“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou

Hello and welcome! 

I’ve been where you are now and understand the courage and vulnerability it takes to seek support. Thank you for taking the time to explore what connecting with me may be like. I’m glad you’re here! 

I was twenty-something when life taught me strong relationships are the key to health and well-being. Neuroscience has proven this true and we now know that we are inherently wired for connection on a neurobiological level.  Connection isn’t a luxury, it’s essential to our survival. Ironically, it’s connection that can also be the source of our most profound pain and suffering. 

No matter how deep the hurt or how great the loss, things can shift when we feel seen, heard, and understood by another. We heal in connection with others. 

My goal, as a therapist, is to provide a space that allows you to experience safety, acceptance, and compassion; a space for you to be courageous, vulnerable, and authentic; a space to experience hope and genuine connection. It’s my hope that therapy with me is an experience of feeling seen, heard, and cared for, a place where you are not alone. 

I enjoy working with both individuals and couples from all walks of life. I am LGBTQIA+ allied, sex and kink positive, and I strive to be inclusive and affirming of all identities. You’ll find that I’m curious and compassionate as we explore your thoughts, feelings, and relationships with yourself and the world. 

A little about me: I’m technically a native Texan, but claim roots in Memphis and California, too. I graduated from St. Edward’s University with my MA in Counseling. I also have a Master of Business Administration from Texas State. In my past life, I was a 3rd-grade teacher with Austin ISD, where I taught math and science. I love running, reading, cupcakes, and dogs. When I’m not at Therapy Austin you can find me at Town Lake with one of our fur babies, chauffeuring one of our teenagers to one of their many activities, or trying to find some peace and quiet with my husband.
