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.
