Senior Counselor

“The willingness to show up changes us. It makes us a little braver each time.” Brené Brown

Welcome! I’m glad you’ve found your way here. It takes courage to slow down and examine our lives. The step you’re taking toward counseling is a brave one.

I consider it an honor to hear your story and work with you toward change. Whether you’re feeling depressed, battling anxiety, or dealing with past wounds, I strive to listen empathically and provide a judgment-free space to explore the things keeping you from living the life you desire. Are there things you suspect are holding you back or keeping you stuck in the same patterns in your family, job, or relationships? Do you find yourself feeling confused or unsure of the next step to take? Are there worries you can’t get out of your head no matter how hard you try? When working together, my hope is that you’ll find a safe place to land and exhale.

Everything in counseling starts with the relationship and flows from there. It’s important to spend time building trust and go at your pace for sharing. I view things from a narrative perspective--how we tell our stories matters. It’s important to me to tailor therapy to each person, so I use techniques from a variety of methods to address what’s going on. At times, we may use CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) to hone in on the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. At other times, we may use mindfulness to slow down, relax, and focus on the present. At others, we may use art materials to express something that’s hard to find words for. In all instances, the most important part is feeling safe and connected.

Although I work with all adults, I specialize in working with women, young adults, people in life transitions, those experiencing depression and anxiety, and people who just feel “stuck.” I also have training in Imago couples therapy and enjoy working with couples to build healthier communication. Whether there’s a specific issue bringing you to therapy, or you’re simply wanting to grow further into your true self, we’ll work together to help you find new ways to manage life’s challenges.

A little about me—I studied International Studies at American University in Washington, DC, planning to work in government or in non-profits overseas. Later, while working at an anti-trafficking organization, I realized that I enjoyed connecting one-on-one with others about individual concerns more than shaping policy. Most importantly, I was exposed to the work of social workers assisting survivors of violence to rebuild their lives. From these experiences, and lots of reflection, I decided to get my Master of Social Work degree and graduated in 2014.

When not counseling, you can find me whipping up something in the kitchen (baking is my love language), enjoying Austin by bike, reading memoirs, and spending time with my husband and friends. After living almost 15 years in DC, I’m excited to get to know this new city.

If you’d like to talk about working together, please leave me a message at 512/201-4501, ext. 213. I look forward to connecting with you.
