Do you often feel misunderstood? Have you been told to toughen up because you are "too sensitive"? Do you long to feel closer to others but feel overwhelmed by the task? Having the capacity for depth and complexity can be difficult to navigate in our competitive, linear-oriented, results-driven culture. Knowing and accepting yourself for simply "you" (not who others think you should be) is an important practice to cultivate and will help release toxic stress and shame, allowing you to connect more deeply with yourself and others.

I am a professional creativity, leadership, and career coach, consultant, educator, and facilitator based in Austin, Texas. My areas of focus in coaching include mindfulness, creativity, organizational psychology, existential issues, spirituality, and life transitions, drawing inspiration from humanistic, existential, positive, transpersonal, and Jungian depth psychology. I help individuals and organizations tap into their innate creativity for greater insight, innovation, collaboration, and resilience. While my Ph.D. is in psychology / creativity studies, I am not a therapist or clinical psychologist, so I cannot accept insurance.

Do you struggle with depression and anxiety? Is your mental health affecting your work, your family or your friendships? Do your thoughts seem to always fall into a negative loop of what could’ve been or what should be? Are you exhausted from trying to fix how you’re feeling with more work, more stuff, more sex, more drinks? Are you tired of laying awake at night unable to turn off your thoughts? Do you feel like you’re doing everything you’re suppose to but still wonder what’s missing? Could life be happier, more connected, less… miserable? If you identify with any of the above, you’re in the right place.

Greetings! No matter what your reason is for seeking counseling, there is no better way to find solutions for life's challenges, big or small, than to share them with an impartial ear. Years ago, I was introduced to the concept that I can only learn that much about myself, which I am willing to share with another person, who can objectively reflect back what was heard. Then the opportunity to learn if I had any skewed thinking that affected my life choices or interpretations was presented. The pursuit of deeper understanding and reflection began for me, and after more life experience, I set out to be that person for others.

I believe that therapy is an important tool for creating an intentional space to explore how we exist in the world and to practice communicating our emotions and needs. As a relational and trauma informed therapist, I believe that the relationship between a client and therapist is the foundation of healing and growing. In this way, comfort and trust are key to providing a space to freely set intention and dig into meaningful work to pave a path towards growth. A core belief of my practice is that your feelings and self awareness carry a great deal of wisdom about what you need in order to heal and grow.

When working with clients I meet them where they are at in their journey for change- whether they are unsure of what in life needs to be different or if they are already maintaining progress and change. Wherever a client is starting their therapy journey I am here to help increase insight and understanding into problems and help people come up with effective ways to manage symptoms, relationships, or seasons of transition. Areas of focus I help most clients with include skills-based anxiety and depression symptom management, trauma recovery with EMDR or talk therapy, and post-break up or divorce recovery.

Have you been feeling trapped by societal expectations, questioning your personal identity, facing relationship conflicts or stifling family dynamics? Or experiencing work or academic stress and overwhelm? Do you find yourself coping through means of avoidance, denial, detachment, or distraction? These coping modes often stem from our family of origin and are not adequate for healthy adult functioning and impede forward progress. If you recognize this in yourself and are seeking a change in your approach to life, look no further. If you are ready to commit to change in whatever form it may come, reach out to me.

It takes courage to seek out therapy, so congratulations on taking the first step in your journey of therapeutic healing and connection to self and others. What happens in the therapeutic setting in conjunction with lifestyle enhancements can, over time, bring about lasting change. With gentle facilitation, you can increase awareness of body and mind and enhance mood, motivation, agency, and integration of skills. These self-improvements allow for a more self-directed life that can be lived more fully through consciously curated personal values and choices.

Maybe you're newly single, or new to town, and you despair because you're lonely, you feel lost, and you wonder if things will ever get better. Perhaps you have a history of complicated relationships, and you've noticed you repeat the same cycle but can't stop. Or could it be you say yes... to everything and everyone, and now you're burned out and resentful. Getting up in the morning is a struggle. You're on the verge of crying. You're lashing out. Whatever is going on, your situation is leaving you anxious, discouraged, and even hopeless at times. Sometimes life circumstances feel overwhelming, confusing, or just plain hard.

It can be difficult to ask for help. Sometimes you're not sure if your situation necessarily qualifies for therapy. I believe it is okay to need support, to be vulnerable, or just want some time to reflect on what is going on for you. My role is to help my clients find this authentic place which ultimately leads to more comfort and peace. I consider it a privilege to have a client enter the office and be vulnerable enough to reach out for help.

Do you feel exhausted, overworked, and under appreciated? Perhaps you believe that if you are just the perfect partner, parent, child, sibling, or employee that you will no longer feel this way. However, the burnout is becoming extreme, and you desperately want to feel differently. Maybe you are an empath who worries that you are “too sensitive”, or have an anxious attachment style and fear being considered “too needy”, or a perfectionist who worries that you will never be worthy of the joy, peace, and love that you see others experiencing. Or perhaps you are a people-pleaser wondering if anyone will every truly know the real you.

Are your struggling with school or college? Do you have feelings and thoughts that you do not understand, and don't feel comfortable talking to friends or family about them? These are common experiences for many people in our complicated society. Sometimes people "act out", fall into addictions, just shut down, or make bad decisions. They want change, but are not sure how. That's when counseling and analysis can really help.
