I believe people can confront the more difficult parts of themselves in a safe therapeutic environment. I provide this in our sessions, bringing warmth & respect to the relationship. Additionally, being an animal lover inspired me to add Equine(horse) Assisted Psychotherapy to my practice. Together we will decide which environment works best to identify emotional & behavioral patterns that may not be serving you well today.
I feel it’s important to offer a nurturing yet challenging experience in therapy. Through increased awareness and insight, therapy will help you make healthier choices, and let go of old patterns. In time, you may see your difficulties through a different lens. You may feel a strength and wisdom that you haven’t felt before.
I have been in the mental health and counseling profession for over 20 years. I use a combination of eclectic theoretical perspectives including Faith-based. My area of expertise is trauma which includes PTSD, sexual/physical abuse, traumatic grief, domestic violence & complex trauma. I also treat people with depression & anxiety.
My diverse experience includes working with people from different cultural, ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds. I am bilingual, providing therapeutic services in English & Spanish for individual adults, couples, families, adolescent and children.
In addition to my private practice, Living Life Counseling & Coaching, I recently launched a number of Equine Assisted Therapeutic Programs. At Luna Tesoro Ranch our services include Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, Growth & Empowerment, riding lessons, horsemanship clinics and workplace team and leadership building. After an initial consultation, I will recommend a format designed to meet your needs. Stay tuned…as we continue to expand our animal assisted therapeutic programs.
