The journey of coming home to the truest and highest part of ourselves can be filled with excitement, fear, hope, and ultimately freedom. I consider walking with people along the road to more authenticity and wholeness a sacred pilgrimage. I am awed by the courage of those who desire to live more fully by exploring the needs that are met by habitual patterns of thoughts and behaviors that do not serve them well. I consider it a privilege to compassionately partner with them during this discovery. It is love not fear that leads us towards peace, self acceptance and living in the light of reality. My desire is to foster a safe and accepting space that will allow room to explore and discover just how wonderfully and fearfully we are made.
I love adventure and my life has been full of it! After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin, I ventured to New York City where I lived for 3 years. I left NYC for graduate school in Clinical Social Work at the University of Texas at Austin. Upon graduation, I left Austin for Cape Town, South Africa where I lived for a year as a Rotary Foundation International Scholar.
While there, I attended The University of Cape Town. Truly, the journey of a lifetime. Washington DC was my next stop after marrying. In DC I worked at a Pastoral Care and Counseling Center and attended a church whose mission was the inner city. Through our volunteer work there, my husband and I came home to the reality that all people are connected and nurturing the bridge that connects us has the capacity to unify not divide. That discovery changed our lives.
After 4 years in DC, we moved to Austin where I worked for The University of Texas Counseling and Mental Health Center. My case load included counseling college students, staff and faculty.
Soon we found ourselves in San Antonio where I began my private practice. I saw a wide range of clients ranging from adolescents, adults, couples and families.
We now call Dallas home where The Center allows me to continue work that I love and feel called to.
