About Me


Welcome to Therapy Austin! I can imagine that if you have clicked this far, there is a part of you hurting, questioning, and looking for relief. It takes courage to reach out for help. You do not have to do this alone.

While much of the external world sends us messages that we don’t belong, we’re broken, or we deserve the painful things that happen to us, I believe the therapeutic process can help us heal from these unhelpful beliefs and the painful traumas we have experienced. With my clients, we discover thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that no longer serve you. Working closely, we process painful feelings and experiences in a way that builds resiliency, insight, and self-agency. I strive to help my clients cultivate life-long skills that restore balance, cultivate mindfulness, and create new meaning in their lives.

I provide counseling to individuals and couples. My experience includes depression, anxiety, grief and loss, life transitions, body image, self-esteem, relationship difficulties, sexual assault and trauma. 

When not at Therapy Austin, my self-care includes swimming, cycling, running, hot yoga, meditation, journaling, kayaking, quality time with friends, and napping. I enjoy the activities and festivals Austin has to offer and am passionate about building intimate connections and a sense of community.

If you would like to reach me by phone to talk about your needs and how we might work together, please call 512/201-4501, ext. 152. I look forward to walking this journey with you.

Whether going through a difficult period and looking for ways to return to each other or seeking premarital counseling, I believe there is nothing more vulnerable or more rewarding than our most intimate and primary relationships. From an Attachment and Emotion-Focused perspective, I work with couples to identify the attachment strategy for each partner. In this way, couples learn how to turn toward each other to strengthen the relationship, find emotional soothing, and provide a safe and secure attachment for the overall well-being of the relationship. I utilize the Gottman Method to help the couple recognize communication pitfalls and discover new ways of communicating in order to strengthen the couple’s friendship, intimacy, and bond.
