Hey there, and welcome to Therapy Austin!
Having made it this far, you're probably curious what life might be like if some difficult parts of your day-to-day experience were to change. You might not quite know what those parts are yet, or the ways they could be different. Or maybe you know full well what you want to see change, and you've been trying everything you can think of to make it happen. No matter who you are and where you're coming from, there is a path forward that's uniquely your own, and I would be overjoyed to be your sidekick in finding it.
I believe it's in our nature as humans to find ourselves stuck in places -- inside ourselves and with the people around us -- that are painful, or maybe just feel out of whack somehow. When we are allowed to feel truly safe and to be with ourselves for long enough, we get unstuck.
Maybe managing your mood is a bigger part of your life than you're okay with. Maybe you've lost someone or your life has been turned upside down. Maybe you're wrestling with compulsions or addictions that are keeping you from living how you want to live.
Or maybe the pressures and unfairness of the world are really weighing you. Maybe you're trying to better understand your gender or sexuality, or who you want to be, or the meaning of life. Maybe you feel like a character in a crummy story that's being read over and over again.
Whatever it is that brings you here, it is welcome.
In our conversations, you'll find someone who accepts you, who really cares about your world and what you have to say, who doesn't assume they know something that you don't. And just like there's no one-size-fits-all path through life, I don't believe in a one-size-fits-all path in therapy. The paths we take are the ones that fit with you, and we find that out together.
I earned my Bachelors in Psychology in 2015 and Masters in Social Work in 2021 from the University of Texas here in Austin. I've worked with adults of all ages, many just getting started in life, many wrapping up their time here, and lots in between. I have experience with folks of various races and ethnicities, personal and cultural backgrounds, income levels, and abilities. I've been a part of several recovery fellowships, and I'm a part of the LGBTQIA+ community. I'm a lifelong musician, born and raised in Texas, and I honestly think my favorite hobby is just having real conversations with people.
