My Approach to Helping

I will work with you to help you achieve your goal of personal wellness. I will help you determine your values and priorities as well as identify the obstacles that prevent you from living according to those values. I will focus on finding balance in your life between work, relationships, recreation, and health to create fulfillment. I will help you establish healthy relationships and effective communication. The techniques I use in session will help you get your needs met while preserving positive relationships through healthy connections and communication.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a Master of Science in Social Work in 2008. I have experience as a caseworker, therapeutic houseparent, mental health rehabilitation professional, group therapist, clinical manager, and therapist in private practice.

I specialize in work with older adolescents and adults with a focus on anxiety, depression, and trauma. I emphasize self- compassion and practical coping techniques. I also enjoy working with couples using emotionally focused therapy. My overall focus is on psychological wellness through both purposeful living and healthy relationships.
