“We need to give each other the space to grow, to be ourselves, to exercise our diversity. We need to give each other space so that we may both give and receive such beautiful things as ideas, openness, dignity , joy, healing, and inclusion.” — Max De Pree
I view my treatment approach as person-centered, multicultural, and integrative. My approach is to view you as the expert in your life experiences. With this approach I am able to meet you where you are and modify the treatment approach to your needs. I strive to be culturally sensitive and empathetic while you allow me to be a part of your journey. My approach is to use cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused therapy as evidence based techniques. My goal is to provide a safe and trusting environment for you to help you on your journey to healing.
I received my BA from The University of Texas at Austin in Hispanic Studies and Government. I went on to receive a Master’s in Social Work degree from The University of Texas at San Antonio. During my post-graduate studies I had the opportunity to work with children and adolescents in a partial hospitalization role. Furthermore, I had the opportunity to work with undocumented minors and their families who sought refuge due to traumatic events in their home country. Finally, I have experience in an Intensive Outpatient Program where I had the opportunity to work with adults from 20-65 years of age who sought help with depression, anxiety, paranoia, suicidal ideations, self-harm, hallucination, and manic episodes. By building a trusting relationship we would work together to accomplish your goals.
I'm a family man at heart. My wife and I are high school sweethearts and have been married for ten years now. We have two beautiful daughters together and one more girl on the way. As you can imagine, our girls keep us very busy. As a family, we enjoy going on hikes, camping, and watching Disney movies! When I have time for myself, I love to go on long runs, fish with my brother, and play or watch any type of recreational sports, especially basketball.
