CONNECT to the World

You are here because in one way or another you’re struggling with your life or relationships.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist who has worked with adults, children, families, and couples in Austin for over 2 decades.

I provide psychotherapy and am also available for public speaking or parent training.

If you work with me, I will work to both understand and challenge you.  I use compassion, directness, silence, humor, and listening as we begin and continue our work together. My primary theoretical framework guides me to help my clients develop a stronger, more cohesive sense of self as they find fulfillment and meaning in their lives. In doing so, I integrate  attachment, psychoanalytic, neurobiological, and CBT Theories.

I enjoy working with a broad range of people and issues, and my main areas of expertise include anxiety, adoption, depression, relationship struggles, trauma, family of origin issues, fertility-related issues, and sleep difficulties.  Additionally, I have completed an externship and core training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.
