Supervised by Nicole Ponce, LPC-S
I work with both adults and adolescents who struggle with anxiety, depressive symptoms, and self-destructive behaviors, and who want to change their patterns into a more productive and healthy future.
I have extensive experience in the complexity of teenage years, specifically counseling at-risk youth who are struggling making friends, having difficulties in school, transitional stages, and/or heading down the wrong path. I believe this is a building block towards adulthood, and every experience during this time is a teachable moment.
Additionally, I work full time with Harris County Sheriff’s Office counseling high profile incarcerated individuals. My experiences throughout childhood and adolescence drove my passion for working with high-risk youth and incarcerated individuals.
My own personal history showed me the importance of therapy, learning to work with and accept the anxieties and difficulties in life, and changing self-destructive coping methods into productive skills that can begin to benefit oneself and their future. I hope to help clients discover this in their own way through providing a safe space for processing and learning.
I utilize a multidisciplinary approach focusing on the body, mind, and soul. I believe that the client is the expert in their life and only they know what’s best for them. I use a wide variety of strategies, including existential theory, cognitive behavioral theory, and dialectical behavior therapy, to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses the main issues in client’s lives.
