I am a licensed clinical social worker specializing in individual therapy. I maintain a private practice in Austin TX.

I specialize in work around trauma, anxiety, depression, relationships, life transitions, care-giving, inter-generational conflict, multicultural/cross-cultural issues, and adoption issues.

Treatment Approach

I believe the rapport that develops between therapist and client is key to an effective therapy. To this end, I am interactive and reflective in my approach and believe in sharing thoughts & insights with my clients. I provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges.

I utilize complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
