I have had the pleasure of studying mental health counseling for over 2 years and have learned to be a solutions-based person-centered counselor. My patients would hopefully work with me to achieve their goals. Creating an environment where they can express themselves and find solutions to their concerns is my goal. I am currently able to provide treatment remotely or in person and work with all ages. I speak fluent English and Spanish if a preference is had.

I am most experienced in working with adolescents and children with autism, ADHD, and ODD. This has led to my capability in behavioral techniques and skills. As a result, my strengths are presented through my patience, person-centered approaches, and establishing effective rapport with my clients. 

I can attend to clients without insurance which is one of the biggest obstacles for pursuing mental health treatment. It brings me great pleasure that I can provide that option for others. I believe I can make other individuals feel comfortable expressing themselves and their feelings. I am kind, intuitive, patient, a great listener, and present! So please do not hesitate to contact me.

While away from work I am most likely to be playing sports (Pickleball and soccer, video games, movies, spending time with friends and family, or attending sporting events.

I would like patients to know that I am passionate about learning about others. Helping anyone willing to receive help and attain goals in their daily lives.
