About me

Whether its work stresses, relationship issues, or challenging life transitions, it is normal to require guidance and support. I will give you the tools to overcome your issues by highlighting your strengths and skills, through psychological insight. We can work together to help improve your wellbeing. I am a bilingual therapist with over ten years experience in the mental health field working with individuals, couples and families. Your mental health is priceless so it is vital to ‘invest in you’ to improve your state of mind and outlook on life.

My experience includes working with those who suffer from depression, anxiety, and adjustment issues. My philosophy is based on the client/therapist relationship, strengths-based approach, and solution-focused therapy. I have worked in private practice and community based mental health clinics in the United States as a Licensed Professional Counselor, and I am now a registered therapist with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).

Training, qualifications & experience

In 2000, I received my Bachelor’s from the College of Santa Fe in Expressive Therapy. In 2007, I completed my Master’s in Community Counselling from the College of Santa Fe in New Mexico. I obtained my Licensed Professional Counsellor Credential (LPC # 65726) to practice counselling through the Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counsellors in 2011. I’ve worked in school-based health clinics where I counselled families, adolescents, and children dealing with behaviour issues, relationship problems, grief, abuse and trauma. In my private practice, I worked with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety and life stress. My client base has varied in socioeconomic states, ethnicities, and languages. Many times I worked with Spanish speaking clients. In 2018, I decided to make the move to the UK and I became a registered member of the BACP.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

There is easy access and parking around the back of the counselling office.

Availability

Work and life can make it hard to find time for counselling so I am available early mornings and evenings, as well as daytime hours.
