Welcome. I know how difficult it is to seek mental health assistance, and am so grateful that you were able to recognize your need for professional health. This shows a level of awareness that many never acknowledge. I hope I am able to assist you in obtaining the kind of life you are seeking by working through the issues you are currently experiencing.
I have been working in the Mental Health field since I graduated with my Master’s of Arts in Clinical Psychology in 2006. I graduated from The University of Texas-Pan American, which is now The University of Texas-RGV. I have worked with a diverse population. I have worked with teenagers for many years, covering various topics, including, depression, anxiety, social skills, life transitions, sexuality, and many more. I like to develop a positive relationship with parents as well as their children, as they are the most influential people in a teenager's life. I understand what it is like to experience mental health issues, including, self-injury and thoughts of suicide. I also understand what it feels like to be a client in the therapeutic relationship. I work well with individuals experiencing depression and/or anxiety but welcome any and all issues as they develop. I work hard to help build the therapeutic relationship and foster trust and caring, as these are the building blocks of any relationship.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Self esteem
- Bipolar disorder
- Coping with life changes
I also have experience in LGBT, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Eating disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, ADHD

Amazing interaction with my daughter right from the start. Always has parents and child’s best interest at heart and is able to be professionally objective. So lucky we found her!
Jodi helped me work through some harsh depressive times. I particularly liked her responsiveness and flexible methods. She was kind when I was feeling low and it felt good to have someone I can reach out to when I couldn't do much with my day.
