My therapeutic style is eclectic. I draw from various theories including modern attachment, psychoanalytic, interpersonal, and emotion-focused therapy.
However, I center relationships above all else in my practice. Over the course of our work, you can expect to discuss important relationships in your life including your relationship with yourself and the therapeutic relationship we build.
I am an LGTBQIA+ allied therapist, and I support the movement for racial justice. I honor and value your unique set of personal identities and I invite you to bring your whole self into the therapy room.
I earned my Ph.D. and M.A. in Counseling Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin. I completed my Doctoral Internship at Texas A&M University's Counseling and Psychological Services. Prior, I attended Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA and received a B.A. in Psychology. I am a licensed psychologist in the state of Texas (TX 39139).
I consider myself a life long learner. Beyond my passion for knowledge and understanding, I believe it is my duty to remain up to date on the latest research in the field. I am currently pursuing further study in PACT couples therapy, ADHD coaching, and existential therapy.
I am originally from Southern California, but I consider myself a full-fledged Austinite after nearly a decade in this city!
Austin's easily accessible nature and mind-blowing food scene leave me feeling right at home in the heart of Texas.
I have a wonderful partner, two sweet dogs, and a little one who keep me busy outside of my therapy practice. I also enjoy reading novels, spending time outside, and experimenting in the kitchen.
