My Background

I was born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico, and later moved to San Antonio, TX as a teenager. While in San Antonio, I pursued a degree in Neuroscience at Trinity University. Realizing my deep passion for mental health, I began my journey to becoming a psychologist. I am currently pursuing a PsyD in Clinical Psychology at William James College. While pursuing my graduate education in mental health I have lived briefly in Seattle and Boston. While I enjoyed my time on the coasts, I consider Texas my true home and am excited to finally be back.

I would best describe my approach as helping you meaningfully connect and make sense of your psychological, physiological, and social experiences. We will explore together how the interconnectedness of biological, psychological, and social factors could influence your mental health. I will help you gather insight, and enact meaningful, positive change. At the same time, I acknowledge that you are the expert of your own experience, and it is paramount that you dictate the direction and rhythm of therapy.

I also utilize behavioral medicine techniques such as mindfulness, meditation, guided imagery, autogenic training, progressive muscle relaxation, diaphragmatic breathing, and clinical hypnosis. I have also received some training and have had the opportunity to implement other approaches such as CBT, DBT, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Jungian dream analysis.

A Few Fun Facts or Interests:

Beyond my work as a clinician, I enjoy playing guitar, practicing martial arts, and listening to podcasts and audiobooks. I look forward to the opportunity to get to know you better!
