"Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced." - Søren Kierkegaard


There is no shortage of problems in life. When confronted with unfamiliar challenges, it's natural to feel overwhelmed and uncertain about how to move forward. Having found this page means you have already taken the first step of acknowledging there is some issue you are seeking support to address. I am appreciative that you are exploring the possibility of us working together. 

I provide individual psychotherapy for adults focusing on issues including life transitions, anxiety, emerging adulthood, identity development, interpersonal difficulties, career changes/uncertainty, depression, and developmental trauma. My specialization is in issues related to neurodiversity (ADD/Autism). 

I believe the resources for learning and healing are found within each person. Therapy is a process built upon the client-therapist relationship, and I work to foster the conditions that allow for growth and change to emerge within the individual and is experienced within the context of the therapeutic relationship. This manifests as a style that is person-centered, process-focused, and collaborative. 

I strive to personalize the tools utilized in therapy to fit the specific needs of the client. In this way, I take an integrative approach, incorporating techniques from a range of therapeutic traditions. 

My general therapeutic approach is rooted in depth psychology, existentialism, and biopsychosocial models, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT). 

I earned my Master of Arts in Professional Counseling from Texas State University, with a concentration in clinical mental health, and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Texas A&M University, with a minor in neuroscience. Prior to working as a psychotherapist, I gained experience working as a clinical director, social coach, writing consultant, and outdoor camp specialist. 

If you feel we are a good fit for working together, I encourage you to contact me at 512/201-4501, ext. 268, or by filling out the request form on our website. I look forward to hearing from you.
