I am unwaveringly hopeful and believe everyone is born with the extraordinary drive to heal and thrive. Yet things happen and we tend to cope the best way we know how which may not always be helpful in the long term. If you feel stuck, alone or unsure, you may benefit from professional support. Through a safe therapeutic relationship, it is possible to discover and align more with your innate wisdom which supports the amazing potential for you to create a thriving and exceptional life experience.
Due to the need for social distancing due to COVID-19, I offer confidential, secure online sessions through a HIPAA compliant platform. Online therapy is convenient, easy to use and only requires that you have stable internet service and a computer, mobile device or tablet.

“Every life has its challenge. Every heart has an answer,” according to HeartMath founder, Doc Childre. I wholeheartedly agree. I value and honor the life experience of each client, and work diligently with individuals, couples and families to discover the answers held within the innate wisdom of each client’s heart.
Collaboratively and with respect, openness, warmth and compassionate care, I meet you where you are and therapeutically support the exploration of your unique personal challenges. I support personal resiliency, self-discovery, self-empowerment and discernment to help you discover your innate wisdom and amazing ability to create a thriving and exceptional life experience.
At the intersection of science, psychology and spirituality, my integrative approach working with clients is relational, encouraging and unwaveringly hopeful.
My clinical experience includes working with a diverse population at Capital Area Counseling, couples counseling focusing on premarital, high conflict and infidelity at the Relationship Counseling Center of Austin as well as co-facilitating grief and loss groups for children and adults since 2011 at The Austin Center for Grief and Loss. As a certified HeartMath Coach, I help individuals learn simple but powerful and effective techniques to manage stress, improve performance and develop greater resiliency and confidence.
I have a wealth of life experience which includes a 30+ year professional business career, marriage, divorce, motherhood, grief and loss, parenting, co-parenting, blended families, estrangement, spiritual growth and development, life transitions, and identity growth and development and the discernment of meaning and purpose. I work especially well with individuals and couples that are negotiating life transitions, relationship challenges, parenting concerns, and seek personal enrichment.
No matter what you are experiencing, it would be my honor to support you in the discovery of greater possibilities. Let's connect by phone, email or the form below to discuss working together. I will respond as soon as possible. In an emergency please call 911 or the Crisis Hotline at 512 472- HELP (4357).
