About My Clients

My ideal client is an individual at any stage and age in life. Why? Because we all bring our childhood into our adulthood. Because we are all on a lifelong journey that has a past, present, and future. Because our story develops over a lifetime and takes lots of twists and turns. Because therapy at any age helps us make sense of our lives so we can live more meaningfully, purposefully, and abundantly. I do not accept insurance,but I can provide a Superbill receipt for out-of-network benefits.

My Background and Approach

With 20 years of combined experience as a master’s level educator, learning disability specialist, school counselor, and dean of faculty, I have a unique perspective working with children and teens who have experienced trauma, interpersonal and school related struggles. I am also specifically trained to coach parents at different stages of the parenting cycle. Adults and couples see me for support with stress and relationship struggles. I utilize emotionally focused, trauma informed-attachment focused, and Gottman strategies in my work supporting adults.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I value and seek out differences in people no matter one's ethnicity, race, faith, gender, sexuality, or political beliefs. My faith is informed by the Christian tradition, but as an active participant of Interfaith Action of Central Texas (IACT), I believe in cultivating peace, and respect for all faith communities through dialogue, service, and collaboration. I believe in families and supporting connection and unconditional love in the nuclear family whether that means a single parent, a large family, a new definition of family of friends, relatives, and neighbors all supporting growth and understanding of each other. I believe in animals. I am an active supporter of Austin Pets Alive and The Austin Animal Center. My standard Poodle, Gunner, is a therapy dog and loves to attend therapy with my clients...when he is invited of course.

  • Buddhism
