Board Certified Coach and Licensed Counselor @ Buck Dodson Inc

Whole Person Life Coaching, Gay & Bisexual Men’s Life Design, Individual and Relationship Counseling

My personal development journey began more than 25 years ago, and I’ve spent the last 15 of those in the life growth business, helping the people I serve create the lives and relationships they want. As a licensed psychotherapist, board certified life coach and innovative philanthropy leader, I spend my days having energizing conversations that generate fresh insights, new mindsets, radical shifts, and big connections. I work with a diverse client base including couples, creative entrepreneurs, executives, and artists, all of whom are inspired to build healthy, engaged lives fueled by their dreams and filled with joy, purpose, loving relationships, and rewarding careers.

I have a Master of Social Work from the University of Southern California and had thriving private practices in Los Angeles and Chicago prior to returning to my native Texas. I have specialized training in Relationship Counseling, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Presence-Based Coaching, Mindful Self-Compassion, and Contemplative Dance so I love integrating elements of all of those when I work with clients. Although I work with a variety of clients, I specialize in holistic coaching and counseling with gay and bisexual men, creatives struggling with perfectionism and women looking to show up more fully as leaders in their own lives.

On a personal note, I’m a native Texan (yes, Buck is my real name!), and I moved back to Austin in 2013. I love exploring all things wellness, creating as an Enneagram 4 and innovating as a Human Design Manifestor. I also love to chill on Lake Travis or on a beautiful beach every chance I get. I also love a good nap and hanging out with Goldie Hawn (my Golden Retriever).

I’m thrilled to be part of a vibrant community of like-minded health and wellness professionals and look forward to supporting each other’s work!
