I work with LPC Associates obtaining hours toward full licensure. I will have an opening for a LPC Associate in April 2021 and anticipate two openings in Fall 2021.

APPLICATION FOR SUPERVISION

The relationship between you and your supervisor will last at least 18 months, and sometimes as long as 5 years. That’s a big commitment to enter into. As such, I invite you to think deeply as to what you need and to interview numerous supervisors before making a decision. To help you and I get started in our conversation regarding supervision, please fill out the form below.

ACCEPTING, INTERACTIVE, AND RESPONSIVE

I aim to offer the space and guidance to help you develop a strong sense of who you are as a clinician and business owner, grow and deepen your clinical skills, and define what you need to thrive. Having built my business from the ground up and having worked in the corporate world, I also offer practical guidance as to the ins and outs of building a private practice. I am invested supporting you as you become a confident, flexible, and grounded clinician.

I view my role to you as a teacher, mentor and consultant. As a teacher I am a sounding board and guide for clinical and ethical issues that arise in therapy; as a mentor I tend to the personal aspects of becoming a therapist, identifying and supporting your areas of growth and self care, and as a consultant I support and help navigate the business aspects needed to manifest your plan as a fully licensed therapist.

I’m always pushing my growth edges and deepening my skills by attending trainings and I strive to seek out diverse voices and experiences. I will challenge you to do the same and to participate in at least one major training during your time with me.

I value the variety of experiences and backgrounds that people bring with them and strive to provide a supportive environment that encourages inquiry and mastery.

THEORETICAL ORIENTATION

My work is attachment and somatically oriented. I primarily draw from NARM (NueroAffective Relational Model) and incorporate elements from my training in IPNB (Interpersonal Neurobiology), and trauma-focused therapies such as EMDR and Somatic Experiencing. My couples work draws from Gottman and attachment theory as well as applied improv (yup) and I work with poly and kink relationships.  I am a sex positive and all-inclusive therapist.

TRUSTED EXPERIENCE

I earned my masters degree in counseling from St. Edwards University and am a certified NARM Therapist. I gained my superior training with Wingspan in 2015. My therapeutic career started as a grief therapist for Austin’s Center for Grief and Loss and time with Paladin, a dual diagnosis outpatient treatment center. Over the past 9 years, I have grown a thriving private practice in south Austin and founded Resilience Austin.

My areas of expertise include grief and loss, attachment, childhood trauma and complex PTSD, adoption, shame, relationship issues, and specializes in working with adults of adoption.
