I have more than 35 years of combined professional practice/experience in Mental Health, Human Services, and Higher Education. The client population I served are: children-adolescents, young adults, middle adults, and older adults from diverse cultural/ethnic backgrounds with a wide range of personal, relational, behavioral, and mental health issues.

- MHMRA-Harris County (now Harris Center for Mental Health, focusing on treatment of patients with mood disorders, psychotic disorders, and children-adolescents with behavioral problems);

- Montrose Counseling Center, a LGBTQIA+ United Way Human Services agency, where I completed my doctoral internship in Counseling and later worked as a part-time LPC and LMFT psychotherapist;

My doctoral dissertation was in the area of Clinical Supervision and I serve as a clinical supervisor for LPC, LMFT and LSOTP interns seeking licensure. I have also served as practicum site clinical supervisor for graduate students in clinical psychology, counselor education, clinical mental health counseling, human services, addictions counseling, and marriage and family therapy.
