“Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing we will ever do.” Brené Brown

Welcome! I am glad you are here. I know from experience that it can be intimidating to try something new or make a change. Kudos to you for taking the first step by considering therapy.

In my four years of counseling practice, I have worked with adults and adolescents on a variety of issues including childhood trauma, interpersonal violence and sexual trauma, general anxiety, social anxiety and performance anxiety, depression, giftedness and high sensitivity, grief and loss, challenging family-of-origin dynamics, and building healthy relationships.

I specialize in working with individuals who are experiencing life transitions. These periods of change and growth – including emerging adulthood, career discernment, coming out, moving to a new place, pregnancy, parenthood, and shifting family roles – can be exciting milestones, but can also stir up feelings of uncertainty, fear, sadness and loss. I can help you hold space for these feelings and look into yourself to discover untapped strengths during these times of change.

I work within a relational framework, meaning that I believe the relationship we build together is the most important factor in the success of therapy. It is my greatest priority that you feel safe and supported in our sessions, and we can take time to build a trusting, secure base from which to explore. I also draw from brain science, mindfulness, DBT and EMDR.

I consider it the highest honor to be entrusted with my clients’ stories and to walk alongside them for a portion of the journey to create meaning out of their experiences. I welcome, value and affirm the unique and diverse perspectives of each individual.

On a personal note, I am invigorated by my practices of swimming, cooking for my friends, and appreciating nature on trail walks with my one-year-old puppy, Maslow.

If you would like to reach me by phone to talk about your needs and how we might work together, please call 512/201-4501, ext. 133. I will return your call within 24 business hours. I look forward to hearing from you.
