I am originally from Mexico, and  I have lived in East Texas for the past fourteen years. I am mother of three wonderful children. I have always been passionate about working to help others, and this has allowed me to collaborate in several social projects. I graduated from The University of Texas at Tyler with my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. I am now pursuing my Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in Neuropsychology. My areas of interest include teens and adults who struggle with behavior and emotional problems, including anger management, anxiety, depression, trauma, and minority psychology.

I am originally from El Paso. I have a wonderful son (age 5) and fiancé. I am currently a graduate student at the University of Texas at Tyler, pursuing my master’s degree in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in Neuropsychology and on the LPC track. Post-graduation I plan on pursuing licensure as a Licensed Psychological Associate and hope to serve underserved populations, such as the Hispanic community. The areas that interest me include neuropsychological/memory tests, autism spectrum disorder, and trauma. Prior to joining the practice, I was a graduate teaching assistant for cognitive and physiological psychology classes at the university and a contracted translator for a children's therapy company. Much of my free time is spent with family and friends.
