My personal growth journey began more than 25 years ago, and I’ve spent the last 15 of those in the life development business, helping the people I serve create the lives and relationships they want. As a licensed psychotherapist, 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 gay and bisexual men as well as creatives struggling with perfectionism and introverts 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 with my husband, Kevin. I love healthy eating and exploring new workouts as well as spending time on Lake Travis and on a beautiful beach when I get the chance. I also love a good nap and hanging out with Goldie Hawn (our Golden Retriever)!
I’m thrilled to join this rich community of like-minded health and wellness professionals and look forward to learning about your work and supporting each others businesses!
