I have been a practicing Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Texas since 2006. I entered the counseling field as a lay minister in 1999. I completed my undergraduate studies in Greek/Linguistics at the University of Texas at Austin in 1998 and completed a Masters Degree in Counseling from Texas State University in 2006.
I have been employed in a variety of professional settings in my field, including inpatient psychiatric care at a private hospital, intensive outpatient group therapy, and career counseling at a university and workforce center.
We will combine my diverse knowledge and skill set and your goals into crafting your treatment plan to ensure that you receive the best therapeutic practices for your situation.
What pathway will work for you?
I am trained to practice as a Dialectical Behavior Therapist through Behavioral Tech as well as being part of a DBT Consult Team. I also utilize (EMDR Therapy) Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy as an effective treatment of trauma.
Passionate about the benefits of outdoor counseling, also called Walk and Talk Therapy, I believe that in such an environment of growth, openness, and exploration clients can discover key insights into shaping the life they desire. I have the professional and life skills to help you do that.
I live in Austin with my family and seek to achieve the same life balance that I will support you in pursuing.
