Creating a safe therapeutic space to empower you is what I offer you at RCC Austin. Working together, I encourage you to become curious about your life story, and the relationships that may be preventing you from being the person you want to be, and seeking the life you want to have. Because you know yourself best, I believe in using a person-centered, collaborative approach to explore the issues that may be preventing you from resolving your challenges and reaching your potential.
I am passionate about helping adults, couples, and seniors heal and grow from trauma, substance use, injured relationships, adoption issues, grief, and/or life transitions. I draw from an integrated psychotherapeutic toolbox based in family systems, including narrative and attachment approaches, and neurobiology. We all came from families and have attachments that have played major roles in our life stories. Research is now allowing us to see and learn how the brain plays a major role in all of these throughout our life stages.
I am an EMDR-trained therapist and believe in this highly effective and researched evidence-based protocol to help process trauma, substance use, and other mental health issues. I am also Gottman Level I trained. The Gottman protocol is one of the most highly researched and effective modalities for helping couples create healthy and meaningful relationships.
I bring a wealth of life experience to my work including my own trauma of being a teenage birth mother, being a person with thirty-three continuous years in recovery from substance use, and experiencing the loss of friends and family members to traumatic accidents, natural deaths, substance use, and suicides. My previous careers in the horticulture industry and as a Licensed Massage Therapist also influence my work. I believe nature and safe healing touch can play important roles in our lives.
I earned my undergraduate degree in Organizational Communication from St. Edward’s University. I then felt a strong calling to become a Licensed Professional Counselor and Marriage and Family Therapist and earned the Master of Arts in Counseling from St. Edward’s.
I believe being a psychotherapist is my life calling and I feel I am home and at peace in the therapeutic space. I would appreciate the opportunity and consider it an honor and privilege to welcome you into this safe space at the Relationship Counseling Center of Austin.
