Welcome to therapy! Beginning therapy can feel intimidating - congratulations on taking this step! You are starting a journey of self-exploration and healing toward the change you want to see in your life. I'm excited to support your journey! 

Are you feeling stuck, depressed, or that your life doesn't align with your values? You may know exactly what's holding you back, or you may be wrestling with painful feelings and are unsure why. Perhaps you've experienced a loss or are anticipating a significant loss and need support navigating grief and this new reality that you didn't want. My mission as your therapist is to be your partner in identifying and addressing your concerns. 

My role is to support you in overcoming challenges, past trauma, and uncomfortable emotions and moving toward the life you want. My passion is creating a safe, non-judgmental space where you feel heard and validated and in which you are empowered to explore opportunities for acceptance and growth. You will find me to be warm, calm, and genuine. I approach our work from a psychodynamic and attachment perspective and also draw from modalities such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative Therapy, and  Motivational Interviewing (MI). I am here to support you with grief and loss, caregiving struggles, depression, anxiety, disordered eating, illness and loss of functioning, life transitions, effects of oppression, suicidal ideation, family of origin issues, and relationship challenges. 

A bit about me… I grew up on the U.S. Gulf Coast (you'll hear this in my accent!) and had a previous career teaching computing at the college level (made possible by my graduate degrees in math and computer science). My passion for connecting with and supporting people, an essential part of my teaching career, led me back to school to pursue a path in counseling, receiving a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin. Before joining Therapy Austin, I worked as an inpatient therapist as well as a hospice social worker, where I had the privilege of supporting patients with a terminal diagnosis and their families. On a more personal note, I am a married mother of two amazing young adults. Some of my favorite things are cuddly dogs, mystery novels, Austin's walking trails, and time with my family and friends. 

Please contact me if you would like to schedule a 15-minute consultation to determine whether we're a good fit.
