Hello there, welcome and congratulations on taking this huge step! It can be difficult and intimidating to admit to ourselves that sometimes, we need help. I would like to tell you that oftentimes being vulnerable is not the enemy. If you’re feeling a little lost, emotionally exerted, or even overwhelmed by daily tasks, you are not alone, what you feel has value and meaning. My hope for you is that therapy offers a space where you can be open, and freely process what it is that might be keeping your happiness at bay.

The stressors in life can at times, be overbearing and when combined with possible past trauma, emotional distress, difficult relationships, or life transitions it can leave your mind clouded and unsure. When we experience painful or overwhelming emotions, at times fear may settle in where hopefulness, joy, or love and belonging should be. I provide a space of non judgement, openness, and encouragement where we can foster growth and human connection to help you obtain your goals. My approach to therapy includes the use of person-centered and attachment theory, using mindfulness techniques frequently throughout the therapeutic process. My belief is that you are the expert of your own life, my role is to help guide you down a path of healing and self-acceptance.

My work as a counselor has allowed me to work primarily with individuals and couples. My experience includes working with depression, anxiety, identity exploration, self-esteem issues, and relationship issues. Although I love Austin as my new home, I’m actually originally from South Texas and I received my master’s degree in mental health counseling from a CACREP accredited program at the University of Texas at San Antonio.

When I’m able to get away I like to spend my time traveling and enjoying all that nature has to offer. Music is my solace and I love attending music events as much as I can. Walks at my local park are my absolute favorite, especially at sunset with a good book in hand.
