“Each tick-tock is a second of life that passes, flees, and it does not repeat itself. And there is so much intensity in it, so much interest, that the only problem is knowing how to live it. Let each one solve it however they can.” – Frida Kahlo
“Cada tic-tac es un segundo de la vida que pasa, huye, y no se repite. Y hay en ella tanta intensidad, tanto interes, que el problema es solo saberla vivir. Que cada uno lo resuelva como pueda.” – Frida Kahlo
Everyone’s journey has its own twists and turns. There will be times when it feels like the journey is too difficult to continue alone. It is okay to ask for help when the path may not be so clear. In Eva’s therapy, goals are discussed together, and she will support you while creating a safe environment to help foster your growth. She believes in the importance of self-identity development and learning from past experiences. Eva sees the person as they are and uses their story to help develop fresh solutions or ways to cope with issues. Eva’s person-centered lens helps ensure that everyone receives the attention and treatment that they deserve.
Eva received her Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Columbus State University. She attended Columbus State University for her Bachelor of Science degree where she majored in Health Science. Eva joined Summit Counseling in July 2023. Eva previously interned at a nonprofit organization in Columbus Georgia. During that time, Eva provided individual counseling services to diverse populations including children, teens, women in transition homes, adults, and the elderly. Eva also provided group counseling for anger management, sexual assault, domestic violence, women’s empowerment, sexual minorities, coping with an addiction, financial literacy, and social/communication skills. Eva has experience working with various mental health concerns including trauma, depression, low self-esteem, and anxiety. Before working in the mental health field, Eva also worked in public health. Through her observations of social support services, Eva recognized the need for mental health counselors and gained knowledge of the importance of overall wellbeing.
When Eva is not counseling, she can usually be found spending time with her family and friends, attending live music events, running, and visiting beautiful scenery. Eva enjoys staying involved in her community by attending outreach events and helping run resource fairs. Being an immigrant herself Eva’s passion is to ensure other immigrants are given the opportunities they need to reach their goals.
