I am a licensed psychologist providing emotionally focused (EFT) and trauma informed, individual and relationship counseling.
Psychologist in Austin, TX
In 2015, I completed a graduate certificate in Substance Use Counseling. Since that time, I have been specializing in substance use work. I have worked in residential treatment centers, college counseling centers, and outpatient clinics providing individual, group, and couples counseling to folks struggling with managing their substance use. I work from a harm reduction model, meaning I do not demand abstinence of my clients and meet them where they are at.
I completed a 2 year trauma post-doctoral fellowship, where I focused on treating individuals and couples with complex trauma histories. I received didactic training in working with complex PTSD and learned about evidence based treatments for treating trauma. Throughout my graduate training, I also completed trauma specific coursework and frequently received supervision and training in working with folks who experienced sexual, physical, and emotional abuse in early childhood and adulthood.
I have completed a training externship, certified through ICEEFT, in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. I also received 8 hours of clinical supervision for my EFT couples therapy work. During my graduate training, I completed a didactic course in relationship therapy and received live supervision while providing couples counseling. Since 2020, I have been regularly treating couples.
I completed a two year post-doctoral fellowship in trauma psychology in 2022. Throughout this fellowship, I worked with individuals and couples with complex trauma histories, while receiving supervision and training in evidence based trauma treatment. I have been working with folks with complex trauma histories, under clinical supervision of trauma specialists, since 2016.
