I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in children and families, individual, and couples therapy, and maintain a private practice in Austin Texas.
With extensive experience as a therapist, and specializing in family systems, EMDR, cognitive behavior and solution focused therapy, I am currently serving as a private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are depression, anxiety, ADHD, separation and divorce, career and family stress, addiction and high conflict families and couples.
In addition to being an established child, adolescent and family therapist, I have presented at conferences and to general audiences speaking on topics of child welfare, public policy and "Emptying Your Emotional Trashcan."
I am an interactive, solution-focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each person. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
