Meet Alma, a true-blue Austinite for over two decades, who’s passionate about her community and its diverse tapestry. Alma’s a language whizz, fluent in both English and Spanish, which makes her an invaluable asset to Austin Therapy for Girls. With an impressive toolkit of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, EMDR, and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Alma emphasizes on strengths, cultural sensitivity, interpersonal bonds, systems, and above all, putting the client first.
Alma has a heart of gold and a passion for social justice. She’s all about amplifying the voices of marginalized communities, especially minority girls and women. And when she’s not busy with work, Alma is a proud mom of three boys, all learning and growing in AISD dual language schools. Plus, let’s not forget her furry sidekick, Frankie the boston terrier!
