I am a perinatal family therapist here to help you feel supported, grounded, and confident as your family changes and grows.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Austin, TX

About My Clients

My clients are often empaths getting support strengthening their boundaries and instincts. I especially enjoy working with people who are becoming parents - whether deciding if/how to start a family, conceiving/adopting, currently pregnant/with someone who is, or recently added to your family. I want to help you feel confident in your decisions, so that you can create your unique family and life, without the external 'shoulds'. These transitions need extra support and I'm here to help you.

My Background and Approach

I provide a compassionate, judgement-free space to explore your desires and values. I help you hone in on your intuition and strengthen boundaries so that you can make the best decisions for you and your family. There is a lot of noise out there, especially when it comes to parenting, and it's easy to get knocked off our paths. We will work together to create healthy boundaries and build your strong village. Using an attachment lens, we can process and heal from trauma, create security and safety, and find balance. We might explore systemic reasons things feel off right now and find ways to create healthy boundaries to protect your physical, emotional, mental, & spiritual energies.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I truly believe love wins. Real change, like really real social transformation, happens when we can approach each decision and situation with love and compassion - for ourselves and others. This level of deep compassion comes from a grounding and confidence in the alignment of your values and actions. With this comes the ability to meet others where they are while feeling protected by your mental, emotional, and physical boundaries. When we can have hard conversations without feeling like either person is trying to change the other, we are less defensive and more open to hearing various perspectives. The openness - of heart and mind - is what creates the space for growth and change. I want to help you find this gentle strength.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
