Are you caught between worlds? My online practice caters to cross-culturals. As a first generation Austinite and global citizen, I see you. Do you need space to unpack ancestral and intergenerational trauma? Is your relationship strained by cultural differences? Moved and feeling homesick? Cultural fluidity, exploring identity, finding belonging, and navigating transition are common themes that lead folx to my practice. Authentic living is your birthright. You don't have to transform generational cycles on your own. I invite you to receive the support you deserve on your journey. When we heal ourselves, we heal the world.

I believe that many in our society feel lost and alone, disconnected from the greater whole. Change happens within the context of a safe, caring relationship with another human being, and individual healing can ripple outward to friends, family , and eventually the wider world.

Seeking support after the death of a loved one, or preparing for the death of a loved one, can be overwhelming. The focus of my work is to support individuals, families, couples, and children/teenagers when they are dealing with the challenges of loss due to an illness or other issues related to loss. I strive to help my clients cope with the difficult prospects of loss such as death, suicide, divorce, marital discord, terminal illness, chronic illness, job loss, and the challenges it brings to the client, and their family .

Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, or family and relationship issues, I have worked with clients suffering with the same.
Throughout my 25 years of experience as a psychotherapist, I have found that everybody struggles with difficult challenges at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, life did not come with an instructional manual to guide us through these various struggles. Psychotherapy is a journey that can help support you, provide you with insight and clarity, and assist you in making positive steps towards your preferred future. Equipped with extensive training in various therapeutic modalities, I bring these tools to each session with my clients.

I also offer family therapy for parents with teenage and adult kids.
I offer counseling therapy from a holistic perspective that considers the whole person: mind, body, and spirit. I aspire to assist individuals to cultivate self-confidence, self-healing, and self-acceptance. My passion is to help people who want to explore spirituality and, in the process, understand their purpose and meaning of life because I believe we are all spiritual beings here to live meaningful lives. My knowledge about reincarnation and the law of karma forms the lens and aids me to discern the current life challenges one is going through. I tend to lean towards existential, meditation, and mindfulness-based modalities.

As a psychologist, I also offer Collaborative psychological evaluations which involve questions from the client, family members and system providers (schools, pediatricians, psychiatrists).
I enjoy working with children and adolescents of any age. Listening to children and teenagers is so important as they often can tell us what we need to know to support them. I use both talking and play to facilitate connection and communication. Interpersonal experiences affect our relationships and the way in which we interact with others. I have a strong background in family systems, school collaboration and developmental and attachment theory which is instrumental in my work with clients. I also work with families to facilitate communication when there is a disruption in the family system due to divorce or adoption.

I use a family systems approach to help you and yours to feel understood and connected.
Are you feeling anxious and overwhelmed about your relationship with your partner? Are you & your partner experiencing more frustration and conflict? Are you as a couple or as parents stressed out and needing support to help navigate this new normal? It makes sense that partners are in need of resources during these difficult times. Talking to someone to find hope and to feel more grounded can help. I specialize in treating relationships. I guide couples in managing everyday challenges as well as major changes in their life by providing skills and support to strengthen and restore relationships.

People generally decide to come to therapy when they experience a difference between how their lives are going, and how they would like their lives to be. I welcome the chance to help people make important changes in their lives. While my therapy approach varies from person to person, and is guided by what an individual wants to address, I feel our relationship and mutual trust are essential for effective work in therapy. Depending on someone's concerns, I call upon therapy approaches including mindfulness-based, internal family systems, cognitive-behavioral, hypnosis, EMDR, and Hakomi therapy. I welcome your inquiry about my practice!

In my own life I have wrestled with health problems, family issues, and self doubt so I know something about the frustration these challenges bring.
I like to work with young people, college students, adults, and families who want to make changes in the way they think about themselves and / or interact with the world around them. Adjusting to our ever-changing world is frustrating and challenging. People use our meetings to share their anxieties and find the motivation they need to experiment with change strategies that can lead them towards the outcomes they desire. Our work is self and relationship-directed and outcome-oriented. We focus on your resources and find small steps you can take in the present. I regularly evaluate our progress.

My role is to provide empathic listening and support while acting as a guide in removing the barriers and patterns that have developed over a lifetime.

Life is busy and can be complicated and messy. Balancing relationships, family , work, and your health is a challenge. You probably can’t remember the last time you took the time to care for YOU! Do you struggle to find balance in your life and time to take care of yourself? Do you struggle with partner, personal, or professional relationships? Do you feel defeated as a parent? Do you feel overwhelmed by feelings, worries, and stress? Do you feel exhausted from creating “what ifs” in your head, feeling dread and uncertainty about the future? Does chronic illness impact your life? Don’t worry, there is hope!

This real-life experience lends another set of skills many of my clients find valuable in processing through their own personal/ family experiences.
I love helping people find their way, whether through traumatic experiences from the past or through current life stressors. For adolescents and adults who have experienced emotional trauma, I utilize trauma-focused approaches, including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). There are a variety of approaches to therapy and together, we will explore which would be most beneficial to you as the client. I find that most people really enjoy the therapeutic experience and come out of it more self-assured and confident.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
