Therapy provides an opportunity for personal growth and self-reflection by exploring your concerns in a safe environment. This exploration can provide the insight needed to identify and make conscientious decisions about things you can change, while coping with things you cannot. Along this journey, I am available to help you discover meaning in day-to-day life and your own answers to life’s bigger, more existential questions. I work to provide my clients with a strong relationship; one based on empathy, authenticity, respect, and bit of humor. I value the diversity of human identities, cultures, and experiences, and aim to make therapy relevant to your unique worldview.
I offer individual therapy to adults and children experiencing a range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and difficulty adjusting to unexpected challenges. In couple therapy, I aim to improve mutual and individual well-being by promoting respectful communication and understanding, with consideration of current problems and individual identities. I offer two groups for young adults: My interpersonal process group addresses a wide range of concerns surrounding our relationships with others. My grief and loss group promotes mutual support and coping skills for individuals in the midst of grieving the death of a loved one.
Born and raised in Texas, I moved to Austin in 2000, where I completed an associate’s degree at ACC and subsequently ran a recording studio. In 2007, I moved to Denton, where I gained experience working with adults with developmental disorders, preschool and elementary-aged children, and their parents. In 2013, I received a BA in Psychology from the University of North Texas with a Minor in Counseling. I returned to Austin to obtain a Master of Science in Social Work degree from the University of Texas and graduated in May 2016. In Austin, I have provided therapy at Maplewood Elementary School and the University of Texas Counseling and Mental Health Center. In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching TV, exploring Austin’s innumerable eateries, and spending time with my wife and delightfully challenging Chihuahuas.
I currently offer two ongoing groups:
