Are you struggling with transition, grieving a loss, or feeling overwhelmed with changes occurring in your life? Or are you feeling stuck and unsure how to go about making a change? Are you experiencing conflict or feeling disconnected from others and yourself?
I can help you define yourself and your relationships so you can better navigate life's challenges, free yourself from problematic patterns, and make genuine connections.
I offer confidential, goal-oriented therapy. Therapy is a partnership, and I hope we can build an atmosphere of trust, openness, honesty, and safety. I encourage you to ask questions, voice any concerns about the therapy process, and take each session as a step.
Coming to therapy is always a choice, and I want you to make that choice with as much knowledge as possible so you can decide for yourself if we are a good match. I hope you will learn about me on this site, but also in our first session and every session thereafter. I have been told that the biggest challenge in getting help is making that first call. This is your therapy, and I want it to help you define and reach your goals.
I work with clients of all ages, including individuals, couples, and families, who have experienced a range of issues, including trauma, grief, chronic illness, and family conflict. I am a graduate of St. Edwards University with a Masters of arts in Counseling, and I work as a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist Associate at the Austin Family Institute. I am supervised by Dr. Michael Bishop.

More Info About My Practice
SCHEDULING: During our phone consultation or first session we can discuss what length of appointment best serves your needs. I generally schedule appointments 50 minutes, 1.5 hours, or 2 hours.
INSURANCE: I accept all major insurance networks as an out-of-network provider. This means I collect payment at the time of service and can provide you a monthly superbill to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Please check with your insurance provider to learn about your out-of-network mental health coverage.
My Role as a Therapist
The work I do with clients is:
STRENGTH-BASED: Everyone has their own unique strengths. I help you find yours, so you can draw upon hidden resources to address your challenges.
SOLUTION-FOCUSED: I help my clients make positive changes by helping them identify clear goals, then achieve those goals.
GOAL-DIRECTED: Change requires a clear roadmap. I help my clients make roadmaps that empower them to change.
TRAUMA-INFORMED: Many of my clients have been repeatedly traumatized, both in childhood and as adults. I help you navigate your emotional wounds without judgment, offering you plenty of compassion. I aim to understand my clients' stories to help them heal.
CULTURALLY COMPETENT: I can relate effectively to clients from a variety of backgrounds. I effectively respond to the needs of minority populations, and am keenly aware of the ways in which culture affects and interacts with psychological health.
COLLABORATIVE: I consider the client/family to be the owner of their care plan. I acknowledge that clients and family members are the true experts about their lives and that they will teach me what they need if I listen well, with respect and without judgment. I invite clients to remain active participants in all aspects of their care.
