Healing comes in different forms and I am here to partner with you in that journey of healing and curious exploration.

What I do:

I am a Mexican-American, cisgender female, located in San Antonio, Texas. I am dedicated to partner with you on your journey to mental and emotional well-being.

Inspired by the words of Carl Jung, “Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside awakens,” [1] I embrace that my evidenced-based and interpersonally oriented approach to healing assumes you have the strengths and resilience within you to be the person you want to be. I believe that healing is a holistic process, encompassing emotional, physical and psychological dimensions. Through therapy, you can gain insight, build resilience, and develop a new sense of self and coping skills needed to thrive.

Anxiety, depression, trauma, addictions, parenting issues, persistent chaotic patterns and unsatisfying relationships do not have to be your standard. I hope you can find unshakable safety while we explore the depths of complex emotions to experience profound healing.

Through my work I have gained a compassion and love of the human experience. I believe that together you can work towards mental clarity, emotional balance, and renewed purpose. Wherever you are in your story, you are welcome here and I welcome you to partner with me on your journey.

Education & Training

I earned my masters at the University of Houston-Graduate College of Social Work. Since 2016 my work has focused on supporting those who experience complex trauma, transitioning into adulthood, social issues, and supporting those healing from hurtful relationships.

I am a Licensed clinical social worker and board approved supervisor (LCSW-S) as well as a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC). I am trained in EMDR and my work is influenced by psychodynamic, cognitive, somatic and attachment theory. Research shows that the greatest indicator that someone will benefit from therapy is the trust built within the therapeutic alliance. I believe in you and welcome you to partner with me.
