I am a Licensed Master Social Worker passionate about therapy that involves the mind, body, heart and spirit. Using a warm and relational approach, I welcome all of you into the room and aim to create a nonjudgmental space for your many parts to express themselves. I believe in the innate capacity of each individual to heal when we let the body’s wisdom guide us and approach what arises with curiosity and compassion. I see my role as your witness and ally in this process, supporting you with empathy, new tools, and insights about the brain and nervous system while you come to your own answers at your unique pace.

Under the supervision of Heather Davies, LCSW, I specialize in supporting people with anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, high neurological/emotional sensitivity, and chronic pain. My approach integrates various modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), mindfulness meditation and somatic psychotherapy. Together we will explore what best suits your needs and continually reevaluate our progress together.

In 2017, I received my Masters in Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin with a specialization in Integrative Behavioral Health. I have had the privilege of working with people in a variety of settings including outpatient medical clinics, in-home family therapy, an inpatient psychiatric hospital and an interdisciplinary program for people with chronic pain.

I am fluent and comfortable conducting therapy sessions in Spanish if this is your native language or preference. I am happy to speak with you for a free consultation to discover whether we may be a good fit to begin the therapeutic relationship.
