Hi there!  

 

I’m glad your here! Whatever has landed you here has probably been really challenging. I’m so encouraged that you are taking the next steps to navigate whatever those difficulties are. My goal in our work together is to cultivate a warm, welcoming, free-of-judgment, and, most importantly, safe space. I wholeheartedly believe people have the innate ability to grow and heal when they are given the room to do so.   

 

As a marriage and family therapist, I view all the intersections of life through the lens of relationships. This includes relationships, such as those with our families, friends, and significant others, and also extends to connections with food, culture, beliefs, values, and our bodies. I take all of these factors into consideration to meet my clients where they are. We all experience life differently. 

 

I incorporate internal family systems (IFS), attachment-based techniques, psycho-education, behavior modification, and systemic methods to help achieve your unique therapeutic goals. I work with adolescents (12+), adults, families, and couples/relationships. While I see clients struggling through many mental health, relational challenges, and life adjustments, I focus on eating disorder/disordered eating support and recovery, negative body image, chronic dieting, and compulsive exercise. I also work well with teens and parents who are having difficulties through the pivotal developmental years of adolescence.

 

Prior to becoming a therapist, I earned my degree in nutrition. After graduating, I decided to switch gears and pursue my MA in marriage and family therapy. While obtaining my degree, I completed my clinical hours by working with adolescents, families, and couples/relationships in an outpatient setting. I began seeing clients at Austin Counseling and Nutrition in January 2022, which sprouted my passion for working with those with eating disorders/disordered eating, negative body image, chronic dieting, and compulsive exercise. 

 

I currently see clients in-person at our Lakeway location on Tuesdays, and at our Spicewood Springs location on Mondays and Fridays. I am available for virtual sessions on Wednesdays and Thursdays. If you feel that I would be a good fit for working with you, your teen, or your family, please reach out to me at (775) 934-5845 or hi@austincounselingnutrition.com to set up a free 15-minute consultation call. 

 

*Please do not let cost stop you from reaching out. I provide therapy support for folks who cannot afford my rate by offering sliding scale spots when available. If I do not have a sliding scale rate available, please consider working with one of our interns.
