I received my BA from Swarthmore College and my Masters Degree from Smith College School for Social Work. Since then I have been providing individual, group, and family psychotherapy. I am licensed in the state of Texas. I have worked in clinics, schools, residential facilities and hospitals in Austin, Boston, and San Francisco. I am currently in private practice in Austin.
I work with adults, adolescents and children using a collaborative, psychodynamic perspective to help clients experience relief from their symptoms. I am able to draw upon cognitive behavioral techniques to supplement my psychodynamic approach as needed. I have been trained in insight-oriented, strength-based work and draw upon many theoretical orientations. I actively use the therapeutic relationship to help further the treatment.
I am an active member of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW), the Austin Society for Psychoanalytic Psychologists (ASPP) and the Austin Group Psychotherapy Society (AGPS). I participate in ongoing supervision and consultation and believe in the importance of professional support in order to provide thoughtful and informed treatment to my clients.
