LPC-A @ Austin Family Counseling

Licensed Professional Counselor-Associate

I see therapy as an opportunity for people to untangle their thoughts, to be seen and held in their experience, and to explore what’s beneath our behavior. I strive to empower people and guide them on their path. I believe everyone has the innate ability to heal themselves, but we may need support along the way.

My counseling approach is holistic, person-centered, compassionate and trauma-informed. I’m here to help you feel seen and heard, and to reconnect you with your inner wisdom. I strive to meet you where you are at, and collaborate to utilize modalities that work for you.

Others often comment on my strengths in the therapy room as being down to earth and allowing people to feel unconditionally accepted and safe to be vulnerable. I especially enjoy working with highly sensitive people, those who feel misunderstood, grief and loss, self esteem, vulnerability, creativity, intuition, and spiritual awakening.

If any of this resonated, I’d love for you to reach out to me so we can set up an intake and see if I am a good fit for you. I look forward to connecting with you!
