Welcome to Therapy Austin!
I am so glad you are here making strides toward your personal goals. Sometimes the first step is the hardest and I commend your willingness to try something different in order to move forward in your life. I am here to support you in your journey wherever it goes with warmth, openness, generosity and authenticity. All gender identities, expressions, and orientations are welcome as well as those with alternative faith and spiritual practices.
Whether we work together virtually or in person, you can expect a warm and inviting atmosphere where humor, curiosity, and even laughter flourishes. The space I create provides a feeling of comfort and safety for you to explore whatever you would like during our sessions. My style is casual and relational with practices of mindfulness, a focus on individual or family strengths, and a health at every size belief system. I have a think outside the box perspective to life's curveballs as well as a true joy in getting to know people.
We all need support at various times in our lives and help along the way. Maybe you’re in a life transition with a young family or a family in transition to a new dynamic. Managing the feelings that come with lifes’ ups and downs, sandwich generation concerns, and the complexities of unique family constellations are dynamics I am comfortable working with. I am trained in positive parenting strategies, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), as well as Grief and Loss. Substance use recovery, disordered eating/eating disorders, and managing living with chronic medical diagnoses are areas of specialization in my training, background, and experience.
Outside of the therapy room, I enjoy scuba diving in various oceans around the world, being in nature or my garden as well as spending time with my family. Many times I incorporate elements from the natural world into the therapeutic setting.
