I believe the counseling process needs to be tailored to the needs of each individual and the client-counselor relationship is very important in effectively addressing life situations and emotional pain. My education and experience has prepared me to counsel individuals, couples, and families. I have spent several years gaining expertise providing mindfulness based counseling (Hakomi) to clients interested in this person-centered approach. EMDR and PACT (Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy - Stan Tatkin's work) trained. Certified mediator.

Are you struggling to create meaning or purpose in life? Are you feeling stuck -- unable to make decisions or move forward? Do you tend to feel lonely or misunderstood? Know that you are not alone. These are dilemmas most everyone wrestles with at one time -- or many times throughout life. My passion is to join with clients in the exploration of these issues and the vast spectrum of others that may be connected and entangled within. It can be difficult to untangle these knots, but the work can lead you to emotional freedom, fulfillment, and acceptance.

For many of us, myself included, counseling often becomes a process that refuses to come full circle. We are seeking help, but that help seems to elude us and we struggle finding the right fit or the right method that might provide the direction we need. I was inspired to pursue counseling as a career by my desperate need for help along my life path, and my desire to provide that guidance and compassion to others, in a clear and consistent way. In addition to my work in office at Alive Austin, I am therapy director for Simple Sparrow care farm. Please ask me about scheduling a session at the farm for a non traditional approach.

Most people who come to therapy are trying either to deal with a symptom-depression, anxiety, stress, etc.- or they are struggling with some relationship, or even struggling with oneself- one's own history, or a bad habit. Therapy always begins with your presenting problem. People develop strategies to deal with life, but sometimes what worked before isn't working anymore. A good therapist is always committed 100% to your best interest. Once I have earned your trust, it becomes easier to accept a new idea, a new approach, or a new strategy. Sometimes all it takes is a new perspective.

My ideal client is human; inherently flawed and curious. This human is seeking collaboration, a non-judgmental space in which to grow, thrive, and learn through relational education between themselves and ultimately with others. The path chosen is ultimately one of healing, reconciliation, acceptance, growth, and forgiveness. The decision made to show up in therapy is a huge first step to move from surviving and stagnation to thriving and introspection. It is my honor whenever I have the opportunity to take this journey with you.

For thirty years I've watched people in therapy surprise themselves with how they can make things better. Life challenges you with situations and feelings that seem insurmountable. Your usual ways of responding aren't working any longer. Sometimes you know exactly what would make you happier, but, for some reason, you don't do it. Together we will determine what needs to happen in order you to live more fully. I provide a safe space in which to explore this with warmth and humor.

One of my philosophies of life is that although we cannot always control our experiences and circumstances, we can choose our responses to them and dive into how they affect and influence us as humans. We can then learn to understand how life mirrors to us the way we relate to ourselves. I believe life is change; growth optional. We ultimately have the capacity to grow if we allow ourselves to, as acknowledging change is allowing it to happen while it unfolds.

Clients present with many concerns, including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, trauma, and relationship issues to name a few. Everyone experiences emotional ups and downs, successes and failures. However, when one is stuck in the "downs" and the "failures" we may feel overwhelmed, anxious & depressed. Often one turns to unhealthy coping such as alcohol and drugs, eating, compulsive behaviors - shopping and exercising, isolation or avoidance. Untangling the unique threads of your life; and understanding how they affect you can be the beginning to feeling more in charge and living according to your values and desires.
