I bring varied experiences and a wide range of skills to my practice. I served as a Special Education teacher for many years in the Corpus Christi, San Antonio, and Hill Country areas. I have worked with all levels of children with their varied learning styles and approaches and have acquired an appreciation for each child's/adolescent's individual learning approach.
I am EMDR trained which is an effective modality for working with the various trauma, anxiety, and other issues that get in the way of everyday functioning and relationships. Additionally, I am a Certified School Counselor, EC-6th General Education Teacher, and Special Education pre-K-12th grade. I am a Certified Juvenile Probation Officer which gave me the experience and furthered my knowledge and desire for working with those affected by Alcohol and Drug Abuse. I am certified as a Sexual Assault Crisis Counselor and am honored in working with these brave women, men, girls, and boys who are looking to make sense out of traumatic situations. I also specialize in Multisensory Brain Training for Dementia and ADD & ADHD clients.
I get great joy in writing about the passions in my life. I have authored two books. "My Crazy Ride to IRONMAN! One woman's triumph over ADHD, assault, and family dysfunction by crossing the finish line" is a book specifically written for teens and young adults who are going through obstacles in their lives. Topics include: violence, sexual assault, drugs & alcohol, bullying, getting healthy, ADHD, along with setting goals to work through issues. "Living Dementia and Depression Free with SET Therapy" was written to offer easy ways to incorporate simple steps to live life to the fullest by remaining dementia and depression free.
I am married and have one daughter who keeps me busy and jumping. I am also a personal trainer and enjoy an active lifestyle including marathon running, ironman triathlons, yoga, massage, nutrition and much more.
