Supervised by Kalila Homann, LPC-S

The choice to begin therapy takes courage. It’s also the first step in a journey towards healing and growth. I’m so glad you’ve found your way here. 

I view therapy as a collaborative process. I prioritize co-creating a restorative space that offers a sense of warmth, openness, and curiosity towards all that emerges. When we engage with our full selves, awareness deepens. I believe the possibility of change rests in this newfound insight, and is supported when we feel safe enough to form meaningful relationships.

My approach is trauma-informed. I heartfully acknowledge our body, brain, and mind as an integrated whole within a social and cultural context. Grounded in Somatic Psychology and Interpersonal Neurobiology, I work to holistically attend to embodied and relational processes that support mindful awareness and direct engagement with the wisdom of the body. 

I have a BA in Psychology and MA in Professional Counseling from Texas State University. In addition to a strong foundation in clinical mental health, I have specialized somatic training in dance/movement therapy. When words are not enough, this specialty supports the use of movement, creativity, non-verbal, and body-based approaches in therapy.   

Weaving together talk therapy, expressive arts, and somatic methods, I invite new possibilities to tell your story and express your feelings. Your body is a resource you always have access to. I’m skilled at gently supporting individuals to explore how the body and movement can provide direct access to change and well-being. Together we will discover internal resources supporting healing, growth, and transformation. 

My clinical experience includes working with children, adolescents, and adults that have experienced trauma. I am sensitive to how early painful experiences can follow us into adulthood and I seek to support holistic and long-term healing. I’ve witnessed how internal struggles can disrupt interpersonal relationships and vice versa. Whether we are navigating the depths of your inner world or the complexity of relationships, I’ll be by your side to sift through the mud together as well as to celebrate your wins along the way. 

Outside of the therapy space you can find me dancing, trying new coffee shops with my partner, enjoying the rain, loving nature and wildlife, and snuggling my two sweet kitties.   

If my approach has resonated with you or you felt a spark of curiosity, I encourage you to take that next step and reach out. I’d be honored to ebb and flow with you on this next part of your journey.
