Accepting new clients. You honestly believe if you tried a little harder the problem would go away. While you anxiously replay the past and rehearse what to do differently next time, you’re slowing losing yourself. Sometimes the only relief to the obsessive thoughts are moments of depression and being distracted. You wonder if there is another way, and yes, there is a better way. Sometimes we rely on familiar thoughts and behaviors that we don't notice aren't working in this situation.

Working and taking care of others in these time can be challenging to navigate. I believe it's in these trying times when it's most important to set time aside to care for yourself. I work collaboratively with a warm, empathetic, down-to-earth style that helps you feel comfortable, where dialogue and the process of reflection and exploration allow insight and growth to develop.

Beginning therapy can be a challenging first step to making desired changes in life. My goal is to help you learn lifelong coping skills that are necessary for making these desired changes. Exploring thoughts and feelings, practicing self-reflection, gaining greater self-acceptance, and learning ways to improve communication are some techniques I incorporate into therapy. I utilize a combination of collaborative and integrative therapy to aid you on your journey of self-healing, changed behaviors, and personal growth. I work hard to make sure that the client feels safe and supported during this journey.

My professional training as a therapist was based in systems theory (i.e. change affects everything) and informed me of many other modalities. My work in the public mental health system has broadened my skill set to be comfortable working with severe and persistent mental health disorders as well. Through the years, I have collected several interventions and strategies to apply to the counseling work that I now offer to families, adults and couples.

You’ve probably heard a lot of talk about what therapy is or isn’t. I think therapy is hard to define because it takes on a different meaning and trajectory for each person. Therapy is not linear nor is it easy, but it is profound. Therapy is not something I do to you; it is something I do with you. Together, we team up to gain insight and growth

I am passionate about helping individuals and couples thrive in reaching their goals by building on their strengths and identifying new and creative ways to adjust to difficult situations and circumstances. "People come for therapy not to change their past but their future." a quote by Milton Erickson inspires us to view therapy as a way to manage change.

**We are not accepting new patients at this time, and our wait list is full.** Insomnia. “Sleep performance” may be a better term for it. Dreading each coming night, fearing that it will be a fresh experience of frustration and worry. Dreading the coming day, knowing that it will be one in which you are not at your best. I treat sleep and only sleep.

Telehealth Only! I have one rule in session: We have to laugh at least once. Life is hard, work can be stressful, parenting can be chaotic, relationships can be confusing, and sometimes we are just not okay! Therapy can be a place where you learn more about yourself, your family of origin and the world around you. Even though life is hard we can still have peace. With a mindfulness approach, we can help you find your safe place. We can change how you relate to the world and your suffering in a manner that benefits you. In a life that can sometimes be a rollercoaster, we will work together to handle the ups and downs.

As complex and dynamic beings I believe that humans are so much more than just a label or diagnosis. My therapeutic style is respectful, collaborative, and filled with unconditional positive regard for my clients in an environment that is both honest and inclusive. I am passionate about working with anxious and depressed adults who are experiencing symptoms related to past trauma. More specifically, developmental traumas related to family of origin issues resulting in early childhood attachment difficulties that are likely due to a difficult/unloving parent or dysfunctional home environment.

You are here because something is off. The armor that you normally wear might need to be repaired, or the protective shield that you use daily isn’t as effective as it used to be. You are having trouble you didn’t used to have or maybe you are ready to face something that has been there a while. You might be confused about big life stuff or are experiencing grief that you aren’t sure how to process. You might have moments of your life that seem stuck on repeat in your mind and you can’t find the STOP button on the remote. You absolutely aren't alone in these struggles and you have found an ally that can help face them all.

Whether you seek therapy to help restore balance in life or you are simply trying to invest in your mental health, congratulations on taking that step! Sometimes, unexpected events profoundly impact us, and we are left wondering how to pick up the pieces. I believe that individuals become the person they are today through life experiences, thus shaping their worldview and how they think, feel, and behave. Connecting with my clients is of the utmost importance to me, and I aim to hold a safe and comfortable place where my clients feel empowered to be their most genuine selves.

I would describe my practice as helping people work through life issues in ways that promote relational, emotional and spiritual growth. My clinical areas of interest include spirituality, depression, anxiety, and relationship problems. I also specialize in working with men's issues. I apply a Christian/faith-based approach to counseling and am trained in both theology and professional counseling. I am an ordained minister and pastoral counselor. I don't impose my beliefs on clients, and respect all faith/spiritual traditions as valuable resources for healing. Areas of expertise include depression, anxiety, childhood abuse, personality disorders, faith crisis, marriage, family, adolescent, and relationship issues.

Ditch survival mode, reclaim your life. My clients struggle as you do. Despite being smart, determined, and kind, life is hard. When they first come in, they experience thoughts and emotions as too intense. They have trouble living in the moment and feel as though anxiety and worry have taken over their lives. While they're great at making people feel good, they struggle to do the same for themselves. Before therapy, my clients felt guilt and shame for struggling. Other people seem to have it all together, why can’t they? The pressure they put on themselves was pervasive. They felt exhausted trying to manage everything on their own.

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.
