“If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.” Jack Kornfield

Welcome to Therapy Austin! I’m glad you found us. While I don’t yet know the specific circumstances that led you here, I do know that there’s a part of you that wants to feel better. So, let’s start there.

You might be feeling confused, angry, defeated, or alone. Perhaps you’ve felt this way for a long time, or maybe something has happened recently that turned your life upside-down. Whatever you’re going through, engaging in therapy is an act of courage and hope.

I believe that we are all capable of finding our own way forward, but we don’t have to do it alone. My approach to therapy is relational and person-centered. This means that I offer empathy, authenticity, and acceptance and view the therapeutic relationship as an opportunity to explore new ways of relating to others. In our sessions together, I will provide a supportive space to explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. If you are feeling overwhelmed or uncertain, then I can offer structure and guidance to help you access your inner wisdom and self-knowledge.

In addition to a Master’s of Social Work, my background includes an MFA in Creative Writing, and I am often struck by the ways in which therapeutic work can resemble storytelling. I think that we all have stories that we tell ourselves about who we are and what our lives mean, and that these stories can help us create a sense of order, stability, and purpose. But sometimes, these narratives become harmful when they conflict with reality or keep us stuck in old ways of being. As a therapist, I can help you to identify the stories you’ve been telling yourself that are no longer helpful, so that we may then work together toward growth and new understanding.

My experience includes work in inpatient mental health and school settings, where I have received training in trauma-informed care. I have worked with clients struggling with a wide variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, anger, grief, and trauma. While our sessions together will always be individualized based on your needs and goals, I often incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skill-building into my work with clients.

My self-care involves striking a balance between spending time with my favorite people and taking time by myself to recharge. I love to read, watch movies, and listen to podcasts just as much as I love to meet up with friends, compete with my trivia team, and explore Austin with my family.

If you are interested in working with me, please call 512/201-4501, ext. 219. I look forward to hearing from you!
