"It is in the process of embracing our imperfections that we find our truest gifts: courage, compassion, and connection."  Brené Brown

Deciding to enter a therapy relationship takes courage. I love working with individuals who are committed to understanding themselves better. 

What is therapy like with me? It’s a collaboration. As we get to know each other, we can identify those habits, patterns, cycles that are showing up regularly. What would happen to those patterns if we allowed room for kindness and self-compassion? 

No one is ever required to change; my aim is providing you with a clear space for discovering and exploring all parts of yourself. The therapy relationship can be the laboratory for learning to be authentic with yourself and my hope is that you can use that learning to build a more meaningful life.  

I arrived at Therapy Austin after experiences in technology research, software start-ups, a personal chef business, and active volunteering in the community. I am familiar with the challenges of working within large organizations, managing professional relationships, and navigating career changes.  

A neuroscience nerd, I am committed to understanding how our personal biology influences our experiences. Neurobiology is a useful path for increased self-acceptance. In addition to my Master’s degree in counseling from St. Edward’s University, I have a Bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University, and a Master’s degree in business also from St. Edward’s.

Apart from therapy sessions, I am a committed CrossFit athlete and yoga practitioner who loves dogs. I love cooking and baking, and studying neurobiology.

Please let me hear from you and let’s talk about working together. Call me at 512/201-4501, ext. 182.
