Announcement icon I am seeing clients during this COVID-19 pandemic via a video tele-conferencing service that is HIPPA -compliant.
I specialize in working with clients in life transitions and those seeking deeper meaning. Therapeutic goals include gaining self-awareness and emotional intelligence, maintaining healthy boundaries, practicing reciprocity in relationships, reframing life obstacles as opportunities for growth, and assuming personal responsibility-all in the service of becoming more authentic. I function as a kind of "gentle mirror." Since humans are "wired to connect," I especially support those who are seeking insight into why their relationships aren't working well. Finally, I support clients in addressing repressed shame.
My practice is influenced by Attachment Theory; the Humanistic, "person-centered" model of Carl Rogers; Erik Erikson's developmental stages; Family Systems Theory; and Existential therapy, particularly the work of Viktor Frankl. Supporting clients in developing emotional intelligence, and taking personal responsibility, is critical to my work.
I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), for clients suffering from both primary and secondary trauma. I am also an LPC-Supervisor. At Austin Counseling Center, we offer LPC counseling interns a counseling office in which to begin their private practices, under our umbrella.
