Imperfections are not inadequacies; they are reminders that we’re all in this together.

About Me

I earned my Master of Arts in Counseling with a concentration in Marriage and Family Therapy, along with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a Minor in Communication from St. Edward's University.

As a Post-Graduate Therapist Associate, I provide affordable therapy to individuals, couples, and families at Austin Family Institute (AFI) in both English and Spanish. My passion is helping with transitional life experiences, depression, anxiety, stress, and multicultural issues. This is cultivated by AFI’s holistic training and support, backed by over 100 years of combined experience from our directors and faculty.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends at the Alamo Drafthouse or cuddling with my dog.
