My goal is to provide a comfortable and safe space, and establish a trusting therapeutic relationship. I stand by the concept that for change to occur we must gain self-awareness and insight. I am an independently licensed Professional Counselor with a master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Phoenix and a bachelor’s in psychology from Prescott College. I've had the pleasure to work in community mental health for nearly 20 years in my home town of Tucson, Arizona. In addition to a 40 hour work week at a mental and behavioral health agency, part of my time is spent at Bravura Counseling Services, PLLC. I've provided counseling services since 2014 for individuals and couples, ages 10 and above. I use approaches such as Cognitive behavioral therapy, Family systems, REBT, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and commitment therapy, Cognitive processing therapy, and EMDR. I have experience working with diverse populations and addressing general mental health such as bipolar, PTSD, anxiety, depression, ADHD, and personality disorders. I provide strategies to improve communication, emotional dysregulation, parenting, and more. Please note I only accept commercial insurance and coordination of benefits and eligibility is managed by my office manager Priscilla. Self-pay rates could vary.
