How would you describe your approach to therapy?

I believe that a strong therapeutic relationship is the heart of the work we can do together. For this reason, I take a relational, person-centered approach to therapy. I strive to create a space free from judgment where authenticity, empathy, and humor are key components of the healing process. I know that everyone has a unique story, so I take a flexible approach when utilizing therapeutic techniques. This allows me to get to know my clients personally and tailor my approach to their specific needs and goals. 


What led you to become a counselor?

My path toward a career in therapy was inspired by my own mental health journey and a desire to extend that same care to others in my community. My journey started in my adolescent years when my parents advocated for me to give therapy a try. This support helped shape the person I am today and led me toward a decade of work as an educator and school counselor. As a therapist in a private setting, I look forward to working with individuals and families to provide more in depth, holistic support. 


What trainings have you completed and how do they relate to your ideal client?

As a lifelong learner, I am consistently seeking out new skills and knowledge that can benefit those I partner with in the therapeutic process. I have completed training in mindfulness, trauma informed care, and positive discipline parenting strategies. My time as a school counselor has provided experience and training working with neurodivergent students and their families, particularly helping individuals with anxiety, autism, ADHD, learning disabilities, and depression. Additionally, I have experience supporting youth and families through challenging life transitions.


Is there anything else you would like your clients to know?

I hold so much respect for anyone seeking therapeutic support for themselves or a loved one. Taking that first step is not always easy, but I truly believe the work and vulnerability that individuals put into therapy is reflected in their personal and relational growth. 

Additionally, I believe that we bring our life experiences into our work. Having grown up in a military family, I am passionate about helping military spouses and dependents navigate the unique stressors of military life. I am also passionate about working with educators, as a former educator myself. 


What do you love to do in your free time?

I love spending time with my husband and our three very spoiled cats. Traveling is my favorite and I never pass up the opportunity to explore new places and cultures.  When I’m home in Austin, I love to spend time on the water, sailing and kayaking, listen to live music, garden, watch movies, and practice yoga.
