Are you accepting new regular therapy clients?
Can I get on a waitlist?

I occasionally accept new individual clients as I have space in my practice, and I do not keep a waitlist. If you’re curious about working with me, please  reach out and briefly let me know what inspired you to get in touch.

What’s an “intensive”?

A therapeutic intensive is brief, focused therapy where we target a sticky symptom in your life, like living with a harsh inner critic, a specific traumatic incident or a difficult life transition. Intensive treatment usually consists of about 20 hours of therapy with longer, more frequent sessions. This model is often more supportive in making progress than weekly therapy as it creates a container for deeper focus and deeper work. Intensives can be conducted online or in person.

What are your rates? Do you take insurance?
Do you have a sliding scale?

I do not accept insurance. However, I am able to provide a superbill for possible insurance reimbursement. My sliding scale spots are permanently closed due to the long-term nature of certain therapeutic work.

Where are you located? Can we meet online?

I am a Senior Clinician at IPNB Psychotherapy of Austin located in South Austin at 4009 Banister Lane.  Some of my clients prefer in-person work only, while others connect with me online even if they live nearby. I am flexible and supportive in discovering what works best for you.

I see you specialize in trauma. Do you use EMDR?

For many therapists, “trauma therapy” is synonymous with EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). While EMDR has the potential for providing rapid relief, for some clients, it can feel overwhelming or limited. My specialized training in the neuroscience of trauma healing allows me to meet clients where they arrive in their capacity to be with and make sense of the impact of trauma on their lives and incorporate tools for targeted trauma reprocessing, including eye movement-based modalities, when it seems appropriate in your process.

What are your options for consultation?

I currently offer individual consultation. I can also support pairs or triads of therapists hoping to split the cost of a consultation. Please consider reaching out if you’re struggling with a client who seems stuck, curious about how to support a client with dissociation or neurodiversity or interested in how to integrate parts work into your current modalities – or other modalities into your parts work!
