I am currently accepting LPC interns obtaining hours toward full LPC licensure. Spots are available beginning August 1, 2018.
WHAT I STRIVE TO OFFER YOU
I aim to offer the space and guidance to help you develop a strong sense of who you are, grow your clinical skills, and define the practice you want and the practitioner you want to become. I am invested in serving you as you become a confident, flexible, and grounded clinician. As your Supervisor you can expect that I will be responsive, attentive, interactive, and supportive.
As a Supervisor, I view my role in the following ways. I am a teacher and sounding board for clinical and ethical issues that arise in therapy. I am a mentor for the personal aspects of becoming a therapist, identifying and supporting your areas of growth and self care. And, I am a consultant to help navigate the business aspects needed to manifest your plan as a fully licensed therapist.
ABOUT MY PRACTICE AND APPROACH
My primary approach is through the lens of Attachment and IPNB. My work is highly informed by my training in Interpersonal Neurobiology, NARM, Somatic Experiencing, Gottman and trauma focused therapies such as EMDR. I see adults, couples, and specialize in working with adults of adoption. My areas of strength and focus include Grief and Loss, Attachment, Trauma (Developmental Trauma, Shock PTSD, and Complicated PTSD) Shame, Anxiety, Relationship Issues. I am a sex positive and all inclusive therapist.
Currently, my practice is designed to accommodate up to 5 interns to ensure one-on-one availability and attention.
Having built my business from the ground up and having worked in the corporate world, I offer practical guidance as to the ins and outs of building a business.
I earned my degree as a counselor at St. Edwards University. My therapeutic career started as a grief therapist for Austin’s Center for Grief and Loss and over the past 5 years, I have grown a thriving private practice in south Austin. I value the variety of experiences and backgrounds that people bring with them and strive to provide a non-judgemental and supportive environment that encourages inquiry and restores resilience. My work is attachment based and trauma informed. It incorporates both a top down (cognitive) and a bottom up (body oriented) approach. Specific modalities I have trained in include NARM (NueroAffective Relational Model), EMDR, SE, Gottman, and IPNB (Interpersonal Nuerobiology). In 2016, I completed my LPC supervisor training with Wingspan.
I push my growth edges and deepen my skills by attending trainings and I strive to strengthen my work by seeking out diverse voices and experiences. I will ask you to do the same and commit to at least one in-depth training of your choice while you are interning.

APPLICATION FOR SUPERVISION
Supervision is at least a 2 year relationship, and sometimes as long as 5 years. That’s a big commitment to enter into. As such, I encourage you to think deeply as to what you need and then interview numerous supervisors before making a decision.
