Approach & Philosophy

My philosophy is to provide you with quality counseling services in a safe, compassionate, respectful environment and promote personal growth and wellness for each individual.

I believe in helping individuals find life balance in body, mind and spirit to facilitate healing and inspire hope.

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.

You Deserve to Feel Great. I’m Here to Help.


I am native New Mexican with over 22 years of experience working in the counseling field. I spent the first 15 years of my career working in community mental health centers dedicated to working with the under-served populations of New Mexico. I have a wide range of clinical experience working with children, adolescents, families and adults.

I am a proud graduate of New Mexico State University. Go Aggies! I earned my Bachelor’s degree in psychology in 1995 and my Master’s degree in Counseling & Guidance in 1998. I have trained with Dr. Theresa Kestly from the Sand Tray Training Institute of New Mexico and Peggy Moore from EMDR NM. I have also been trained in the Circle of Security Intervention and implement with families.

As a professional, mother of 2 precious children and a wife to my incredible husband of 21 years, life can get hectic. I strive to “practice what I preach”. I diligently work towards life balance and wellness in this busy world of activity. I enjoy spending time with my family and connecting with friends. I love to read, dance, Zumba, practice yoga, meditate and travel.
