Psychotherapist & CEO

I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Master’s Degree in Social Work with a concentration in Mental Health at the University of Nevada Las Vegas.  I have over 8+ years of clinical experience across a variety of settings including inpatient psychiatric hospital, crisis intervention, mobile crisis assessments, outpatient, the Clark County School District (CCSD), and now in private practice.  I have provided administrative and clinical supervision to UNLV practicum students, CSW-interns, and licensed colleagues to enhance their knowledge base.  I work with children (ages 5-12 y/o), youth, adults, couples, families and maintain an affirming stance for individuals who identify as members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

My specializations include, but are not limited to treatment of adjustment disorders, anxiety, bipolar, depression, divorce challenges, schizophrenia, trauma, and more.  My passion for learning led me to return to school and working on a doctorate degree with emphasis in clinical psychology.  I am invested in always seeking additional clinical skills to add to my toolbox to help all my clients.  What differentiates me from other clinicians in the Vegas valley is that I have an innate ability to establish rapport, build trust, compassionate, empathetic listener and relate to individuals from all walks of life. 


I view the therapeutic process as an alliance between the client and myself and consider my clients as the experts of their lives.  I use a variety of treatment modalities such as Art Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Client-Centered, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Family Systems, Motivational Interviewing, and others.  My theoretical approach is based on the belief that my clients are in control of their therapeutic experience.  I look forward to meeting you and working with you.

Over the course of my career, I have worked in positions where my duties include conducting psychosocial assessments for new patients admitted to inpatient hospitals, providing emotional support and counseling, arranging treatment plans, teaching emotional, cognitive, and social skills, evaluating the needs of clients, connecting individuals and their families with necessary resources. I have provided services ranging from adolescence to late adulthood. I have held many roles as an advocator, educator, mediator, case manager, negotiator, and counselor.
