"Depression, anxiety, relationship issues, loss and grief, mid-life crisis, disappointment and stagnation are only a few of the reasons an individual seeks counseling. My therapeutic approach in working with an individual is to explore the meaning of life-altering events and to bring understanding and enduring ways to cope. I focus on strengths in the individual and work in a warm, non-judgmental way that feels safe. My role is to provide empathic listening and support while acting as a guide in removing the barriers and patterns that have developed over a lifetime."

"Attachment has become a bit of a buzzword lately, but what does it really mean? Attachment focused therapy helps you make connections between early experiences and feelings and the anxiety, low mood or relationship difficulties you may be experiencing today. With an eye toward the past but our feet firmly in the present, I help people make sense of what they've tried sort it out on your own. You may have asked, what else can I do for myself, for my relationship? Reaching out for help can be scary, but it can be a major step toward feeling more like you want to feel. "

"Maybe you're newly single, or new to Austin, and you despair because you're lonely, you feel lost, and you wonder if things will ever get better. Perhaps you have a history of complicated relationships, and you've noticed you repeat the same cycle but can't stop. Or could it be you say yes... to everything and everyone, and now you're burned out and resentful. Getting up in the morning is a struggle. You're on the verge of crying. You're lashing out. Whatever is going on, your situation is leaving you anxious, discouraged, and even hopeless at times. Sometimes life circumstances feel overwhelming, confusing, or just plain hard. "
