“As long as you are breathing, there is more right with you than there is wrong, no matter how ill or how hopeless you may feel.” -Jon Kabat-Zinn


Whether you’ve been here before, or this is your first time reaching out for support, I appreciate your willingness to take these first small steps. Meeting someone new and allowing yourself to be known in this way can be intimidating, and that’s okay. 

My goal is to foster a space where you’ll feel able and willing to speak openly about what’s going on in your world. A space where you’ll, perhaps, be willing to consider new perspectives and try new things. A space where we might explore what works and what doesn’t for you, all the while celebrating what matters to you and grappling with the challenges which inevitably reveal themselves on the journey. The quality of the connection between a person and their counselor is the key factor in achieving their counseling goals, and this is my first priority when working with you. 

I have provided group and individual support in intensive outpatient substance use settings and I’ve also provided case management and counseling to folks who were unhoused, living with HIV, and grappling with a complex of mental health, chronic health, and substance use needs. I believe we all are most satisfied when living a life in line with what matters to us. This belief is a guiding principle for me in the work we’ll do together. 

Before landing at Therapy Austin, I completed my undergraduate degree at Texas Tech University and gained certification in emergency medicine (EMT-Basic) and structural firefighting. I moved to Central Texas to find work as a firefighter and found myself drawn into the world of environmental compliance where I ultimately spent about a decade working with engineering firms, homebuilders, and the Texas Army National Guard. My personal journey of exploration and healing led me to obtaining my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the Episcopal Seminary of the Southwest. Like many, my road hasn’t always been a straight line, and I’m now thankful for what it asked of me and the experiences I’ve had along the way. 

Outside of the office, I like to work with my hands even though I am a bit of slow starter. I often fall asleep working out how to fix or build things and dream of having a backyard shop one day. I aspire to read more and have a laundry list of books waiting for me. As a self-identified homebody, I appreciate my partner’s desire to “get out and go,” while I attempt to maintain a healthy balance of “doing” and “being.” 

If any of what I’ve shared is ringing a bell for you, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me by filling out our appointment request form. Wherever you find yourself on the road today, I hope you find what you need to guide you toward health and fulfillment, keep going.
