Meet the Providers
No matter what mental health environment I work in, I believe the therapeutic relationship is the key to the therapeutic process, therefore I use a variety of different modalities and techniques to meet each individuals needs. I have many years of experience providing therapy and have worked in many areas of mental health from non-profits to an acute mental health hospital. I am passionate and experienced working with children, adolescents, adults, and parents. I am also trained in EMDR, TBRI, and sandtray therapy. I enjoy using expressive modalities in addition to talk and play in therapy. I provide treatment in a variety of areas to include attachment issues, grief and loss, parenting, PTSD, trauma, anxiety, at-risk youth, active-duty military and veterans, and families.
A client is at an action stage of change or contemplating change. At the beginning of each session, I inform the client of confidentiality, and they confirm understanding their rights. I provide a thorough intake and gather all the necessary information to
develop a foundation for treatment. I provide a safe and nurturing setting for the client to begin to bond with me and begin to work on identified problems we identify together. A treatment plan is established the client signs and agrees to follow.
Everyone goes through different seasons in their life. They have times of motivation and times of feeling stuck, overwhelmed, sad, and scared. No matter what season of life you are in, I will meet you there. I will listen and guide you with support and empathy for whatever it is you are going through.
Difficulties with mental health are incredibly common but that doesn’t mean you have to suffer alone. I encourage anyone struggling with their mental health to seek help from a professional. I enjoy learning about people and will work with you to understand your individual needs and challenges. If I think medications may be beneficial in your journey to recovery, I will utilize the least amount of medication possible to ensure your safety and comfort.
As a therapist my goal is to provide a safe and supportive space to work side by side with individuals to overcome trauma and various barriers. I would like us to collaborate and make sure that you are receiving the treatment that you desire and deserve. Beginning counseling can be scary, I strive to make my space a calm, comfortable place, where you can feel safe enough to journey alongside me in your treatment.
I have worked in the mental health for 6 years. Currently I specialize with clients dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma and life transitions. I enjoy working with adults and older adults who are working on current concerns or concerns from the past. I take an eclectic and collaborative approach with each client. I like to take the time to get know a client to see what modalities would work best with them.
I am a 33-year-old queer person who grew up in a small town in Texas. In addition to my professional work, I am a member of the Austin chapter of an LGBT focused non-profit organization. I have a significant amount of experience working with those who may be going through
psychiatric crisis. I look forward to working with you.
I have an extensive background in mental health and have worked with a wide array of clientele ranging from children as young as the age of five to geriatric. I also have experience in working with clients in the following areas: trauma (sexual trauma, emotional and physical abuse), anxiety/depression, psychosis, and mood disorders. I have worked in inpatient/outpatient settings, group settings, residential settings, and community based social work. With a client centered, solution focused approach, my goal is to provide an environment for the client to feel safe and secure in exploring their emotions, self-goals, and how the client views themselves.
Mental Health is a vital part of overall health and wellness that we often “put on the back burner” and focus on work, family and social aspects of our lives. I have many years of experience as psychiatric Physician Assistant helping people with mental health wellness. Support of therapist, social network and family helps. Try to think of your care like project or journey you are undertaking. I love helping people on this journey and would say your responsibility to me and you is to communicate history, feelings, share in decision making and attend sessions, and adherence to treatment. Keep working because it is all about being your best self.
I believe in working collaboratively with my client to help them in the best way possible. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) strategies to help client change their unhelpful patterns of thinking which can keep them feeling stuck and unfulfilled. I provide open-minded and compassionate care. I also have training in providing trauma-responsive care and make sure to meet clients whatever their needs
My approach is psychodynamic and emotions-focused. I like to include processing, interactive feedback, and supportive feedback during therapy sessions. I understand the importance of meeting the client where they are at mentally and emotionally. In a positive and caring environment, I will not only listen, but provide you with helpful skills to overcome the struggles. My goal is to provide an environment of compassion and support to help individuals learn and thrive.
