About My Clients

Do you keep playing out the same patterns in your relationships? Do you struggle to understand the intensity of some of your emotional reactions to your surroundings? Our wounds from the past can inform our behavior in the present. In therapy we can examine our wounds, treat them with love, tenderness, and care, and offer them the time and space necessary to heal. Our relationships improve as a result, as do our views of the world and ourselves when we are no longer operating out of fear.

My Background and Approach

I began clinical work at Lifeworks here in Austin and have a lot of experience working with kids, teens, families, and adults. I believe my clients to be the expert on their own lives and I see my job as facilitating growth and healing in whatever direction my client see's fit. I am trauma informed and continue to receive training in the Polyvagal theory of trauma, eating disorders, and intuitive eating. I work from a solution focused frame work through the lens of feminist and attachment theory. I am sex positive and an LGBTQ safe space.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that the healing process involves a delicate balance of both learning and unlearning; unlearning the maladaptive coping mechanisms and ways of thinking about ourselves and others we have developed over time, while simultaneously learning new ways of coping and relating in order to unearth the person and relationships underneath the hardened layers of self preservation. I firmly believe my clients to be the experts on their own lives and that we are all simply doing the best we can with what we have been taught at any given moment. I work with families, teens, children, couples and individuals with openness, authenticity, and a love of human nature in all its light and darkness.I passionate about Body Positivity and the Health at Every Size Movement and continue to receive training in the treatment of Eating Disorders and Intuitive Eating. I work from a systemic, social justice oriented perspective.
