Zaira was born in Mexico and moved to the United States when she was only six years old, and she is still fluent in Spanish. From an early age Zaira knew that she wanted to make a difference in the life of others. When she began her studies at Texas A&M University she quickly fell in love with psychology and the ability to learn about others through engaging with them. After obtaining her bachelor’s degree, Zaira studied Counseling and Development and has obtained her provisional counselor license. Throughout her career Zaira has loved having the ability to provide a safe environment for clients to explore and process through difficult emotions, situations, and traumas. Zaira’s main goal in the counseling room is for clients to finish feeling relief, confidence, and growth within themselves. Zaira has experience working with children, adolescents, and adults and she utilizes a client centered approach that allows her to meet her client’s where they are. This client centered approach also allows her clients the opportunity to take charge in their sessions and focus their growth where they need it to go.
When she is not working and seeing clients, Zaira likes to spend her time with her boyfriend, family, friends, and her dog Zeus. Zaira’s self-care is centered around reading, watching feel-good tv shows, and going on walks with her dog.
Zaira is excited to begin working with you and helping you achieve your goals!
