About

The goal is for my clients to walk away with the same curiosity and unconditional positive regard for themselves that I cultivate with them in our sessions. Through the gentle untying of the knots of trauma along with reinforcement of strengths and resources, the internal compass can once again be recalibrated toward joy, with intention and self-compassion. Sessions with me involve curiosity, education, and concrete practices that will help shift your perspective on your internal and external experiences, and give you the knowledge necessary to get you back in the driver's seat of your life.
I hold the National Certified Counselor accreditation and am EMDR-trained under Rick Levinson, LCSW. I completed my Master of Arts in Counseling at Saint Edwards University and my pre-graduation internship at the YWCA Greater Austin, providing mental health services to the community dealing with crisis and trauma.
Therapy is collaborative and while I bring training and credentials into the room, the client is ultimately the expert on their lives and their healing. I am an LGBTQ+ ally, conceptualize all bodies through the HAES model, and am always learning culturally and emotionally from the experience of my clients.
