"I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." Galatians 2:20
Each of us was created uniquely with a purpose, and it is not only my passion but a privilege to join in highlighting that purpose with those I meet in my work. Each of us has a story to tell, and I believe God uses our experiences, blessings, and hardships to help shape us into the individuals he has destined us to be. When heartache, trauma, and pain are experienced, we can often lose sight of God’s promises. Through love, empowerment, and connection, healing is possible, and a bridge is created in seeing the promises from God more clearly. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11.
My experience lies in the areas of attachment, trauma, anxiety, depression, PTSD, life transitions, and relational problems. I am passionate about working with children, adolescents, and families to help clients more wholly connect with themselves and others. I enjoy seeing the beauty and strength within those I work with, and I feel grateful for the opportunity to support clients in seeing and understanding such strength and bringing more awareness to God’s love for them. “So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in them.” 1 John 4:16
My educational background includes a bachelor’s/master’s in social work from New Mexico State University. I am currently licensed as an LMSW. The counseling approach I utilize draws from Person-Centered, CBT, Family Systems, and Attachment theory. Seeking support is a brave choice, and I enjoy meeting clients where they are emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. I can provide empathy in approaching every client’s healing journey in a trusting, safe, and connected manner. We are not alone in our challenges, nor do we have to carry them alone. “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10. I believe that we are all put on this earth for a reason. We are all meant to achieve our greatest self and live out our lives with purpose and live them out fearlessly. It is an honor to support clients on that journey.
I look forward to meeting and working with you soon!
