“Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it’s having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome. Vulnerability is not weakness; it’s our greatest measure of courage.” Brené Brown

From time to time, we all experience different life situations that can affect our emotional well-being. Although I do not know what challenges you may be facing right now, they have evidently affected you enough to bring you here, and I commend you for the courage you are displaying by seeking out therapeutic support. I realize this whole process can feel a bit scary at first, but the very fact that you are exploring your options is a sign of great strength and hope. Whether this is your first time engaging in therapy, or perhaps you are seeking out some extra support, it is my goal to provide you with a safe, confidential and nonjudgmental environment where you can express yourself freely and learn how to effectively address your unique challenges.

My clients, who have included at-risk adolescents, families, and people who were incarcerated or involved in the court systems for intimate partner violence, have described me as patient, respectful, and a bit witty. Some of the ways we have worked through anger, trauma, and depression have involved using mindfulness exercises, coping strategies and de-escalation strategies. It’s possible that you may be feeling stressed or overwhelmed by a job or relationship, or you’re navigating through the uncertainty of the pandemic, or you are possibly seeking to learn how to trust your inner voice and gain a better understanding of yourself. Regardless of what you are currently working on, you are not alone! I will work with you at a pace that feels safe and comfortable, and my frameworks, strategies and tools will be guided not only by the unique circumstances of your challenges, but also by the qualities and strengths I am sure we are to discover. We can figure this out together!

A little about me… I grew up in El Paso, TX, a city located on the U.S.-Mexico border. As a third generation Latinx man in Texas, I appreciate the culture and diversity that presented itself in a developing city. After I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature, I left the U.S. and taught English in South Korea for two years. When I returned to the U.S., I went to the University of Texas at Austin to obtain my Master’s degree in social work.

During my free time, I enjoy playing board games with friends, rock climbing, playing the piano, going on hikes, or salsa dancing with my partner.
