I received my Master of Arts in Counseling from St. Edward’s University, graduating with Honors, and hold a Bachelor of Science from the University of Texas at Austin. I also have a Certification in Clinical Hypnosis through ASCH, and am a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga-Alliance, with specialized training in Integrative Yoga Therapy and Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy. In October of 2019 I became licensed as an LPC-Supervisor, with the goal of helping nurture new therapists to be highly effective clinicians and increase access to high quality psychotherapy. I have been counseling adults in a private practice setting since 2011, providing guidance through most common human experiences, including depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse in childhood, relationship problems, self-esteem issues, transition periods, identity crises, spiritual struggles, time-management difficulties, and separation/divorce. Over the years I have gradually cultivated a very intuitive and integrative way of working that allows me to guide people through deeply healing sessions, and to do so very efficiently.
Training is important, but my own life experiences are even more influential in my work. Following a painful life transition a few years ago, I experienced an astonishing series of events that can only be described as an intense spiritual awakening. While I am working on getting the details down in writing, the important thing to know if you are interested in working with me is that I approach therapeutic work as a deeply spiritual process, and I also use my intuitive abilities and sensitivities to energy as we work. As an intuitive empath, I can often sense where energy is stuck in your body; I use this awareness during session, guiding you to release energy that is no longer serving you, and always moving at a pace that feels comfortable for you. I combine my formal training with a very organically learned approach, using all these tools to support your highest good.
As a result of consciousness-shifting experiences (states of gnosis) I’ve had, certain universal truths will form the foundation of our sessions, including the reality that we are spiritual beings having a human experience in a body. Operating with this premise already in place saves a lot of time and allows me to do my best work. While I do not pressure clients into any specific belief system, I feel it is important that clients are open to spirituality in order to be a good fit for my practice. I’m passionate about my work and consider it an honor to guide people along their healing process; it is a joy to witness each person’s potential unfold.
