How I Work
Everyone at some point comes to a place that we realize that “it’s not working”. That “it” is different for everyone. Maybe it is trying to manage unmanageable anxiety, depression, parenting, a relationship struggle or healing from abuse or a traumatic experience. Therapy is absolutely about having a safe place to get it all out. It is also a place to come to gain new perspectives and learn concrete tools and skills. The goal is to help you find ways to be a better you, so you can feel better about who you are.
You are the expert in you. Using an integrated theoretical approach in my practice I customize a treatment plan to each clients’ needs. Beginning from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy launching place, we’ll add pieces of a number of other theories and modalities to find a best fit for you. Some of these include Solution Focused, Mindfulness, Attachment and Strengths Based therapies. I hold to two very simple philosophies “we can do hard things” and “If I want things to be different, I have to do different things.”
After earning a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology & Communications from Brigham Young University I moved on to my Master’s degree in Social Work from University of Texas. (Hook’em) My husband and I have a son and twin daughters and have called Austin home since 1998. I grew up in the shadow of Mt. Rainier in Washington State and as a family we still head to the mountains every chance we get.
