question & answer

 

what is radical about deep healing?

 

what are your training experiences?

My longing for personal healing and my commitment to the wellbeing of my clients led me to pursue extensive post-graduate training.  That means that I have a cohesive, scientifically-informed approach to healing.  ​What's most important is how comfortable you feel talking to me.

about me

i live in south austin with my husband of 12 years and a little tribe of animals.  

as a quarantine hobby, i recently started an instagram where i make vegan versions of bob's burgers.

I decided to become a therapist because I wanted to do work in service to others that also satisfied needs for learning and curiosity. Well, that's what I wrote on my graduate school application, anyway.  While that still rings true today, I now understand that I had other motivations.  Like every other person in a psychology class, I wanted to make sense of myself and I wanted to know if things could change for me. 

 

When I started grad school, those motivations were buried beneath protective parts of me who thought that healing others would be a way to heal myself.  Fortunately, as I worked through my own grief--first related to chronic pain then to my life-long feelings of depression and disconnection--I began to come into contact with my own story.  I realized that therapists don't really heal people. They create enough safety for people to find their own voice and find healing within themselves.  In her poem, The Journey, Mary Oliver writes, 

     There was a new voice

     which you slowly

     recognized as your own,

     that kept you company

     as you strode deeper and deeper

     into the world,

     determined to do

     the only thing you could do --

     determined to save

     the only life that you could save.

I believe that we all have a clear voice inside that knows exactly who we are and what we need to save our own lives.  I am here if you would like guidance and support on the journey to finding your clear voice.
