MORE ABOUT ME

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a Certificate in Developmental Disabilities and Human Services from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I completed my Masters in Social Work at Tulane University School of Social Work. ​

I have worked in a wide range of roles within the mental health world and have bounced around the US for much of my adult life. I am grateful to be setting some roots here in New Braunfels and connecting to this community. 

My focus is on helping clients find clarity and hope in the face of emotional turmoil. I believe that all clients already have everything they need and see our work as a process of helping bring more of that into the world. Life is hard, our systems adapt to our experiences to keep us safe in any way they can, and it is my honor to help folks better understand the way their system is uniquely set up so they can move into more authentic living. I attempt to bring my own humanity to our work. We'll laugh, we'll swear, we'll cry, and we'll get curious together along the way.

I am deeply human and a work in progress in my own right. I am not an expert in anyone's system but my own (and some days that's still questionable). I spend time outside of work taking care of my own temperamental-house-plant of nervous system and finding balance for my own parts. I can most often be found hanging out with my dogs outside somewhere enjoying a sunny day and a good podcast.
