We all experience challenges and obstacles in our lives. Therapy can be a safe space for you to explore these challenges, helping to alleviate emotional pain. I believe therapy can have long lasting results and improve lives by allowing people to better understand their values, goals, and relationships with others. We all have choices in our lives as we strive to make our lives meaningful and purposeful. Sometimes we get stuck on this journey, but therapy can help to find a path forward. Although my therapy style is eclectic, I value the approaches of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and existential counseling.
My past work experience has been in a variety of settings which included a mental health clinic on a college campus, a university career center, and a private practice. In these settings, I have worked with people from diverse backgrounds and unique presenting concerns, which has helped me grow as a counselor. My passion for career counseling stems from my belief that it is important to find meaningful work that aligns with your goals and values.
I’m originally from the northeast, but recently moved to Austin with my fiancé and our new puppy. When I’m not working, you might find me swimming, exploring Austin’s hiking trails, and checking out the music and food scene that is unique to Austin.
It is my honor and privilege to work with clients at RCC Austin, and I look forward to meeting you!
