About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker endorsed by the New Mexico Association for Infant Mental Health as a Level III Infant Mental Health Specialist. I have experience in child protective services and school social work. My background in counseling incorporates working with individuals of all ages to include infants, children, adults, and families. I specialize and have had extensive training in working with children ages 0-5 and their families. I pride myself in being trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), and Circle of Security™ Parenting and Classroom. My practice is relationship-based, strengths-based, and trauma informed.

Education & Experience
