Clinical Social Worker in Austin, TX
Life is full of transistion and my experince in working with people across the lifespan has helped me understand the unique phases of transition people go through. I have seen clients through many major life experiences including loss, cancer, graduation, professional change, moves, births, fertility journeys, marriages, divorces and gender and identity transitions.
I am trained in Gottman Couples Method Level 1 and 2. I enjoy the dynamics of working with a couple and formulating tangible goals. In couples work, I strive to help each person feel heard, validated and empowered to show up as their best selves in the relationship.
I began my career in the hospice field, working with people as they neared end-of-life. For almost a decade I counseled patients and families in their anticipatory grief and after a death in their bereavement. Sitting with the dying, supporting caregivers, and holding space for those in mourning has been my training ground for supporting people in grief. Recently, I have also counseled employees and teams who are dealing with losses of colleagues due to COVID-19.
