I focus on working with women who are learning how to live an independent lifestyle and be happy with life, whatever stage that might be. Much of this was formed from nearly two decades of agency experience combining a local non-profit for teenage girls, as well as counseling girls and their mothers involved in the prison system. I also have extensive training in perinatal mental health as well as experience supporting women and families navigating fertility and perinatal journeys. Additionally, I have a particular interest in working with inter-generational patterns and ancestral trauma. This background has helped to sustain a thriving practice since 2010. I help women and families get out of their heads and understand where they are in their situations, as well as help heal through their problems by focusing on their strengths and goals. In our work, I take a relational and at times existential approach in therapy coupled with gentle, loving humor. In today's world, many professional women do their best to balance "having it all" and struggle with their sense of independence and managing relationships. Ultimately, I support women in a kind, safe and confidential space. If this sounds like you, Austin Women's Counseling is here to help!
I am trained in providing video sessions, which are conducted through a fully HIPAA-secure tele-mental health platform from the comfort of your own space. I am happy to provide a superbill if your insurance plan covers out-of-network teletherapy. Available for Texas residents only. All sessions are virtual.
For those interested in managing trauma with a modality that assists traditional talk therapy, you may be interested in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I have basic training with advanced coursework in ongoing traumatic stress and natural/man made disasters, as well as perinatal mental health. If this might be of interest, please let me know and we can explore together in the assessment. For questions or to learn more about EMDR, click here.
