About My Clients

Are you feeling like life stressors are just too much for you to handle? Do you feel overwhelmed and don't know how to cope? I am here to help! I believe that all individuals have all of the tools and resources within themselves to live a fulfilling life they enjoy. My role is to help my clients discover their inner strengths and build tools to help them navigate life stressors. I utilize a holistic approach and incorporate nature-based therapy, mindfulness, and movement to bring healing.

My Background and Approach

I take a very relational approach to therapy and base my work off of my training in Trust Based Relational Interventions which is a trauma informed lens that provides a safe space for clients to explore what is happening within them. I maintain an open and curious perspective when working with clients that allows a judgment free space for clients to feel heard. I utilize different therapeutic techniques including somatic practices, nature-based therapy, attachment-based therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and play therapy to support individuals in their healing journey. I draw from many somatic practices that empower clients to explore the sensations in their bodies and heal trauma that is stored not only in their memories but also in their bodies. I believe that all individuals have everything they need within them to be their most authentic, curious, and empowered selves. My role is to help clients work through ways of living that are no longer serving them.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am very passionate about fighting against injustices, specifically when it comes to women's issues and racial injustices. I aim to provide a practice that works through racial generational trauma and the physical impact it can cause to one's body. I support organizations that are working to combat child and sex trafficking as that is a cause very close to my heart. When I’m not working, you can find me exploring different trails and spots in nature all over Austin and the surrounding areas. I have a passion for traveling and learning from other cultures and ways of life. I love spending time with friends and family and building deep relationships with those around me.
