Hello, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who has been called to serve and help others navigate their way through this journey called life. I have plenty of years of experience working with individuals from all walks of life. I would classify myself as an eclectic individual and approach situations from various lenses. I do, however, specialize in trauma-informed care. I am EMDR trained and believe in meeting people where they are, providing unconditional positive regard and finding congruence within each story.
I have experience working with depression, addiction, anxiety, couples, family systems, children and much more. I also specialize in play and sand tray therapy to help those who might struggle with communication, find their voice and the ability to express their deepest thoughts and emotions. I am bilingual and fluent in Spanish (speaking, reading and writing).
Through the use of Faith-based therapy, EMDR, CBT, DBT, play therapy or sand tray, I am confident the help you are looking for is attainable by simply walking through my doors. I believe in loving people through their journey. Love can conquer all.
Hola, soy un consejero profesional con licencia que ha sido llamado para servir y ayudar a otros a recorrer este camino llamado vida. Tengo muchos años de experiencia trabajando con personas de todos los ámbitos de la vida. Me clasificaría como un individuo ecléctico y abordaría situaciones desde diferentes lentes. Sin embargo, me especializo en el cuidado del trauma informado. Estoy capacitado en EMDR y creo en reunirme con las personas donde están, brindando una consideración positiva incondicional y encontrando congruencia dentro de cada historia.
Tengo experiencia trabajando con depresión, adicción, ansiedad, parejas, sistemas familiares, niños y mucho más. También me especializo en terapia de juegos y bandejas de arena para ayudar a aquellos que pueden tener problemas con la comunicación, encontrar su voz y la capacidad de expresar sus pensamientos y emociones más profundos. Soy bilingüe y domino el español (habla, lee y escribe).
A través del uso de la terapia basada en la fe, EMDR, TCC, DBT, terapia de juego o bandeja de arena, estoy seguro de que la ayuda que está buscando se puede obtener simplemente caminando por mis puertas. Creo en amar a las personas a través de su viaje. El amor puede conquistar todo.

Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a strong passion for helping people find meaning and healing in their walk through life. I completed my undergraduate degree in 2010 from the University of Oregon and my master’s degree in counseling in 2015 from Northwest Nazarene University. I utilize play therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, faith-based therapy and have a person-centered approach when helping clients. My goal is to provide every client with a safe place, free of judgment where they can unload and process through life yet leave with practical tools that will help them.
I have a passion for helping people from all walks of life. For starters, my professional experience centers around working with children, adolescents, and families as they navigate changes and challenges of child development and parenthood. I prioritize involving parents and guardians in their child’s therapy to gain insight and tools to help the functionality of the family unit. Secondly, my desire is to assist women and young adults trying to process through hardships. My focus includes relationship issues, anxiety, depression, attachment, life stressors, transitions, and many other presenting issues. I believe in always putting forth my best effort to meet you where you are as a client.
A healthy relationship between client and therapist is essential to the therapeutic process. Therapy can be intimidating and taking this step can be hard. I admire the strength and courage that my clients take to embark on this journey. You are not alone. We will work together to develop a plan that fits your unique needs.
