In times of stress, we tend to forget that healing comes from the inside out! Major changes such as marital conflict, divorce, dementia in a loved one, anxiety, or depression may give more questions than answers. Depth psychology provides deeper understanding of your life. Often solutions are crying out from your own heart if only someone would listen. I will listen and together we will find strategies, resources, and solutions so that you have the life and relationships you want. I offer years of experience working with children and adolescents, families, and crisis intervention. Call for free consultation.

Additionally, I have a special interest in working with families facing an Alzheimer's/ dementia diagnosis, as well as issues of stage fright/peak performance or test anxiety with creatives, performers, and students.
*NOTE: Currently full, but spots do open up over time. Feel free to inquire.* Although my approach to counseling draws from a variety of models and approaches (including EMDR and interpersonal neurobiology, among others), all are rooted in the fundamental principles of non-judgmental acceptance, authenticity, and experience. Beyond the exploration of old patterns of beliefs and behaviors, my focus is on helping clients find solutions. My ultimate goal as a therapist is to help my clients develop knowledge and tools that will facilitate sustained growth long after therapy has ended.

I have worked with adolescents, adults, and the elderly .
How can therapy help me with my problems? That is a question I am sure a lot of people ask themselves when considering therapy. One of my philosophies in life is that although we cannot always control our experiences and circumstances, we can choose our responses to them and delve into how they affect and influence us as humans. Presence is essential. I understand that I cannot change any individual other than myself, but I can act as a vessel or catalyst by truly understanding myself to help another person. My goal is to create an environment where you become the best you as possible by looking into all aspects of your life.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Are you feeling down or overwhelmed? Do you feel alone in a room full of people? Do you need help with identifying appropriate life goals; developing effective coping skills; improving stress; alleviating depressive symptoms or embracing life. People enter counseling for many reasons, from anxiety, stress, mental health fitness, depression, trauma and grief. Still others are curious to discover more about themselves and keen to enrich their relationships and inner lives. Whatever your circumstances, counseling can be the first step in an empowering journey of self-awareness and change.

Times are tough, people aren’t. The world is changing and pressures seem to be coming from all sides, creating a sense of chaos. This stress and frustration, sometimes added to preexisting feelings of anxiety, fear, anger and depression has taken a toll on all of us. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help you discover nonproductive patterns and learn how to navigate the road toward acceptance, love, awareness, forgiveness, and recovery. I work with you to discover a better path forward, believing that this is a lifelong journey that enables us to appreciate the mountaintop experiences, and to cope with the valleys.

"People come for therapy not to change their past but their future." a quote by Milton Erickson that inspires us to view therapy as a way to manage change -- and there are so many changes these days! Managing change with creativity and insight creates new opportunities and revitalizes relationships. When experiencing change do you struggle with lack of motivation, depressive moods, self-defeating self talk, or poor self-confidence? Counseling helps you gain insight into your underlying feelings and motivations, envision new possibilities for yourself or your relationship, and clarify conflicting emotions.

How can I find a therapist in Austin?

Search for nearby therapists or counselors by inputting your city, town, or suburb; or zip code; or a provider’s name into the search bar. From there, you can filter providers by the issues they treat, cost, insurance, gender, and other factors to find providers who are well-suited to your needs. To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
