Get to Know Me

Bienvenidxs! Thank you for taking some time to get to know me a little bit more. I am a wife and a mom of two energetic and loving boys. I was born and raised in Mexico. After finishing high school, I moved to Texas. I graduated from The University of Texas-Pan American (now The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley) with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Sociology in 2009 and with a Master’s of Science in Social Work in 2011. In 2013, I obtained my License as a Clinical Social Worker.

I have experience working in community mental health and group practice settings. I also worked in the school system for almost 10 years. In 2021, I obtained the recognition as a Board Approved Clinical Supervisor, which means that I can provide clinical supervision to Licensed Masters Social Workers who want to pursue their clinical license. 

I have more than 10 years of experience working with teenagers and adults experiencing different difficult situations such as stress and worry, grief, loss and other life transitions, relationship concerns, self injurious behaviors, and trauma.  I offer a kind, warm, compassionate and caring therapeutic style.

Additional Trainings/Certifications: Certified Laughter Yoga Leader, Ace Interface Master Trainer, Dare to Lead Trained, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, Trained in Brainspotting, Internal Family Systems Informed (attending Phase 1 training in the fall of 2023). 

Core Values






What to Expect?

Therapy services will be provided online, using a secure and HIPAA compliant telehealth platform. During your initial visit, we will talk about what brings you to therapy and I will ask several questions regarding your history. Together, we will develop a treatment plan that will outline your goals, how you will meet your goals and the interventions that will be used in therapy to meet those goals. You will notice that some of the practices that will guide the therapeutic conversation are the mind and body connection, present-focused awareness and mindfulness, curiosity, vulnerability and self-compassion.  I specialize in Brainspotting and Internal Family Systems and if these approaches work for you, we will use them during our sessions. 

What is Brainspotting? 

"Brainspotting is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of other challenging symptoms".  More information

What is Internal Family Systems? 

"IFS is frequently used as an evidence-based psychotherapy, helping people heal by accessing and healing their protective and wounded inner parts. IFS creates inner and outer connectedness by helping people first access their Self and, from that core, come to understand and heal their parts".   More information
