Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3: 5-6 NLT
I am a licensed social worker and I have been providing therapeutic services and support to individuals and families in New Mexico for over five years. In my career, I have specialized in providing case management support to individuals and families. I have worked as a medical social worker supporting individuals with chronic and life-long illness. I provide therapeutic counseling for adolescents and families. I enjoy providing practical support and equipping individuals and families with the tools they need to thrive regardless of their situation and circumstances. I use an eclectic approach to therapy, and specialize in CBT, family systems and implementing a strengths-based approach.
I specialize in women’s issues, including trauma, abuse, and post-abortive healing. I am passionate about ending abusive and negative family cycles. My training and life experiences have empowered me to help women cope with pain, disappointment and heartbreak. God is close to those who experience painful heartbreak and rejection. “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Psalms 34:18 NIV. My desire to support women to find long-lasting healing from their trauma and broken relationships. I believe that as women, we are able to rise above difficulties and be overcomers with God’s help.
“ No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” Romans 8:37 NIV
Often, God allows hardships and difficulties in our lives to redirect us and to draw us closer to Him. Although we may not know the reason for the difficulty or pain we are experiencing, there is a purpose behind our pain. I wish to meet you where you are and support you in finding purpose in your healing journey.
