I’m an old soul, a listener, and a life-long learner that values honesty and authenticity.
I’m a Texan, a dog mom, a wife and a feminist.
I’m a recovering perfectionist and a trauma survivor.
I’m a therapist, consultant, advocate, and writer.
I started on the path to become a therapist because I wanted to spend my life helping others. While I found that path, I also stumbled upon 10 years of finding healing for myself.
In the last decade, I have been exposed to parts of the mental health care system and wellness world that are broken and parts that have the power to truly heal. I came to believe in a compassionate approach to healing versus shaming and taming our “symptoms” not only because it aligned more with my values, but also because it showed me it was more effective.
I developed a passion for understanding trauma and how our bodies and minds navigate emotions. This helped me understand that the responses we have often been shamed for in society and in therapy actually make a lot of sense from a neurobiological and social perspective. We aren't broken, we are adaptive. We aren't weak, our minds are trying to protect us and they can learn to do so in other ways.
I started writing about my experiences and I fell in love with spreading the news about this work outside of the therapy session into conversations with other women, on social media, on podcasts, and in the media. Women began to connect with me from all over the world because they, too, were feeling the same way about the wellness world and my words were resonating.
I left the traditional counseling path that was laid out for me to live out the same values I help other women rediscover for themselves: authenticity, freedom, love over fear, empowerment and peace.
When I’m not working in my little telehealth office with my pups and chatting about all things women’s mental health, you can find me sipping coffee or cabernet in the Texas Hill Country likely tapping my foot to some live music or curled up in a weighted blanket by candlelight with my crew.
I’m so glad you found your way here. I’m excited that you, too, are looking for deeper ways of understanding yourself. You deserve it. We all do.
