I have always been curious about the human condition and the mystery of life.  This led me to pursue a second career in 2007, receiving a Master’s degree in counseling psychology from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology.  Since that time, I have worked primarily with adults and couples in settings ranging from inpatient psychiatric units, to community mental health settings, to private clinical practice.  Today, I work primarily with adults in my Austin office.

I am currently engaged in an advanced study program related to Analytical Psychology and Jungian theory.  I am a voracious reader and my work and thinking are constantly evolving with influences from philosophy, literature, neuroscience, anthropology, and mythology, as well as music and cinema.  

I do not expect my clients to travel paths that I will not, and in that regard I am firmly committed to my continued personal growth and development.  I meet regularly with other therapists and psychoanalysts as I work to improve myself both professionally and personally.

I am a lover of nature and of animals, and I continue a part-time practice in my first career as a veterinarian.
