Supervised by Janet Erm, LCSW
Hello! Welcome to Therapy Austin. My focus as a counselor is to offer a space for you to identify your goals and embark on a journey towards meeting them. This is a process that is different for each individual. Each of us is unique and we approach life’s issues through our own particular perspectives, created by our life experiences. Providing you with a space to be heard and validated is my goal. My approach could be described as person-centered, holistic, and collaborative. In the therapeutic process, I use a variety of interventions as they best match your need. In particular, I enjoy using Experiential modalities, Cognitive Behavioral techniques, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness.
As a mental health professional, I am comfortable working with a diversity of issues as I have worked within a range of settings including hospitals, schools, and private agencies. I have worked with individuals who are dealing with trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, life transitions, and a variety of other challenges. I want to help clients identify their strengths and manage life’s stressors.
A little more about me, I grew up in Austin and attended Austin schools, and have a deep appreciation for Austin’s diverse cultural and natural environment. Prior to working as a therapist, I enjoyed five years of employment as a teacher for Kinder, Pre-K and First grade children. I am married to a wonderful man who is an entrepreneur making his mark in Austin’s food world. Our children are three mutts rescued from Austin Pets Alive, and we adore them! If you think we’d be a good match, please call me at 512/201-4501, ext. 174, or complete an online request form here. I look forward to connecting soon.
