I’m so glad you are here. Whether it is your first time seeking therapy or you are returning to it, you are taking a very important step towards your personal growth, well-being, and healing. I would be honored to join you in this journey.
If you’re reading this, I understand that you have been through some suffering. You may be feeling lost, hopeless, hurt, afraid, or overwhelmed. There may be a specific issue you want help with, or you may not even know where to start. You may have tried to manage on your own for a long time, and it’s just not working anymore. I’m here to help.
In our sessions, we will work together to address the issues that are most affecting your life right now. Rather than me telling you what to do, I will collaborate with you in exploring your options. It’s important for me to not only learn about the problems you are coming in with, but also your lived experience of them. We will also look at your ideas about yourself, others, and the world at large, your core beliefs, how these came to be, and how they may be related to your current challenges. You will be able to understand yourself and others more deeply and this will give you valuable information necessary to improve your life and relationships.
You should know that throughout our work together, I will never judge you or think anything negative about you. I want you to feel comfortable and like you can be your true self with me. I believe you have the inner resources needed to succeed and meet the goals you set for yourself. Ultimately, my goal is to create a space for you where you can feel safe, secure and cared for. In my experience as a therapist, I have had success working with individuals who experience anxiety, panic/anxiety attacks, depression, negative thoughts/self-talk, trauma, anger control problems, low self-esteem, and more. Rather than operating from one school of thought, I use a combination of multiple approaches, such as relational psychodynamic theory, humanistic psychology, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. Therapy is not “one size fits all,” and I will tailor my approach to you and your individual needs. I understand the important roles race, gender, privilege, sexuality, culture, socioeconomic class, age, etc. play in our lives. I consider these factors throughout every facet of our work together.
Here is a little about me:
I’ve lived in the Austin area for most of my life and absolutely love it. I have a Masters of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lamar University. When I am not in the therapist’s chair, I like to catch up on my favorite TV shows, listen to podcasts, and spend time with my family and friends (and my kitten, Penny). If it sounds like I might be a good fit for you, please give me a call at (512)201-4501 ext 339. I’m looking forward to meeting you!
