Senior Counselor
Fully Licensed

Our lives do not take place in a vacuum—all our experiences shape us in unique and sometimes unexpected ways. External (social, political, economic, etc.) forces form us in ways that are both obvious and indistinct. Through trusting and honest relationship, we can learn more about ourselves and how we have come to survive our world. My clinical work has shown me that life transitions of all kinds provide us an opportunity to reimagine new ways to live. I believe compassion and respect are helpful tools for self-acceptance and allow us to acknowledge parts of ourselves that have felt missed or ignored. Therapy is a place to practice withholding judgment and extending empathy to ourselves and those around us. I am ultimately concerned with how your life can become more livable and how you are able to express yourself in freer and more authentic ways. 

I believe therapy can be a space to create safety and growth that can have a meaningful impact on your life. My approach to therapy involves the development of a helpful, consistent connection where we collaborate and where you are at the center. I bring a warm, curious attention to what you share in our time together. It is my hope to create a relationship that allows you to discover more of your own life, identifying your own agency and your capacity to make the changes you desire. 

My clinical background has included work with those experiencing life transitions, exploring spiritual and existential issues, relationship and family issues, chronic illness, grief and loss and work with LGBTQ+ adults. After studying music in Nashville, TN, I moved to Boston to be trained in theology and social work at Boston University. I obtained my Master of Divinity (MDiv) and Master of Social Work (MSW) degrees, especially focused in relational psychotherapy and a person-centered approach to care. In my free time, I enjoy quality time with old and new friends, exploring Austin, and listening to recordings of Bob Parlocha’s jazz radio show on my porch. 

I look forward to meeting you and learning more about your life.
