Whatever is bringing you to therapy, I’m glad you’re here. You may be looking for something specific, or you may be feeling a general restlessness pointing you toward deeper exploration. Starting therapy can be daunting, so thank you for taking this step. You deserve an open, validating space to do the work that is important to you.
Therapy is not one-size-fits-all, so it is my top priority to start where you are, in your unique present moment. I strive to bring my authentic self into our sessions so that my office is a safe and inclusive space for all people, regardless of the categories they may or may not fit into. If we work together, you may hear me talk about attachment theory, neurobiology, and mindfulness among other theories. We will likely explore the past, and its effect on the present through a trauma-informed lens.
A few areas I’ve worked in previously are anxiety and depression, finding meaning after loss, borderline personality traits, and interpersonal dynamics. I completed my Bachelors in Psychology in 2014 and my Masters in Clinical Social Work in 2020, both from the University of Texas here in Austin. In my free time I recharge in the sun through hiking, swimming, and hanging out on restaurant patios. I also enjoy playing music, painting, and spending time with my partner and our pit mix puppy.
If you would like to talk more about working together, please call me a 512-201-4501 x 301.
