I specialize in issues of sexual assault , infidelity/affairs/cheating, & pre-marital and marital counseling, and anxiety/depression.
Sometimes Change Is Hard. As humans we are much like butterflies. As the caterpillar works in the dark lonely cocoon to transform, its struggle gives it the strength to emerge and take flight. And sometimes that change is so hard for us humans that we need help. We may need encouragement, guidance, tools, feedback or a safe place to process. Seeking counseling or psychotherapy in Austin can be daunting. I have 30+ yrs providing mental health services. Together we will identify your goals, strengths and weakness. My goal is to guide, empower & encourage my clients to become their best selves with the most effective life skills.

I am passionate about walking alongside folks who have experienced sexual abuse or assault , intimate partner violence, and domestic violence.
Working alongside diverse clients and folks who identify in the LGBT+ community brings me fulfillment. In therapy I like to engage clients in mindfulness and body-oriented techniques. I am EMDR trained and enjoy this tool to help clients move forward with healing. Primarily I operate from strengths-based approaches, utilizing expressive techniques such as art and music to highlight the therapeutic process. My approach is tailored to each individual, generally drawing from a basis of holistic, humanistic, trauma informed, evidence-based therapies. I am empathetic and direct, while helping clients find healing and new ways of coping.

I have focused on the areas of domestic violence and sexual assault .
*****Virtual Therapy Only at This Time*****. Finding the right therapist in itself can be overwhelming. I provide free consultations so that you can get an idea if we are a good fit. It's been my passion the last 13 years to help people after experiencing traumatic events. I am trained in EMDR which is also known as "no talk therapy". You can share as much or as little as you like making it a preferable type of therapy for those struggling with trauma but not comfortable talking about it. I have also worked closely with first responders for the last 10 years making me familiar with the culture.

Some days are harder than others. Let’s face it… some days are a LOT harder than others. Have you ever experienced feeling completely alone when you have been around people all day? Have you experienced childhood abuse or sexual assault , and as a result have a huge hole in your heart that has left you feeling broken and emotionally raw? Have you experienced anxiety, depression, trauma, domestic abuse, struggles with self-esteem, or other sexual struggles? If you have a desire to work on your personal growth and make changes for your emotional wellness, you are in the right place!

I've worked with survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault for ten years as an advocate.
You're here because you're hurting. Maybe it's from a past abusive relationship -- romantic or otherwise. Perhaps you had a neglectful, dismissive, or intrusive parents. Maybe you experienced sexual abuse . Whatever the reason, you find yourself anxious, numb, or just plain overwhelmed by your feelings. Sometimes you find it hard to enjoy life, the past keeps coming up. You find yourself wishing you didn't feel the things you do. You're afraid that there's something wrong with you because you can't get over it. I'm here to tell you that there's hope. Therapy can help with these issues and you don't have to do it alone.

I work with individuals and relationships working through issues of identity, sexuality, relationship difficulties, depression, anxiety, trauma, and other hardship. If you are a survivor of sexual abuse or trauma, I will provide a caring presence for you to explore the emotions you are feeling. Our bodies and minds have a continuous dialogue about our emotions. Have you noticed your stomach in knots, tense shoulder pain, or a feeling of numbness when anxious? I use Somatic Therapy techniques to assist you in deepening body awareness, accessing a sense of safety in your body, and feeling a greater sense of ease in everyday life.

It’s my fault. I should have known better. I could have stopped it. If you are here you may have experienced sexual abuse as a child or someone has forced, tricked, or pressured you into something sexual. Your mind screamed no, but your voice remained silent. Fear paralyzed you. Memories are foggy, but haunting. You feel dirty, used and ashamed. You hate your body. Anxiety and sadness consume you. It feels like you have been torn to pieces and your power taken. Every decision and feeling is followed by confusion and doubt. Can I ever trust my instincts again? All you want is to forget it happened and move on with your life.

In addition to being EMDR trained I have over a decade of experience helping victims of sexual assault and domestic violence through my work with women's shelters and non profit agencies that serve victims of abuse.
* Currently full, email to be placed on Waitlist* I believe that every person has the ability to heal and that power comes from within. I work with individuals and families to help them find peace and strength. I have experience working with women, men and children who have experienced traumatic life events. Depression and anxiety - sadness and fear - are areas that I help clients gain power over symptoms to find peace within. A philosophy that I use to guide my approach is this: in life pain is inevitable, suffering, however, is not. If you are suffering know that help exists in the form of compassionate and caring counseling.

I have experience working with clients around a number of issues, including: anxiety and depression, childhood trauma such as sexual abuse , grief and loss, unhealthy and abusive relationships, core shame, body shame, and adoption related trauma.
I often work with clients who struggle to accept and feel compassion for their whole self. Sometimes that can look like trying to shut out painful experiences, worrying that something is "wrong" with you, or struggling to connect with your true desires and feelings. I offer clients a warm space to process the injuries they carry from the broader world and from the intimate world of family, friends, and other relationships. I invite clients to bring the complete selves, even the parts that are hard to be with. I strive to provide the tools and support to help clients connect to a fuller sense of aliveness and groundedness.

My areas of speciality include recovery from spiritual abuse, sexual abuse , and healing from conversion therapy experiences.
Shame sucks, suffocates, stunts our growth, and kills our creativity. It makes us hide and deny who we are. It keeps us in the shadows hidden by loneliness and isolation. The truth is that each of us has a deep-seated desire to know others and be known by others. "Ubuntu" is a Bantu (South African) word that means "I am because we are," or "In being known by you - I know myself." I want to create a safe space where you can explore, know, and understand your whole self, even the parts that you're sometimes afraid to look at. I want to help you remove shame, fear, loneliness, and guilt so that you can manifest your authentic self.

My work focuses on helping people with childhood trauma issues, addictive behaviors and relationships issues. With over 20 years of experience, I have seen that childhood experiences of neglect or emotional, physical and sexual abuse , often cause serious problems like anxiety and depression which may eventually lead to addiction. Some of these people grow addictive behaviors using substances (alcohol, drugs) or processes (sex, love, work) that are unconscious defenses used to deal with their emotional pain. There is a high correlation between painful childhood experiences and addictive behaviors.
