    Let's get started

    I received my Master’s in Art Therapy and Counseling. While getting my degree I also trained in play therapy and sand tray therapy.

    Then as I started my career with a nonprofit in NM, I began training in several different types of behaviorally based therapy. I have been trained in CBT, DBT, EMDR, ACT and Motivational interviewing.

    Currently, I have settled into a mixed model based on each client’s individual needs. I believe mental health is best treated in a multimodality way. Most client’s need to learn coping skills, healthy communication and boundary setting while also incorporating healthy lifestyle choices into their daily lives. With those new skills and knowledge, a client can be on their way to daily improvements. By breaking down change into small obtainable goals, this all is very doable. (As a general rule I practice what I preach).

    I have been a therapist for over 10 years now.

    Prior to getting into private practice, I worked for nonprofit organizations and in the criminal justice system. I saw little change within those organizations and got frustrated with limited community referrals for those clients. That is when I went to private practice to help those clients as well as others needing expertise in my areas of service.
