those who have experienced domestic violence/abuse. I have an interest in working with families, adolescents, self-esteem issues, women's issues, couples, infidelity and pre-marital counseling. I have completed Level 2 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and I use Gottman Method Couples Therapy in my work. I am fluent in Spanish and can offer therapeutic services in Spanish.
I use solution-focused techniques with clients to help identify and set goals. I also enjoy using solution-focused techniques to help clients attain motivation and to facilitate growth and identify strengths. I am a Pre-Clinical Fellow in the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT), and a member of the San Antonio Association for Relational Therapists (SAART). I am a New Professional member of Texas Association for Marriage & Family Therapy (TAMFT).
I have been married for 13 years and have two daughters and a son who keep me quite busy. I enjoy watching movies, traveling, indulging in self-care techniques, reading books and trying new and fun places to eat. I look forward to working with you and helping you along this journey!
