I am a licensed psychologist in Austin, Texas who works with adolescents, young adults, as well as adult populations. I provide individual, group, and family therapy. I work with my clients to help them achieve a greater sense of awareness so that they may identify patterns and behaviors that interfere with living the life they want. I also strive to instill a sense of hope, as I think this an important part of the process.

My work centers on developing a safe and collaborative environment where clients feel comfortable discussing difficult aspects of their lives. While creating this type of setting is at the root of much of my clinical work, I also integrate theoretical approaches that help clients become more self-aware. I think it is through the process of developing awareness and insight that change can occur. I also believe in the importance of utilizing evidence-based behavioral approaches that can facilitate the change process.
