Who am I?

I'm a therapist who goes to therapy.My passion is in empowering others to find abundance, as others have done for me.I value creativity, though I' a recovering perfectionist. Openness, authenticity, and warmth are some of my best traits.I love working with anxiety, family of origin wounds, and perfectionism.I know that the therapy relationship is a two-way street and I need to build trust with you to expect openness.We will be a good fit if you are willing to look inward, open to creative therapies, and know I don't have all the answers.I've lived in Austin for 20 years on and off. I'm a huge Texas Longhorns fan. I'm obsessed with trying new restaurants and would spend all my money on it if I could. I love my smol dog, Mac, and my husband. We are partially nomadic, chasing our love of the outdoors (glamping for me).

Do I need therapy?

Is there a voice in your head that reminds you of all your past mistakes?Does this voice tell you you're not good enough or worthy enough?Do you know the "right" things to do, but can't quite make yourself do them?Or do you feel like you're living in a situationship cycle you just can't break?Therapy can help with all these things and more. I've been there. I'm still there sometimes. Request a 15 minute consultation. Let's start this journey together.

Therapy FAQs

If you have more questions, please contact me!

  • What states do you work in? Available for clients only in Texas and Montana

  • What are your licenses? Montana LCPC #69948, Texas LPC-Associate #91637 Supervised by Julie James, LPC-S #69998

  • What is your fee? Fees

  • What if therapy is too expensive? First, ask yourself the question "Is it too expensive or is it just hard to invest in yourself?" If, "just hard to invest" then yes, therapy is expensive and worth it. This is an investment in YOU. If, "too expensive" look into superbills and sliding scale. If those don't work, I have other low-cost referrals that I can send you. If, "both", look at superbills, sliding scale, and ask about bi-weekly options.

  • What is a superbill? A superbill is a document you can submit to your insurance company to request reimbursement for your therapy. These are automatically created once per month in our online client portal. Each person's insurance plan is different, but depending on your ONN (Out-of-Network) benefits, your insurance may reimburse you a certain percentage of the cost. You will need to contact your insurance company for specifics.

  • What is sliding scale? Sliding scale means I offer a certain number of lower cost slots to those who need it. If you are a single parent, teacher, first responder, and/or a low income household, please reach out to see if I have spaces available.

  • What is the process of starting therapy? Click to learn more about my process.

  • What is a therapy session like? I do telehealth sessions. Usually we will start with a check-in of your week or follow up on anything from last session. We can talk about specific issues from the last week or work on processing bigger themes in your life. Some tools we may use are breathing techniques, sand tray work, identifying parts of self, and CBT principles.

  • What do you get out of working with me? A partner! Someone who is invested but still a third-party. You will also walk away with increased understanding of self and others, processed emotions, and change to your relationships.

  • What if we aren't a good fit? No problem! I have plenty of referral sources where we can find someone who is a GREAT fit for you. My number one goal is for you to get the care you deserve.

  • Are my problems bad enough to go to therapy? If something doesn't feel right, come in! Minimizing your experience doesn't help alleviate others' pain. Minimizing only increases yours.

  • What kind of training do you have? MA Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Marriage and Family Therapy Certified, Sand Tray Training Level 1

The Process

First, we start with a FREE 15 minute consultation. This phone call will give us the opportunity to see if we will be a good fit. You can share your goals for therapy and I can share my style of counseling.If we decide that we'd be a good fit, the next step is to schedule an initial session. I like to do an 80 minute initial session so we have plenty of time to go through your story and get to know one another.After that, I recommend coming in weekly (50 min session) for 4 weeks so we can make progress quickly.After 4 sessions, we can reassess session frequency based on your needs and your budget.
