I work with adults and teens facing grief and loss, life transitions, trauma and navigating intimate relationships.
Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Austin, TX
You're tired of feeling panicked for seemingly no reason, constantly replaying scenarios and worries in your head. You tell yourself you need to “get over” your difficulties and deal with things on your own. You don’t allow yourself to ask for help or get close to people. As a result, you feel isolated, worthless and flawed. You keep asking yourself, “What’s wrong with me?” The process of therapy helps you to reduce your pain while getting to know yourself on a deeper level. We will work together to tackle anxiety and depression. We’ll also help you heal from past hurts inflicted by others. This process allows you to work through painful experiences and move forward in life. As you become more emotionally aware, you’ll be able to form healthier relationships with others in your life.
Do you feel yourself getting riled up when your child misbehaves or doesn't listen? Do you and your spouse disagree on how to raise your child? Are you worried about repeating the mistakes of your own parents? Maybe you feel disconnected from your spouse or child and are tired of having the same arguments every week. There's no manual that tells you how to be a parent, yet so many parents feel shamed or like they're doing something wrong. I hold a non-judgmental space for both teens and parents to explore concerns and build skills to reconnect. Together we'll find ways to bring more positive energy and playfulness into your relationships so your family can connect, heal, and grow.
You’re seeking help because you’re smart, motivated, yet you feel insecure or ambivalent in your relationships. You feel guilty or ashamed, stuck in the same thought spiral day-in and day-out. There’s a little voice in your head that criticizes and questions every decision you make. You’ve worked hard to get where you are, but still feel like you fall short. You’re tired of feeling judged, most of all by yourself. I work with adults struggling with quarter-life crisis and navigating intimate relationships. I will help you find immediate relief from what feels overwhelming, while also exploring deeper concerns. We’ll work to discover answers and collaborate in a deep way to make sense of your experiences, create meaning, and grow.
