I have over 40 years of clinical and consulting experience. I provide services to companies contracting with Employee Assistance Programs and national managed care companies. I work with individuals, couples, groups and families in my private practice. I also provide clinical supervision to individuals seeking counseling licensure.
I have developed numerous training manuals and have presented training to both the private and public sectors across the state. I retired as the Campus College Chair for the University of Phoenix's College of Social Sciences programs (Counseling and Human Services) at the end 2014. I was also an instructor for the University of Phoenix's Master of Science in Counseling/Mental Health Counseling and Bachelor of Science in Human Services programs until 2016.
I received my Ph.D. in Counseling through the Counselor Education Department at the University of New Mexico in 1991. I'm a National Certified Counselor and a Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor. I served as President of the New Mexico Mental Health Counselors Association in 1994 and again in 2008 - 2009 and also served as the NMMHCA Publications Chair for several terms. I am also a member of the American Counseling Association and the American Mental Health Counselors Association.
I have two sons, two adorable grand daughters and a sweet little grandson. I love to read and am learning how to "paint" using digitial art (sketching on an iPad).
