In our busy and sometimes stressful lives, self-care is imperative. Tending to our own mental health may become necessary if the struggle becomes overwhelming to manage alone. Once you’ve made the decision that therapy is the next step for you, finding the right neutral, compassionate, non-judgmental and empathetic therapist is of the utmost importance. My mission is to build a therapeutic alliance with you using a collaborative approach to reach your goals. The evidence-based approaches and interventions that I use are designed to assist you in further identifying and tapping into the strengths you already possess.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy (2013), and I am currently working towards completing a doctoral degree in Couple and Family Therapy at University of Iowa. I enjoy working with children over the age of 12, adults, couples, and families. I am also fluent in Spanish and enjoy working with our Hispanic and military communities.

I specialize in working with clients who are experiencing anxiety, depression, life changes, low self-esteem, and mood disorders. I am also able to assist with parenting skills and am passionate about working with families and couples in establishing effective ways to strengthen relational connections.
