I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist living and working in the Austin area. As a teacher before, and now as a therapist, my experience in a variety of settings built an understanding of people as an interconnected system - the internal system of mind/body/spirit as well as the interconnectedness of family, society, and the larger web of life.
My work with parents, clinicians, and families is focused on safely recognizing what is, compassionately letting loose the parts that no longer serve, and consciously practicing a new way of being. I draw from interpersonal neurobiology, trauma research, mindfulness, yoga, and systems theory, among other ideas.
As a life long horsewoman, my introduction to Trauma- Focused Equine Assisted Psychotherapy offered a science-based foundation from which to integrate horses into my therapy work more holistically, and now, I rarely work out of a traditional office. I am certified through Natural Lifemanship as a clinician, equine professional, and trainer of the model.
You are always welcome to contact me to ask questions, learn more about what I do, or to set up a consultation or appointment. It is my great joy in life to get to know people - I hope to hear from you.
