BENEFITS OF THERAPY
Psychotherapy is a gift of self-care: a weekly opportunity to be your complete and whole self in a safe and welcoming space with someone who is fiercely advocating for your success. Therapy helps you learn to proactively address conflict, set boundaries, and better understand patterns of behavior.
Self-awareness and self-compassion help you assume positive intent towards yourself and others; consequently, this will broaden your perspective of others, learn to access all of your feelings, and empower you to build supportive relationships. Talking with a trained therapist offers opportunities for reflection and clarity which enrich your life. When you are more aware of your thoughts and feelings, you free yourself to manage them more deliberately.

A BIT ABOUT ME
I served high school students as an educator for fifteen years in Texas public schools, and coached soccer with athletes ranching in age from 3 to 22 years old from beginners to division I. After earning my masters of science in social work at the University of Texas at Austin in 2009, I worked as a social worker , in the ER at a level one and two trauma hospital, at Austin's first 24 hour mental health crisis hotline at Integral Care, as a program manager for Communities in Schools and have been working with individuals and couples part time in a private practice setting since 2018. I have also provided individual, group, and family therapy to high school students as a social services specialist in AISD.
Outside of Austin Therapy South I love time with my family, being outdoors, and soaking up all moments I can. I aim to offer my clients a well-rounded, authentic, and supportive psychotherapy relationship to empower them to love and accept themselves as they strive to live the most fulfilling lives they can imagine.
