I will be accepting new clients to start in Mid March. Let me know if I can assist you in personal goals, changing habits or thought patterns. A counseling relationship can help to process and get support through difficult times. Therapy is for everyone and can have a lot of goals. Some of the common issues I help with are life stressors, relationships, processing trauma, increasing self esteem, building confidence and helping you meet your goals. I can provide a non-biased supportive ear to listen, connect and encourage you. Clients that I work with say that we are able to improve stress reactions and combat negative self talk.

Life is everchanging. My clients are experiencing challenges that require them to change in order to go forward. Some clients are interested in dreams and personal growth over time. Others want some immediate support to help them sort out the difficulties they currently face: whether it be the loss of a relationship, a career, a difficult illness, or some other major change in one's orientation to life. I have a depth and breadth of experience working with people of all stripes and in both law and social work: that is, people who have been stuck in some very difficult places. I value individuality and wholeness--not perfection.

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.

Now 100% ZOOM teletherapy counseling!! I am here to work with you to develop resilience against anxiety, depression---and any other painful or distressing issue. I am hoping for you to have a happy, creative, and productive life in a world full of challenges. Many patients need to verbalize their fears to be able to look at their situation from multiple perspectives. You can face the irrational aspects of worrisome thoughts. We can consider your prior coping mechanisms, to be replaced by more adaptive coping tools. Let's think of your life today and forward, accepting yourself more, and understanding how to deal with others.

Realizing our own needs for acceptance and validation can be hard, especially when we have not been taught to ask for them ourselves. If you feel like you are bursting at the seams with new ideas but don't know where to start or are feeling pressured by new life transitions or impending crises, therapy may be a helpful place to lay your cards on the table and decide the next step.

We offer alternative therapies for those searching for a holistic and eclectic approach to counseling, including creative arts, mindfulness meditation, and logotherapy, the belief that we can find meaning in suffering.

I help people understand themselves. When you understand yourself - your patterns, your perspective - you can change whatever isn't working in your life, and invite in more of what is. If you're struggling - with sadness, constant worry, difficult family or romantic relationships, feeling discontent or just plain stuck - I can help you move forward. I provide a friendly, comfortable space where you can relax and talk frankly. I listen actively, and offer fresh insights and feedback, as well as new skills and strategies for you to try. You will leave with new things to try out and more hopeful for the future.

No problem is too big or too small to work on in counseling. If something is causing you pain or distress, it’s worth addressing. I am here to help you discover new ways to manage your life in a way that is genuine for you. While counseling can be a difficult and emotionally taxing experience, most find hope and strength throughout the process, as well as increased well-being during and after therapy. I am passionate about helping people overcome difficult situations, and helping each individual shine as the best version of her, them or himself.

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.
