I adapt a very person-centered approach through the use of motivational interviewing. However, I borrow interventions from cognitive-behavioral, existentialist, spiritual and psychoanalytical styles based on the particular need of the client.
Treatment planning will be a very big part of our counseling experience. I work to ensure that my clients are getting exactly what they need out of counseling. In order to do this, we will spend our first session carefully identifying goals, and hashing out the details needed to achieve those goals. After all, it is understood that the more you define a goal, the more likely you are to follow through with it.
"To be present, truly is a gift" We are so busy moving forward in our lives, always looking ahead for the next thing coming our way. To be here, and truly appreciate the here and now is a blessing in itself. To have somebody else to truly share this moment with, can be a life-changing experience.

I begun my career as a counselor like many others might, practicing on undergraduate students throughout the length of counseling school. As I began to grow, I received an opportunity to work at Mercy Ministries of Laredo, focused primarily on diabetic populations. I learned a lot about the importance of motivating and maintaining change, as well as adapting to new life circumstances. Additionally, I have worked at SCAN, INC. serving troubled teenager and parent populations. This position taught me a lot about the current substance use crisis our country is facing. Currently I do work for A Healthy Image C&CS, a private agency which serves Federal Prison populations. I have learned a lot about inspiring positive change amongst very high-risk populations, planning around obstacles that may cause relapse or recidivism. Overall, I believe there are no bad people in this world, only bad choices. We are all capable of making positive change in our life, but we can't do it alone.
