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:

Grief & Loss Support Group for Adults

The Grief & Loss Support Group is for those feeling lost, alone, or overwhelmed as they grieve the deaths of important people in their lives. The group may be helpful for people wanting to learn about the grieving process and how to cope with it, while supporting and being supported by individuals who have experienced similar losses.

The group is not for parents who have experienced the death of a child. This group is open to people from all backgrounds. A free interview is required to assess the mutual fit between potential members and the group.

Personal Exploration Group for Adults

The Personal Exploration Group is for those wanting to better understand themselves and their relationships with others. The group may be helpful for people with concerns about romantic, social, and family relationships, as well as issues like anxiety, low self-esteem, and depression.

The group may be appropriate for people wanting to supplement individual therapy or continue their growth after ending individual therapy. Members gain insight about themselves and their relationships by receiving and giving honest, supportive feedback, identifying problematic behaviors, and practicing new behaviors in the safe environment of the group.

This group is open to people from all backgrounds. A free interview is required to assess the mutual fit between potential members and the group.
