Choosing a therapist can be hard.  

Here is a glimpse into who I am as a person.  I do believe this matters, as good, effective therapy hinges on the therapeutic relationship. 

 

Yes, I am a therapist.  I am also a mother, partner, friend, sister, daughter and lover of life.  I am passionate about being alive, family time, good food, music, community, beauty, nature, adventure, and experiencing the “little” and big moments of the journey.

 

I grew up in Spring Valley, NY, where I attended the Green Meadow Waldorf School.  My Waldorf education grounded me in a creative, independent, spiritual and conscious way of living. I have been passionate about holistic approaches to personal growth and wellbeing since young adulthood.  My winding path has led me through a colorful landscape of vocational and personal experiences.  

 

Prior to my training as a counselor, I worked in the film and television industry, in various roles.  I have also been fortunate enough to have traveled and lived in a number of states and countries worldwide.  These experiences abroad and around the U.S. have opened my eyes and heart to people of many different backgrounds.  Throughout my encounters with adventure, challenge, relationships and growth, my interest in the spiritual dimension of life has always been the compass directing my course.  My own experiences of pain, “dark nights of the soul”, therapy and an alternative healing journey inform my approach to this work. I also highly value a sense of humor, even in the darkest of moments, and believe that the best therapy involves a good laugh.

 

For the folks who want to know the details, I hold a Master of Arts in Counseling degree from St. Edward’s University in Austin, TX, as well as a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Wesleyan University, CT.  I have enjoyed working at Therapy Austin, Austin Counseling Center, Oak Hill Wellness Clinic, and Deep Eddy Psychotherapy.  I am currently in private practice, offering 100% teletherapy to Texas residents, until further notice.
