Life can be downright difficult at times, but there is no reason for you to struggle through these challenges alone.  If sometimes it feels like you are swimming against the current, with no raft in sight, I can help.  Because trust, comfort, and collaboration are so important in the client-counselor relationship, I encourage you to read through my site to ensure we are a good fit for one another.  

I have experience treating individuals, couples, families, and groups in both private practice and agency settings.  I am the co-founder of an Austin based group practice focused on evidence based counseling and continuing education. Before opening The Practice ATX, I served as Clinical Director of a major substance abuse treatment facility and facilitated family therapy workshops for families impacted by addiction. 

Prior to my career in counseling, I spent 6+ years running my own retail business and selling for a large high-tech company.  After years of feeling unsatisfied, I decided to pursue my passion for counseling.  I earned my Masters Degree in Counseling from St. Edward's University here in Austin and am now practicing as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy Associate (LMFT-A).

I strive to create a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship that instills hope, fosters growth, and provides the healing you seek and deserve.  I believe that the process of growth and healing looks different for everyone and do not take a "one-size-fits-all" approach to therapy.  Together we will develop a treatment plan to achieve your unique goals.
