I have a curious mind and always been fascinated by learning about people. I am passionate about what I do and train regularly in Modern Analytic Theory, AEDP, and Interpersonal Neurobiology. What that all means is that there is a lot of science behind what we do, but in the room, our work together will feel warm, challenging but supportive, even playful at times. I believe deeply in the healing power of therapy and am excited to do this transformative work day to day.
I’m also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy), a targeted trauma therapy, which we may use to help integrate memories and past traumas that are keeping you stuck.
I’ve worked in a variety of clinical settings that inform my approach. Most recently, I have worked at The University of Texas at Austin Counseling and Mental Health Center. I’ve also worked at Austin Lakes Hospital Intensive Outpatient Program, Sol Community Counseling, and at an employee assistance program serving clients across North America. I received my Master of Science in Social Work (MSSW) from the University of Texas in Austin, Texas. My clinical work is also influenced by my own life experience and creative background. I have a Master of Fine Arts from Case Western Reserve University as well as experience in the corporate world.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (license number 53077) in the state of Texas.
