My Approach to Helping

We all face certain obstacles that stand in the way of having a healthy, fulfilling relationship. Allow me to help you create a Revolutionary Relationship so you can save the world together, instead of trying to save your relationship all the time! I have a passion for working with couples to reconnect and reestablish their bond, enrich sexual intimacy and find safety with one another again. A changed relationship with the same partner can provide freedom and joy without the wrenching pain of hurting others or starting over. My approach is nurturing and empowered to enhance relationships with yourself & others.

Individuals experiencing couple distress tend to have higher rates of work and health-related problems & have been found to greatly benefit from couple therapy.

Therapy is a "refuge." I won't try to fix you, I will only provide a holding environment for you to reconstruct a sense of yourself that's whole (not fragmented) & peaceful (not tormented) so you can unravel your own mysteries. As a Tantra-Informed Practitioner, I protect innocence & confidence.

More Info About My Practice

I use two primary foundational approaches in my therapeutic work with clients: Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy & Gottman Method Couples Therapy. This combination allows me to customize therapy to the needs of each couple.

I am currently undergoing the formal certification process in Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy and have completed an Externship (level 1) and Core Skills (level 2). I have also completed Level 2 Training in the Gottman Method Couples Therapy.

I am native Austinite and nature-lover who enjoys outdoor activities like hiking & camping, in addition to traveling across the U.S. and world.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I specialize in Relationship Enrichment, Mindful Partnerships, Conscious Dating, Pre-commitment, self-expansion through relationship and Uncoupling (for individuals and couples who want to break up), in addition to working with sex and sexuality.
