Mahatma Gandhi once said, “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Following this belief, I have spent over two decades serving individuals and helping them overcome obstacles and live more satisfying lives by providing targeted counseling and wellness services.
I have a broad range of experience in working with individuals across the lifespan. I have worked with youth in Wilderness Therapy as well as leading support groups for family members of Alzheimer’s patients and everything in between. Prior to moving to Austin in 2015, I worked at an outpatient clinic in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am most comfortable working with individuals and their family members in the relaxed comfort of our office setting.
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in Individual, Group and Family Therapies, I have extensive experience in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness-based interventions.
I earned a Bachelor’s degree from Columbia International University in Religion and Philosophy, a second Bachelor’s degree from University of Utah in Sociology with a focus on Race, Class and Gender as well as Deviant Behaviors and a Master’s degree from University of Utah in Social Work.
One of my core beliefs is that balance is a key factor in life. To achieve my own balance, I lead a very active lifestyle while not at work through running, cycling and keeping up with my two young children.
