I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified School Counselor, practicing in our Helotes office. I received my Bachelors of Arts in Bilingual Education and my Masters of Education in School Counseling and Guidance from the University of Texas at Brownsville. I concluded my work towards my LPC with Texas A&M San Antonio.
My background experience includes working as Dual Language Educator for Brownsville ISD and Alamo Heights ISD and as a School Counselor for the Archdiocese of San Antonio.
I have immersed myself in Play Therapy and am working towards becoming a Registered Play Therapist. I currently provide play therapy practices for children as young as five years old. I provide parents strategies to use at home that will help decrease high emotions and improve connections.
I also service adolescents and adults. I strongly believe in everyones need to feel courageous and capable in their lives as well as everyones desire to connect with others and build strong relationships. I support and help foster these needs by building a safe therapeutic relationship with my clients as they grow and explore their inner world.
My theoretical framework for working with all clients is Client-centered Therapy. I utilize elements of Child-Centered Play therapy, Synergetic Play Therapy, Sand Tray Therapy, Mindfulness, Attachment Theories, Positive Psychology and and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
