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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

Additional information

My services include more than just a one-hour weekly session. It's important that the therapeutic work continues in between sessions in order for you to achieve your goals sooner. To support my clients, I provide weekly guidance with follow-up emails and check-in emails that include resources and activities specific to the client's topics in session. These additional exercises and materials are meant to further explore your issues and find new perspectives. Clients are able to send assignments, ask questions, and update me if they choose.  £90 for individuals, £120 for couples

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
