Feelings of hopelessness and anxiety can become paralyzing, leaving us feeling overwhelmed and stuck. It’s easy to resort to unhealthy thoughts and behaviors to cope with life’s endless challenges. Are you using drugs, alcohol, shopping or food to avoid your fears and emotions? Are you drowning in the should haves and what if’s? I work with clients pre- teen and up who are looking for help with anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, codependency, stress, relationships, sleep disorders, work/life balance and life transitions. I also specialize in working with military-connected clients, first responders and their family members.

I know therapy is a significant commitment, which is why I specialize in evidence-based, shorter-term treatments to help your child or teen experience relief sooner.
I help children whose challenging behaviors interfere with their everyday life. When your child is struggling with meltdowns, aggression, or defiance, it often affects their ability to thrive in school or in friendships, and negatively impacts family relationships. You may feel like you have to limit plans to socialize or run errands, or even consider changes in childcare or school. I teach parents specialized play therapy skills and discipline strategies proven to reduce disruptive behaviors. I also provide live coaching via telehealth so that you can receive support in "real-life" situations versus a clinic setting.

A clinical child psychologist, I love working with pre- teen , adolescent and college-age girls who are struggling to establish a sense of self.
Pain exists to make us pay attention. Trying desperately not to hurt, we compromise our integrity, our hearts and our sense of self, on some misguided mission to be invulnerable, to please, to care-take, or just to belong...Somewhere along the way, our vision of ourselves loses focus. Therapy can help create a new template for living. Research shows us that the brain can actually re-wire itself in the context of a secure relationship, developing new capacities for self-soothing, obtaining perspective, and being intimate. I believe that all suffering bears embedded gifts, if we look hard enough.

Prior to private practice, I treated both adolescent and adult clients in a variety of settings; hospitals, schools, and community mental health clinics.
Often it is a life crisis that brings people to therapy; whether it is internal or external. Making the connection of trust and support with the therapist is the first step to the work. I believe in the power of therapy to change patterns that interfere with relationships and satisfaction in life. Over time I have developed great confidence in the benefit of exploring family of origin relationships and how they play out in life. Understanding these patterns is often crucial to change and improvement in anxiety and depression.

Being a teenager can be challenging, especially during a pandemic. Being isolated from friends, spending more time at home and going back to school are just a few stressors. I have learned through my own personal experiences, what it looks like to listen to a persons issues, needs and goals. I have experience both in my professional career as well as through my own mental health journey what it means to be a person who actively listens. I understand there are times when insight is needed but there is also value in having someone simply listen.

As we continue through life we are constantly adapting to change. Whether you are a single adult, coupled, or a adolescent life events and growing pains are inevitable. When you find it difficult to manage and regulate your emotions or loved ones that do, this process of adaption can make finding peace, contentment and joy in life challenging. Sometimes with past trauma and/or current stressors and vulnerabilities, this adaption process can get stuck or go off-line.

There are those days when just getting out of bed is difficult. Having someone help manage struggles and figuring life out is important. The twist and turns of life can leave one feeling drained, exhausted, and in a mental fog, or a loss of wanting to or even knowing how to move forward. This is where I come in, helping those who are stuck, lost, hopeless and who cannot figure out what’s going on inside, feeling there is no way out, or even making unhelpful choices in life. Possibly a teenager or young adult scared about life or the future and managing stress. This is why I am here.

I welcome adult and adolescent clients and have immediate openings.
Hardly anybody I know aspires to be that average, center-of-the-bell-curve person. In different ways, we all deviate from the norm, which explains our own uniqueness. My aim as a therapist is to work with individuals, couples, triads, and families in a way that celebrates their uniqueness and "incurable deviance." By meeting you where you are, with who you are, in a way that makes best use of your unique strengths, hopes, dreams, and quirks, we can work together as client(s) and therapist to help you address your current challenges, get lots more of what you want, develop skills, transform, and explore new choices available to you.

Committing to therapy is not easy and sometimes it takes a few tries before finding a therapist that "clicks". This can be true if you're looking for a therapist for yourself, and definitely true if you're trying to find someone to work with your "little one". Whether the hurdle is finding someone to help you overcome moments of anxiety or depression or helping your child/ teen learn appropriate coping skills for some challenging behaviors, I hope we can work together so you/your child can live their best life.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Austin and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
