About Me

Have you lost sight of hope due to emotional stress, anxiety, past trauma and abuse, or as a result of difficult relationships? I believe hope is what drives emotions, relationships, job satisfaction, and life fulfillment. And I believe hope is the light that leads back to a full life. Therefore, my practice is based on hope. I always keep hope before me, and I will help you find your way back hope as we work through your struggles and emotions.
I am a Christian (a Christ-follower) and a bilingual English and Spanish counselor who treats individuals and families. My specialty is treating those with traumatic experiences, such as childhood sexual or physical abuse, along with treating those with Depression and other severe emotional disorders, such as Bipolar or Schizoaffective Disorder. I am also experienced in treating individuals diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. I also regularly treat other individual struggles such as anxiety, self-esteem problems, and other life difficulties.
I believe a trusting and honest relationship with my client is key in a healing therapeutic relationship. My approach to treatment combines client-centered with cognitive behavioral and narrative therapy interventions. Every individual is unique, so my approach will be tailored to your unique needs
Any struggle can be difficult to overcome. When necessary, there's nothing wrong with asking for help. I believe I can guide you and help you find your fulfillment in Christ. I believe you can and will have victory over your challenges, gain new perspective, and find renewed hope!

Mindy is one of the best, if not the best, counselors I've ever had in my life. She stuck with me for several months and saw me through the ups and downs of my life, however crazy it got haha. Having made this incredible life transition in my life, I can say that it's been very successful so far and a bold Testament of my faith in something greater than myself. Mindy helped me strengthen that faith and now I can say that I feel more confident than ever to continue my journey in this new world with the wisdom I got from her. So I would recommend her to anyone who is struggling to find their way and follow their faith, Mindy is the best, guaranteed! P. S. And yes, I did get that mattress topper after all! My hands are held high!
