My education consists of a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Hispanic Studies from the University of Michigan-Dearborn and a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Aquinas College. Currently, I am a Limited Licensed Professional Counselor (LLPC) in the State of Michigan, where I have the ability to diagnose and treat clinical mental health disorders. Through my limited licensure period, I continuously receive supervision from a fully Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), where I am able to improve my ability to treat and diagnose my clients.
I currently specialize in working with children, adolescents, and adults. As a native Spanish speaker, I am also able to provide clients with bilingual counseling sessions. This allows me to bridge the gap between many individuals who struggle with finding the appropriate services due to a language barrier. Additionally, during my career I’ve worked with clients to treat a variety of disorders including mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and depressive disorders. I have additionally worked with clients facing varying challenges including self-harm, suicidal ideation, and trauma.
Some of the techniques that I’ve been trained include Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), Play Therapy, and Person-Centered Therapy. Previously, I’ve also worked as a behavior technician, providing Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy (ABA) with children on the Autism Spectrum. While that continues to be a passion of mine, I am passionate about helping all clients find their voice, where they can have a safe place that allows them to be heard.
My goal is to provide individuals with a multiculturally sensitive, non-judgmental, compassionate, and safe environment, where they can feel heard. I strive to meet individuals where they’re at and help guide them on their path to achieving their mental health goals. My hope is that clients will learn and gain new tools to improve coping, relationships, and communication; allowing them to become their best selves.
