(He/Him/His) Aside from playing Dungeons and Dragons, reading the next story, and practicing guitar, I enjoy helping others work through life’s challenges. I am an Austin therapist who works collaboratively with people and I use the tools that I have acquired through my education and training to help self proclaimed geeks, gamers, nerds, and their families live a more rich and meaningful life.
Born and raised in Louisiana, I earned a Bachelor of Psychology degree from Southeastern Louisiana University and a Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Fl. At Nova, I worked with a wide range of clients stemming from different ages, backgrounds, and cultures.
Since moving to Central Texas, I have fallen in love with the music and culture of the area (even if the allergy seasons are rough). I like chilling at Mi Mundo in Round Rock and having a nice coffee walking around downtown Round Rock. I have also enjoyed exploring the different parts of the city from the busier downtown life to the serene parks that are scattered throughout the area. Each part has its own beauty to be taken in and be admired.
In my practice, I am Certified Geek Therapist and continue to learn more about therapy in the geek community everyday! I work from a collaborative, trauma focused perspective; meaning that I recognize and emphasize how one’s own experiences can shape their current well-being. Utilizing a relational neurobiology lens, we will work together to learn how your inner system reacts to different life events and, together, creating the value driven life you deserve.
