Education & Experience

I’m a Houston native who went west for my education, receiving my Bachelor’s in International Studies and Spanish at Pepperdine University, and completing my Master’s in Social Work at University of Southern California with an emphasis in Children, Youth and Families. I’ve lived and traveled throughout Latin America and am passionate about providing services in Spanish as a bilingual clinician. I began my career in California working in community-based services that have ranged from settings such as residential treatment facilities, intensive home-based services, foster care, and adoption. I came back to my hometown of Houston a few years ago and continue to practice as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, specializing in youth and young adult mental health and trauma.
