Professional statement

Jasmine is a board certified and licensed professional counselor in Dallas, Texas. She is the founder and owner of The Affirming Space, PLLC and she provides telehealth services all throughout the state of Texas and Florida. She entered the counseling field in 2011 supporting the initiative to provide counseling to military service members and their families. It was actually during her military service that she was inspired to join this field and gain a vast appreciation for offering a holistic approach to client-centered therapy.

In addition to her doctoral work and clinical practice throughout the years, Jasmine has gained extensive experience counseling children, adolescents, adults, and couples in a multitude of different settings including counseling private practice, community mental healthcare, and the government setting. Treating and interacting with people from all walks of life and diverse backgrounds has also allowed her to understand the lens of social and cultural issues that affect mental health across the lifespan.

Jasmine’s therapeutic approach is integrative which is an evidenced-based approach that combines different therapeutic tools to best fit each client as an individual. She believes that everyone experiences life differently and so there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to counseling. Her approach aims to consider the unique needs of her clients.


Message to clients

I have ultimately gained a heart for working with the many diverse characteristics that my clients bring. I personally identify as multiethnic and I am bilingual in Spanish. I am passionate about working with those who feel they don’t always fit into the “right” categories. I also have personal and professional experience in working with individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds, the LGBTQ+ community, as well as military veterans. These experiences have allowed me to gain a profound empathy for the human experience and a great respect for the multitude of difficulties that people are facing.
