Life as we know it is never a straight path. We all come across hurdles, ups and downs that we have to navigate to get to the other side. I provide a safe space for people to come and share their unique life challenges, receive practical tools to overcome the same, and unleash their greatest potential. I am a strong believer in meeting the client where they are. We all experience circumstances differently and my goal is to make sure your specific needs are met. Tired of feeling "stuck"? Feeling like things will never change? I am here to help you move forward with life and offer the tools you need to live a wholesome life.
**My practice is currently full. Please email me to be placed on the waitlist ** Are you, or someone you know, feeling stuck and discouraged lately? As your counselor, my goal is to provide a warm, safe, and open environment for your thoughts, feelings, and presence. My passion is to establish support and guidance in an environment that fosters the opportunity for self-exploration and growth in the areas of your life that you feel need improvement.
I believe that counseling can be a crucial part of reaching your personal potential. I strive to come alongside each client or couple in their journey and assist them in reaching their goals. I desire to explore each unique story, in order to help the client increase awareness, gain new skills and implement practical strategies for a healthier and more purposeful life. Above all, I hope to create a safe space for healing to occur and genuine progress to be made.
My heart breaks every time I see couples who are stuck and running out of hope. "What's going on?" "The world says we're supposed to be okay being alone, but I feel miserable and alone." "What happened to us?" "How did we get here?" "We were never supposed to be those ‘other couples’." Relationships can become painful and unsettling. And disappointing. The good news is relationship injuries can be repaired. And, you can have the hopes and dreams you’ve long since dismissed as a pleasant fantasy.
Offering hope through understanding and support is truly a calling for me. I am very passionate about listening to others and their story (whether it be with words or play)—helping them find their voice and making sure they know that they are heard and valued. I have more than 20 years of experience working with children and families in various settings including child welfare, foster care and adoptions, hospital, maternity home, residential treatment, and schools. I use a relationship-rich, strengths-based, trauma-informed, and family systems- oriented approach.
My passion is working with children, adolescents, and families to help them develop the skills they need to successfully navigate the problems and challenges in life. I believe that children best express themselves through play, and through their play, we can gain access to their inner world. I also enjoy working with adolescents and teenagers, and I use many different activities to help them discover their inner strength. Through a positive therapeutic relationship, I can help you and your child make the changes necessary to live a happy and successful life.
I specialize in working with people who are concerned about their sex life and/or relationships. I've helped many clients dealing with a difficult breakup or struggling to stay together find hope and strength in a time of pain. If you feel your relationship is stuck in a rut or perhaps you'd like to find and keep a great partner, I can help. A reluctant partner doesn't have to be a barrier to change. I am happy to work with all who want to improve their quality of life and foster fulfilling relationships. When reaching out, please specify if you are private pay or plan to use insurance and if so, which one!
You've taken the courageous first step of looking for support. You never thought you'd end up here... feeling overwhelmed, emotional, and exhausted. You're not sure who you are anymore, and you don't feel like you can push through, ignore, or compartmentalize these feelings any longer. Maybe it started recently after a loss, relationship change, trauma, or life transition. Maybe it started much earlier in life. Either way, this territory feels difficult for you, and you're ready to give yourself what you find so much easier to give to others... HELP.
**Accepting clients for waiting list only** Welcome! The first step to starting therapy can be intimidating. It is normal to have a lot of questions and fears about the process. My goal is to create a comfortable, non-judgmental, and supportive environment where we can work together toward your goals. In our work together, I will use a combination of research-based approaches that are collaborative and tailored to your unique needs. My specialty areas are working with adolescents and their families, sex and gender minority individuals and healing trauma and mood disorders.
The most important part of therapy is the relationship. We have to be able to connect with our counselor on a real level. As a healing professional, with 20+ years experience I have seen this to be true. How can we expect people to be open and honest if the professional is cold and robotic? Creating a space that is safe, empathetic and caring includes bringing yourself into the room.
If you've had the traditional talk therapy in the past and that did not help you, or you're never been in therapy before and you're not sure how to go about it, you're in the right place. It can be exhausting to try different therapists and none of them seems to help you overcome your pain, or to suffer alone and not know how to get the help you need. You're here because you know you deserve better and I'm here to tell you, you truly DO deserve better. You should not suffer alone and I will be with you to heal from your pain in every step of your healing journey.
Life can be full of difficult challenges. At times, those challenges create feelings that can become overwhelming with no end in sight. Reaching out for help takes courage. Through a compassionate and non-judgmental atmosphere, I welcome the opportunity to help you identify ways to ease the process of working through those challenges and develop new skills toward more positive outcomes.
I have been serving adults and couples in the Round Rock/Austin area for over 10 years. My passion is working with adults with various different presenting issues, including loss and grief, marriage/relationship concerns, and trauma. It is my belief that a sound therapeutic relationship is a foundation for healing and I seek to provide that for all of my clients. Through this therapeutic relationship, and through a variety of treatment modalities including Object-Relations, Psychoanalytic, and Internal Family Systems, I strive to assist my clients in finding solutions to their concerns that work for their unique situations.
You may be struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, loss or adjusting to recent changes in your life. Let's work together in a collaborative relationship to identify the challenges you face and problem solve how to create more space and energy for joy in your life. I will provide compassionate support in a safe space to guide you in reaching your personal goals.

Are we falling out of love? Were we ever in love? Are we losing our connection? Did we ever really have one? Are these some of the questions you have and need the answers to? In the past, I have also wondered: how do you know if a relationship is right? How do you repair the relationship after the mistakes have been made or the connection is lost? I set out on a lifelong journey to answer these very questions for you.

Life can be hard. If you're dealing with stress at work, difficulties in your relationships, or overwhelm with your family (or all of those things at once), therapy can help. I will provide you with the support and safety necessary to get through whatever challenges life throws at you. I can help you process your emotions, build resilience, and increase your overall sense of well-being.
Many struggle with shame, guilt, envy, and the “what ifs” that cause stress in our day to day lives. We feel pressure from social media, TV, and internet to “have more, be more, do more.” We can dismantle those thoughts and beliefs, build ourselves back up, and be kinder to ourselves. The bulk of my experience is with severe and persistent psychiatric symptoms in both inpatient and outpatient settings, focused on providing solution-focused and trauma-informed care. I also understand the effect that chronic pain has on our mental health, the exhaustion it causes getting through even the smallest tasks every day.
