Everyone needs someone in their life to help validate their feelings and experiences. Sometimes we may feel depressed or anxious without knowing the reason. This is not uncommon and talking to a therapist can help. I use a holistic approach while providing a safe space with acceptance of who you are. I help my clients create goals for themselves and we work on them together. Past experiences include working at community mental health clinics, community colleges, and universities, as well as private practice.

In 2005, I began working in the mental health field by volunteering as a domestic violence advocate for a local women's shelter. My passion for helping people only grew from this experience.
I am a "Bird Nerd" and I love to bird watch.
I make a point to spend time outside and walk.
I love reading The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma by Bessel van der Kolk M.D. It describes what trauma is and how it changes the whole body. I find it fascinating.
PAWS Shelter of Central Texas is a no-kill shelter and it's where I adopted my two cats.
I have two cats that I adore. There are too many stories to choose from. I will say that Mitzie has a tendency to pop in and say hello during a session sometimes.
