As a therapist with 25 years of experience and extensive training, I understand the complexities of suffering and the healing process.

Because this relationship is paramount to your therapy experience, I offer a free initial consultation so that we can meet. I believe that human beings have an amazing ability to gain insight and create change in their lives and am dedicated to this process for clients, myself and all beings.

I can help you if you are struggling with a mood disorder, grief and loss, parenting, job/career, chronic pain and other health concerns, life transitions, or low self-esteem. I want to help you see yourself in a new light. You already have the answers within yourself; I want to help you find them. You will gain awareness of self-limiting behaviors and beliefs and get more control of your thoughts and feelings so that you only keep the ones that are helpful for you.

You have worked hard your entire life to do everything right. In a lot of ways, you have succeeded. However, sometimes you can't stand yourself for having "issues." You worry that if others notice, they will see you as weak. So many successful, wonderful people have anxiety, fears, negative thoughts, self-doubt, depression, and feel like they are never enough. I want you to know that you do not have to feel like this forever.

I am currently offering a sliding scale, as we all deal with these extraordinary times. Living a human life can be hard. Each of us is likely to encounter problems or dilemmas that leave us feeling depressed, anxious or overwhelmed. We may have been hurt a while ago but still unable to get past it. We may seek relief yet not find resolution. Often we are caught between wanting to get through something, yet enacting ineffective behaviors meant to keep us safe. This is when it can be helpful to have someone help us face what life is asking from us.

I help busy professional guys who are feeling stressed out by the many demands of their work and personal lives. By teaching you to stop holding it all in until you either shut down in depression or blow up in anger, I will help you make more sense of all the pressures and gain more mastery over your mind and your mood. By doing this, you will get a clearer sense of what you really want and the actions to take to get it in all important areas of life. For most men, asking for help isn’t our first step. First, we try to do it ourselves. We find our own “solutions.” Work harder. Drink. Zone out. Yell. Shut down.

Sometimes our lives take an unexpected turn-a loved one dies, we lose our job, our marriage ends, our parents' health declines-and suddenly we aren't sure where we're going, or what to do next. You don't have to face these things alone. In my counseling career, I have helped many people get through the hard things that come with difficult life events: sadness, anger, guilt, family conflict, uncontrollable worry, or just feeling stuck.

My strengths work well with clients who were the truth-tellers in their families. Like the boy in “The Emperor Has No Clothes,” you probably experienced a lot of blowback for pointing out the obvious and uncomfortable. Maybe you came to doubt your own experience and wisdom. Over time you may have lost touch with those gifts, resulting in understandable confusion and coping skills that just aren't working anymore (symptoms). You came in this world authentically yourself, let's go find them! I offer a free 15 minute consultation so you can feel comfortable before making your first appointment.

You’re here because you need help. Depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and relationship dysfunction can stifle and hide the person you really are. You feel inhibited, pressured, and isolated, but throughout it all you know there is still something amazing within you. What stops you from being yourself both alone and around others? What stops you from knowing how to take care of yourself? This is what I can explore with you. I want to help you shed what is holding you back and illuminate pain that may be keeping you comfortably stagnant. I want the world to meet who you are.

Changing anything in life can feel like a struggle and seeking help is an important part of the process. During my time as counselor, I have had the privilege to collaborate with adolescents, couples and families as they courageously embark on the pathway to change. I value working with my clients to gain awareness of the patterns in life and finding ways of adjusting them to meet current needs. Whether you are feeling stuck or completely lost, counseling can be a great tool for change. I look forward to working with you.

I am a relationally-focused clinician dedicated to helping others reach their full potential. I offer a safe space for anyone to share whatever they need and be whatever they need to be. I am relationally-focused because I believe we can experience greater awareness and understanding of ourselves, others and our struggles from exploring how we experience the past and present relationships in our lives. These struggles can manifest in many different forms which can include anxiety, depression, addiction, and unresolved trauma.

I specialize in open, nonmonogamous relationships such as polyamory and swinging, alternative lifestyles such as kink / BDSM, LGBT+, and secular or alternative faiths such as paganism. Trying to live more freely and authentically can be hard. Some struggle feeling something is wrong with them. Some people have just been polybombed, the love of their life seeming to say they’re not enough. Others, having taken the leap can’t seem to stop fighting. Feeling isolated, scared, tired, and like they're going to lose everything.

What type of Austin mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Austin?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
