Since I am not contracted with any insurance providers, I am an out-of-network provider. I will be happy to provide you with receipts you may submit to your insurance company for possible out-of-network benefits.
In short, same approach, different starting point.
Some clients who come to see me have work on their mind – concerns like burnout, perfectionism, imposter syndrome, work life balance or a toxic work environment.
Other clients want to make the most of their lives outside of work. They want more satisfying relationships, clarity navigating complicated family dynamics, relief from grief or trauma, ways to cope with big feelings like anxiety, depression, loneliness or overwhelm.
I help them talk through what’s going on, what they want and what’s getting in the way. We work together so they can make meaningful change.
We are fortunate to have many skilled and talented therapists in our community. Clients often tell me that I “get” work problems in ways that others haven’t because I’ve been there, done that in my own career.
I offer individual and group therapy to clients in Austin and throughout Texas. I also offer clinical supervision for LMSWs in Texas working toward their LCSW licensure.
I am a seasoned, versatile therapist and draw from attachment based, trauma-informed approaches grounded in Modern Analytic theory. I’m also certified to offer Problem Solving Therapy and integrate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and mindfulness practices. Let’s talk about the treatment approaches that interest you to see if we may be a good fit.
I am a therapist with training and expertise that enables me to integrate coaching practices into our work.
The way I see it, therapy and coaching work beautifully together. Coaching provides best practices that can help us establish the frame for our work – the problems we’ll address, the goals we’ll work towards, how we’ll measure progress. Therapy can help make sure we’re not bypassing the important information thoughts and feelings are trying to tell us. It can also lead us towards meaningful ways to move beyond what’s been holding you back.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Texas. I am also licensed to provide clinical supervision to Licensed Master Social Workers (LMSWs) in the state of Texas who are working towards their full LCSW licensure.
My license and training allows me to assign diagnoses according to the current DSM criteria. Some clients benefit from knowing they “meet criteria” for a specific condition – it can feel grounding to know there’s a name for it and that others experience it.
If you’d like a receipt (sometimes called a superbill) to submit for possible insurance reimbursement, your insurance company will require that I include a diagnosis on it. We will discuss the diagnosis before it is included on any documentation including receipts.
My license and training does not allow me to prescribe medication. When clients have an interest in medication, we collaborate to understand how it might help them and what doctor or other prescribing practitioner might best support them to explore possibilities. I often consult with other providers (for example, psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners) to coordinate care and ensure clients are receiving an integrated approach to their wellbeing.
With a few exceptions, everything you say in therapy stays in therapy. You can read more about the reporting requirements of Licensed Clinical Social Workers in the state of Texas and circumstances that may necessitate me breaking confidentiality here.
