"Great communication starts with a great connection. I have been working with individuals and couples since 2015, and I can help you move through and heal the hurt so you can get back to having a life of love and intimacy. It's really easy to fall into the trap of thinking that we are supposed to go it alone and having other people walking alongside us can feel vulnerable. Life is full of challenges; everything from parenting, to work stress, to finding the balance between work, life, and play. Things don't always need to be taken overly seriously, and sometimes the best treatment is finding something to laugh about.


Sometimes when our relationships break down, what we need is to heal on our own. Maybe you feel lonely and disconnected in your relationship, or maybe you struggle to see your own inner worth. Either way, asking for help can be hard. I'm here to be a support, a guide, and occasionally someone to drop a truth bomb or two on you.

I know what it's like to come back from a failed relationship. I can help you heal your relationship or I can help you recover from a broken one. Reach out and I will gladly walk with you and help your pain find its place!"

I may be a tad bit biased, but I believe therapy to be one of the most monumental and beneficial
experiences a person can be a part of. Therapy creates a safe and warm environment for one to
learn how to be compassionate towards their younger self, empower their current self, and also
fight for their future self. Because of this, therapy has long-lasting impacts on one's self-identity,
interpersonal relationships, cultural aspects, professional endeavors, and most importantly, your

ability to withstand adversity and grow through hardships.

I have had a variety of experiences working with adolescents (14+) and adults in different
clinical settings that included community-based, college settings, and higher levels of care such
as partial hospitalization. My specialties are eating disorders, trauma/grief, body image, anxiety,
life-transitions, and depression. The theoretical approach I utilize is through a trauma-informed
lens that blends the aspects of Narrative Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. With
Narrative Therapy, I develop a non-judgmental and safe space for you to be able to process,
deconstruct, and then rewrite your story through empowerment. With Dialectical Behavioral
Therapy, this is where you and I will work on developing m
indfulness based skills, distress
tolerance skills, and interpersonal effectiveness skills. I find these skills to be highly effective
and beneficial because it gives you tools that you can use to cope effectively and progressively

when navigating difficult situations.

I value creating a space where you can feel seen, heard, and accepted in a welcoming place. I
find environments that cultivate safety and encouragement promote the most healing and
empowerment. Together, we will identify values, build off personal strengths, process
effectively, develop coping skills, and create goals that are individualistic and necessary for your
growth. I truly look forward to meeting you, hearing your story, and being a part of your journey.

"Give me a lever long enough and a place to stand and I will move the earth."– Archimedes
I have years of experience working with adults from 18 and up primarily individually on a broad spectrum of issues and needs. My approach would be called eclectic with a strength and hope based perspective on human capacity for healing and change. Collaboration is a focus in the work I do with people and I hold as a priority, setting up a relationship with my clients that is a sacred space that belongs solely to them...a comfortable space where we can sift through the resources already present within and how to nurture what else may be needed for balance. I believe we all have a true self within and so therapy is not giving a client something they do not already possess but rather, an uncovering and refining of what is already there. Decision making and growth through life is possible when we have a chance to step back and evaluate with skilled, clear, and compassionate eyes how to proceed on our path.
My specialties combine over my years of experience and education to promote a dynamic and creative solution that honors all aspects of the person. I’m a mental health therapist with focus on how emotional regulation is connected with somatic practice, I’m a certified EMDR therapist and qigong/tai chi instructor, and have emphasis in my work in working with mood and substance use disorders. I am also certified in an approach called Spiritually Integrated Psychotherapy that emphasizes mindfulness as a resource that supports the efficacy of good mental health work. So from esteem building to confidence in the use of personal practice that addresses anxiety, depression, or direction in life to the treatment of trauma and anything in between, I look forward to a great working relationship together in the development of overall health and realization of your highest self.

Life seldom goes smoothly. Dealing with its ups and downs can be hard, throw in
a crisis or two and life can feel overwhelming. The stress of relationships, family, finances, school, and work can often reduce our ability to enjoy life. These stresses and experiences may leave us emotionally & physically drained and feeling helpless. 

Therapy is a collaborative endeavor that thrives in an honest and open space
free of judgment. I emphasize the importance of self-awareness as a tool for regaining power and recognizing patterns within yourself and your relationships. Moving toward doing more of what is working and less of what is not.

As a trauma informed therapist, I have extensive experience working with clients
in crisis, experiencing violence (verbal, emotional or physical) with family or
relationships and law enforcement secondary trauma, PTSD, and complex
PTSD. I utilize a variety of techniques including CBT, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, mindfulness and DBT to assist those experiencing anxiety, depression, grief & loss, and to address the challenges of ADHD and the development ofhealthy coping skills.

Specialties: Adults | Adolescents | Couples | LGBTQIA+ | LatinX | CBT | Mindfulness Therapy | Life Transitions | Crises | Self-esteem | Anxiety | Depression | Trauma | Social Justice & Advocacy | Substance Abuse

Originally from The Golden State, I now happily reside in Austin, Texas.  I received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a Minor in Sociology from the University of the Incarnate Word in 2012, a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from St. Mary’s University in 2015 and I am currently pursuing a Doctor of Philosophy in Counselor Education and Supervision.  In pursuing my education for more than a decade, I have been granted the opportunity to work in a wide range of settings to include several non-profit organizations, private practice, private school, within the correctional system and in substance abuse treatment facilities.  Because of these various experiences, my clientele has been extremely diverse- from children as young as 4 years old to adults over 90 years old. 

I am a passionate scholar-practitioner in the field of clinical mental health psychotherapy who divides my time between clinical practice and scholarly writing and research.  In my clinical practice, I deliver cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and other evidence based treatments. I find it gratifying to introduce clients to CBT.  I have had the privilege of witnessing dramatic transformations using CBT techniques in clients struggling with a wide range of emotional, behavioral and adjustment problems, crises, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, trauma, stress, addiction, transitional struggles and relationship issues.

I whole-heartedly believe in the power of positivity and the notion that each individual has the ability to create the life they desire.  We may not be able to control everything that life throws our way, but we can control how we respond to such situations by focusing on positive attitudes, thoughts and behaviors.  While everyone’s process is unique, we all have moments of self-doubt.  The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.  I am here to help you challenge those negative thoughts you have regarding your own abilities while providing a safe, compassionate environment.

The services I provide are authentic and genuine.  The relationships I have with my clients are very important to me as I aim for each and every one to feel understood, respected, supported, valued and empowered.  The process within the therapy I provide is highly collaborative.  I am not here to tell you what to do, but to offer as much guidance as you feel comfortable with as we figure things out together.

I am eager to connect with you while sharing my experience as you begin to address issues that will help you improve your quality of life and attain a greater sense of fulfillment.  In working with me you will be able to identify the negative thoughts, emotions and behaviors that stop you from living up to your full potential.  You will learn how to take control of situations instead of letting them control you in a way you may have never thought possible.  I am here to guide you towards a life of authenticity as you embrace the power of your own journey.

With the Kindest Regards,

Taking the first step to consider therapy can be exciting, nerve-wracking, and scary all at the same time. I like to establish a warm, genuine connection with my clients in order to cultivate a  sense of trust and safety when we meet. I assist clients in establishing goals and milestones they would like to meet in life and create a plan to help them get there. I believe that unresolved trauma and/or grief is often the reason we may feel hindered or stuck in life, and that by processing past hurts, losses, and traumas, we are more free to be the best versions of ourselves; our true selves. I believe through a lens of self-compassion and acceptance, we can begin to be more kind to ourselves and heal our critical inner voice. Finally, getting clear about our values will help guide our actions, which in turn, helps us to create a purposeful life based on what we believe to be meaningful- not necessarily what the world, society, or family tries to tell us "should be" important.

In my work with couples I utilize Gottman method. The first session we meet together to get an idea of what needs to be improved upon, what issues bring you to couple's therapy, and a general sense of how the interactions and communication are in the relationship. In the second session, we split our time with each partner for individual sessions and I continue my assessment on the pillars that research shows are most important to lasting relationships (the sound relationship house). In the third session, I share a detailed report assessing both your strengths and areas of growth as a couple so that we have a road map of goals to work towards in a tangible, productive way. Current and past clients often express they appreciate that Gottman method offers a structured plan and approach that helps them to start making positive changes in their relationship immediately.

I have a professional background working in K-12 education as a teacher, higher education as a residence hall director, and counseling in the non-profit sector and private practice before I opened New Vision Counseling in 2019. I have pursued my passion for couple's therapy and helping people process through trauma by receiving additional trainings in DBT, Gottman Method, trauma-informed care, and EMDR.  In my free time, I enjoy exploring nature with my two little dogs and discovering new coffee shops and bakeries.

I believe in the strengths perspective and utilize motivational interviewing with my clients to access the strengths they already have inside them to make lifelong change. I have worked with clients struggling with diverse mental health symptoms, trauma, substance use disorders, parenting concerns, and relationship issues.

As a trauma informed therapist, I have significant experience helping clients process and work through their trauma and develop healthy coping skills.

I am excited to be a part of your therapeutic journey and look forward to providing the space and support to help empower you to reach your goals.

I believe therapy is broad and ever changing, shaping to fit your needs as you move through life’s ups and downs. Some people utilize therapy to address an acute problem, while others see it more as a tool for maintenance, same as we view exercise. Regardless of the circumstances, I know therapy has a positive role to play for all. Whatever the road that brought you here, and your lived experiences that have uniquely crafted you, this is a place for you to find growth and relief.

Together we will create a safe space for you to unburden your mind and explore yourself more deeply. By utilizing various methods such as purposeful conversation, mindfulness, body-centered awareness, and client-led goal setting, we will find the balance you desire for your life. Therapeutic techniques such as CBT, motivational interviewing, and correction of cognitive distortions will be incorporated into sessions to address concerns covering all aspects of the human experience including stress and anxiety, anger management, grief and loss, trauma, and depression.

There are moments in life when we feel stressed, hopeless, lost, or overwhelmed. Feeling alone in our struggles can be so disheartening, and whether you’ve come to this place because life circumstances have shifted, the day-to-day suddenly feels too strenuous to manage, or you’re hurting in some way, I believe we all have unique strengths that can help us navigate these challenges. Seeking support through therapy is one way to foster those strengths, and when we are given a warm, safe, and trusting therapeutic space, we can often find harmony and solutions to these struggles.

Whether you are dealing with anxiety, depression, stress, shame, grief, life transitions, or relationship struggles, I am here to help you safely explore your past and learn how to build a more meaningful and values-rich life instead of constantly feeling the discomfort that “there’s something wrong.” Therapy is a collaborative process, so I strive to meet you where you are. I offer an empathetic, non judgemental, and sincere perspective to stay present with you as we gain insight into who you are and create goals that you want to achieve.

Everyone is different, so my work is informed by an integrative approach, drawing from mindfulness-based, psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and acceptance and commitment therapy practices. I am committed to social justice perspectives and acknowledge this requires self-work. Broader systems can have a significant impact on an individual's lived experience and mental health, and I aim to have each person feel heard, valued, and empowered. I look forward to meeting you!

Do you ever feel like your emotions are imbalanced, and you can't put your finger on why or how to manage them? Sometimes, when our feelings are unpredictable, it can lead to added stress, panic attacks, and personal reactions that may catch us off guard. Trauma, anxiety, and significant life changes, like a move or new job, can affect the way we respond in sensitive circumstances. You may want to discover the why, or you may just want to figure out a solution to regulate the turbulence and navigate the uncertainty.

My past experience in hospital intensive care has provided me with an understanding to help individuals and families in cases of both trauma and anxiety. I offer a strengths based, person centered environment so we can work together to create goals you want to achieve. Usually, you know what's best for you, and I'm here to offer the tools and support to find that.

Sometimes we all just need a safe space to talk where we don't feel judged and can reflect on our own thoughts. I am here to help you at your own pace and comfort. Please do not hesitate to reach out via phone or email when you feel ready.

I have several certifications in animal-assisted therapy and canine communication. In practice I mainly use a humanistic approach to counseling while incorporating animal assisted therapy as a tool. I believe in meeting the client where they are at, and that the client is the expert in their own lives. I know counseling can be intimidating that is why I love to promote a calm and trusting environment for my clients. I believe my therapy dog Brenda helps with this as well. Brenda and I look forward to meeting with you.
