What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My work focuses on identifying, challenging, and limiting negative thoughts we have about ourselves and the world around us. I believe it is important to empower my clients with the tools they need to succeed. I graduated with my master’s from New Mexico State University in 2017, where I first started working with university students navigating the novel and stressful world of young adulthood. I have had the privilege of providing mental health services to first responders and their family members in my community. As a firefighter spouse myself, I am very familiar with the unique culture and stress these professions entail. I am a mother of a wonderful child diagnosed with ADHD, which led me on a long journey to better understand her neurodiverse mind. I understand firsthand the many challenges encountered in loving a child with ADHD. I have strived to be that guidance I so badly wished for those first years during the diagnosis process.
What should someone know about working with you?
I work with clients struggling with ADHD, depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am an ADHD-certified clinical service provider. My goal is to keep up with the newest information pertaining to ADHD to help my clients optimize their everyday lives and succeed in their dreams.
