Licensed Masters Social Worker

“Start where you are” is a guiding principle in my work and in my life.  My goal is to meet my clients in their present moment experience, incorporating compassion and gentleness into our sessions together.

As a long time yoga and meditation teacher, I understand the value of mindfulness and releasing thought patterns that are no longer necessary.  If you are someone whose mind races a million miles a minute and most of these thoughts are fearful, judgmental or worrisome, I can truly empathize.  I offer clients a space to feel more grounded and to develop skills to turn up the volume on self-compassion.

Together we will cultivate a therapeutic relationship where you can get quiet, still, and connected to yourself in a way that feels safe and supportive.  We will move at a pace that feels respectful of where you are in your life and develop a path together with the hope that you can decrease levels of anxiety and connect to your intuition.

I earned my MSSW from The University of Texas at Austin in 2011.  In addition to being a Licensed Social Worker, I have incorporated yoga teaching in therapeutic settings including a sober living house, schools, community outreach programs and have also led many workshops on self-care.   I am also a Licensed Massage Therapist with a lot of body-based knowledge and training. Our sessions may incorporate mindfulness and somatic techniques including meditation and gentle movement. I look forward to meeting with you!
