I believe everyone desires to create and maintain meaningful connections. Sometimes we just lack the skills to communicate and/or express ourselves, or we get so busy in our daily lives that we forget how to connect with the ones we love. I offer services to individuals, couples, and families. I am multi-culturally competent and sex positive. I am passionate about helping all of my clients explore a variety of topics, including identity formation, premarital counseling, maternal issues, relationships, intimacy and sex, life transitions, grief , and family of origin and inter-generational issues.

I also specialize in grief and loss helping clients deal with the loss of loved ones as well as other losses in life.
You're struggling with parts of your life right now and aren't sure what to do. Perhaps it's your relationships that are struggling; you may be in the middle of a life change or transition; you may be grieving. There may be other factors in your life which are creating problems. Perhaps you're struggling with addictive behavior; your past is affecting your present; a trauma may be clouding your life. You feel like you don't matter, that you aren't worthy of love. Nobody is listening and you can't figure out how to be heard.

Have you endured a painful or sudden loss ? Are you experiencing tremendous difficulty adjusting to death , illness, or other significant life transition? Do you feel scared- or even convinced- that things will never improve? Have loved ones tried to reach out, but you don't feel like they understand your situation? There's a good chance that you are tired of "being strong" or tired of feeling alone. Likewise, there's a good chance that you need some emotional support during this trying time.

The thought about talking to a stranger about what’s going on is terrifying. When the process involves an honest conversation about symptoms, family problems, and addiction or other “shameful” family secrets, it can keep anyone from healing. You were taught to keep it to yourself and not cause trouble. To not air family secrets and that emotions are dramatic and useless. Especially the biggest of all- grief . There is nobody that gets to escape grief in this process. It's a myth that any of it has to be painful or overwhelming. And struggling with feelings or needing to heal doesn't make you weak.Nobody taught you how to do this.

Together we'll work to get you unstuck and give you greater control and insight so that you can feel safer with your emotions, move through your losses, change behavior patterns and internal scripts, and find purpose and meaning. We'll work collaboratively to address the underlying issues, not just treat symptoms. I also specialize in working adults of adoption & the unique challenges they face.

To get you there I specialize in grief counseling, trauma work, working through depression and anxiety with individuals, and helping couples with conflict and communication, creating new pathways of thought, and encouraging your own self awareness.
How are you being affected by our bizarre times? I see more and more personal suffering; relationship conflict, job frustration, painful loneliness, and of course grief . It seems we are all touched by grief lately. Counseling gives you the space to sort through some of this painful crap with a non-biased guide. Let's focus on defining what you need in order to live a happier, and more hopeful life. I don't believe life is supposed to be as difficult as the last few years have been for all of us. Let's shake it up and get back to living!

If you're looking for an Austin grief therapist, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in Austin.
