Life is inevitably composed of episodes of change. From new experiences and life events to trauma and loss, transitions in life challenge ones' emotional balance. When first entering therapy I believe that it is natural to be unable to identify all of these feelings. Often you may only know that “something is off”. My goal is to sit with you through uncertainty and walk with you through the process of self-exploration and healing. My two main passions are working with those experiencing grief and loss and/or dual diagnosis serious mental illness and substance use disorder.

Let's face it, life can be really hard. Especially in this COVID climate, we can feel isolated and alone and sometimes we turn to drugs and alcohol as a way to cope with life's challenges. However, as the consequences and repercussions of these behaviors begin to escalate it becomes clear that help is needed. I am here to help you manage substance use , addiction and alcohol use as well as life in recovery. Substance abuse is about so more than just the drugs or alcohol. I am here to help you navigate the anxiety, depression and life changes necessary to create a life in recovery.

I specialize in substance use , co-occurring disorders, and spirituality and do both individual and group work with adults.
I believe that all individuals have the capacity to self-heal. A supportive and respectful therapeutic relationship can be the perfect catalyst for growth and change. Through a guided and collaborative approach, we can discover why we fall into the same patterns, often reliving past hurts, and develop practical strategies for choosing to live life differently. By exploring vulnerability and tapping in to our creative, authentic selves, lasting change can occur.

Trauma is such a wide umbrella that encompasses so many unique and individual experiences that we have all been impacted in one form or another. The way we process that trauma can often look like depression, anxiety, substance use , or just feeling like we are not truly thriving in life. We often feel held back in our careers or relationships because of these unresolved issues. I am here to help facilitate the process of accepting and growing from these experiences so that you may find peace.

I am trained and certified as a counselor, coach and educator and have extensive experience working with individuals, couples and families on issues of substance use disorder, compulsive sexual behaviors, relationship issues and wellness.
My passion for over 30 years has been to help people explore, identify and deal with problematic or out of control behaviors and the effects in their lives and in the lives of loved ones. I have always believed that these excessive behaviors have served as one way for people to regulate their moods, their neurochemistry, and to cope with anxiety and fears. In other words, to change the way they feel. I enjoy helping people learn to manage stress and anxiety in new ways. I also love helping people improve their relationship with themselves and others and to develop a deeper sense of meaning and purpose.

I have a personal and professional life experiences with substance use disorders and ways to live a recovered life.
If you have tried everything you can think of and are still stuck we might be a fit. Change begins with awareness of one's self. The only requirement is that I become willing to change the way I see myself, others, and my expectations about how life should be. Nearly all behaviour is learned and therefore can be considered for change. Present moment awareness and a non-judgmental perspective can create the potential to see deeply into one's needs and wants.

Having worked as both a practitioner, supervisor and in organizational leadership treating family violence, substance use disorders, mental illness, as well as children and their parents, I am able to pull from rich and diverse experiences.
I'm a therapist as well as the Executive Director of Innovation360 Austin. I specialize in helping young people and adults who have become stuck, adrift or immobilized. I also greatly enjoy supporting family members in need of consultation or counseling related to their concerns for a loved one. Some clients or family members join me for therapy because they know something is wrong and something needs to change but aren't sure of what true help may look like. Anxiety, insecurity, depression, and challenges in relating to others are frequent obstacles that my clients face and develop the capacity to overcome.

Sometimes our lives get to a point where we're just surviving, rather than thriving. In survival mode, we cope the best we can - this may mean using disordered eating behaviors, self-harm, substance use , self-criticizing inner talk, or self-destruction. I'm here to help guide you out of survival mode and into your best life. In therapy, we'll explore how you're surviving and how you can thrive. We'll identify changes you want and I will offer suggestions to help you create these changes. We will balance this change with lots of self-compassion.

My priority is to make counseling accessible to people of all backgrounds, to help determine their therapeutic path. I have experience working with individuals struggling with issues around substance use , trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, relationships and an overall wounded connection to themselves. Life is full of various changes and stressors that impact our wellbeing and can suddenly become unmanageable. Talk therapy is an avenue that I believe can foster the space for people to practice releasing their own tension, while having the freedom and support to discover who they are, and the vision they have for their lives.

Have you been told to look at your substance use by someone you are close to? Are you worried you might have a problem or know that you do? Substance use is on a continuum, with abstinence on one end and severe abuse, or addiction, on the other. Historically, approaches to substance use treatment have been binary—you either use or you do not. While this approach is effective for some people, for most it feels restrictive and at times punitive. The goal of therapy is for you to determine—you may want to examine your use, minimize it, work toward ceasing use all together or even maintain positive changes you have already made.

My clients often turn to substance use , negative self-talk, avoidance, and impulsivity to deal with intense emotions and they spiral from there.
We all begin the therapeutic journey with our own set of strengths and needs. Sometimes our uniqueness promotes creativity, new perspectives, and collaboration. Other times our uniqueness can be terminal; leading to emptiness, feeling disconnected from self and others, and beliefs that mental health treatment may work for other people, but it won’t work for you. Therapy is not about “getting over” events and issues; it’s about understanding your triggers and learning how to manage your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors so that you can move forward and continue to build a fulfilling life.

I believe there is no typical addict each person is uniquely different and so are the situations in your lives that have taken to this place. I also believe that including families is an essential tool to helping the entire unit heal and reconnect. Correct Choices lead us to harmony with all things, no matter how long and hard the road can get. Life's cycles, eternal motion and the choices we are confronted with always give us Another Chance for Change. I accept some major insurance. Unlike other programs, I understand that sometimes getting seen is urgent and you don't want to wait weeks. I attempt to get clients in within 24 hours. And I am like you; I hate waiting in the reception area to see the counselor, therefore I make every attempt to stay on schedule this is a priority to me so that I won't disrespect your time. I am currently work towards a PhD. in Addiction since I find helping those who struggle with substance use disorders important and fulfilling.
