People seek therapy for many reasons. A difficult struggle may open the door to beginning or a desire to strengthen and support a meaningful area of life. I specialize in helping people understand and make progress with:
Stress and Anxiety
Health and Body
These sessions are grounded in a combination of developmental psychology, attachment theory and psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
I currently have openings for individual therapy and for group therapy. Many people I work with decide to add group therapy after some period of time in individual therapy, and often benefit from the social interaction that is a natural part of being in a group. It provides support and helps further develop interpersonal skills for the groups we live in, such as friends, family and work.
If you are curious to learn more about the experience of group therapy, consider viewing the video below for a new TV series about being in group.
I've practiced psychotherapy for over 20 years in private practice and community settings, including the University of Texas Counseling and Mental Health Center and Hospice Austin. My professional education includes training at the Center for Group Studies in New York. Prior to becoming a psychotherapist, I worked in international aid and human services in Asia, and in environmental public policy with the U.S. Congress and the Texas House of Representatives.
