Mayra’s extensive education and experience make her an ideal therapist for quite a few populations who are facing struggles in their lives. Her passion for helping others in ways that are measurable and meaningful has led her to pursue multiple degrees. She holds two BAs – one in psychology, and another in philosophy, allowing her both the knowledge of psychological constructs and the insight to help treat psychological issues. Additionally, she holds a masters degree in Clinical Psychology with a sub-specialization in cognitive behavioral therapy, a modality of treatment with more research supporting its positive outcomes than most all other therapy methods. Currently, Mayra is pursuing a doctorate in counseling psychology, wanting to take her ability to treat clients to the next level, and contribute to the field with relevant research in relationship functioning.
During Mayra’s impressive clinical career, she has worked for Baylor College of Medicine, providing evidence-based therapies to teenagers, and to parents of autistic children needing assistance with interventions. She has also worked specifically with survivors of sexual abuse, and more generally, with all populations through a community based mental health clinic.
Mayra has extensive training in providing cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and also works with clients using narrative and strength based modalities of treatment. Currently, she is training in couples therapy, including Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and John Gottman’s acclaimed treatment methods so that she can provide couples with cutting edge interventions to help them build or restore their relationships.
Supervised by Aaron Bunker, MA, LPC-S, Mayra’s work with her clients is insightful and uniquely tailored to each individual or family’s needs. Personally, Mayra enjoys morning coffee, doing yoga, and watching tv with her dog.
