Rusti Garcia, MS, LPC Associate

Supervised by Dr. Shawna Munson, LPC-S, LMFT-S

Hello, my name is Rusti Garcia. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate under the supervision of Dr. Shawna Munson, LPC-S, LMFT-S.

Prior to seeking a career in the Mental Health field, I worked as a Bereavement Coordinator for a hospice company. This experience opened my eyes to the need for mental health professionals and my heart to care for people’s mental health. While working there, I followed this passion, went back to school, and obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology from Walden University in 2021. I continued at Walden University to complete my Master’s in Mental Health Counseling in May 2023.

I am passionate about working with people diagnosed with mental illnesses and disorders, people experiencing grief, suffering from addiction or a substance use disorder, and challenging life events. I believe the best therapeutic results come from a genuine client-therapist working relationship based on empathy and transparency in a non-judgmental, safe environment. My philosophy is that you know you best; my job is to walk beside you on your journey to self-development, healing, and growth.

In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family, gardening, and volunteering at House of Mary. I look forward to celebrating your personal victories with you.
