Hello! My mission is to help millenial professionals achieve more peace of mind, gain more clarity, and lead more joyful lives! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with 20 years of counseling experience, but you might also call me a “mental health wellness therapist”. My calling consists of providing counseling and therapy to Austin area young professionals who may be feeling too stressed out, burnt out, or too overwhelmed to move forward. My specialty includes treating anxiety and/ or depression through individual therapy.

My approach is very client-centered and I truly welcome a collaborative approach and encourage feedback and ongoing dialogue with my clients. I really enjoy my work because I love establishing genuine therapeutic, supportive, and empowering relationships with my clients. I approach my sessions without any preconceived notions about what I believe is best for my clients. Instead, I strive to provide a compassionate and safe environment as we work collaboratively to address your goals and needs.

After 20 years of working as a therapist in the counseling field, I believe that human beings already possess within themselves an incredible innate ability and resolve to overcome and push through all types of unbelievable psychological and emotional barriers. In fact, I believe that you as a self-motivated resilient type of individual you probably already possess within you the most appropriate and necessary internal resources that you need to overcome any obstacle that crosses your path. All I do is provide you with a completely confidential, safe, and judgement free space so that you can safely process your thoughts and feelings about the adversity that you are facing. Then, together we explore and identify the right strategies and tools that you need to overcome those challenges or adversities that you may be facing.
