Accepting Clients

No matter where you are now, you do NOT have to stay there. I collaborate with clients to develop skills, self-awareness, and gratitude.

Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate in San Antonio, TX
Supervised by Scott Peters, Ph.D., NCC, LPC-S

About My Clients

My counseling provides a safe place to heal from difficult experiences, develop skills, experience growth, and appreciate your strengths. I offer virtual & in-person counseling with teens and adults, couples, and families. My affirmative approach includes learning new skills and changing beliefs and behaviors that are no longer serving you, all in a supportive and accepting environment. If you are motivated to change your life and explore new perspectives, I look forward to working with you!

My Background and Approach

I individually tailor my approach for each client. This is your journey: you are the driver in your own vehicle and I am in the passenger seat with a map and some road trip food (for thought)! To give you an idea of what the map may look like, please contact me for a free consultation! I integrate cognitive behavioral and strengths based approaches in my work. Together, we will explore how your thoughts, behavior, and feelings are connected and how changes in one can result in overall improvement. We will also discuss your strengths, skills, resources, and sources of joy. You are much more than "what is wrong" - let's use what is right to make positive changes. I base my work in feminist, anti-racist, affirming, and trauma-informed perspectives. Broadly, this means that I acknowledge the impact that our family, society, and culture has on our perceptions and wellbeing.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am deeply motivated by a belief that we all deserve to experience joy and a healthy life. In and out of the counseling environment, I acknowledge my privilege while striving to promote equity, inclusion, and joy for all my clients. My years working in the LGBTQIA+ community allows me to use research and experience to assist all of my clients to reach their full potential. I treasure the opportunity to work with clients to not only overcome difficult experiences but also find strength, gratitude, and healthy bonds with others.
