I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing in Austin, Texas. I am a trauma informed psychotherapist using EMDR and mindfulness therapies to treat posttraumatic stress disorder and other trauma-related issues.

I am experienced in strengths-based interventions using clinical frameworks of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Structural Theory and Relational Theory.

I do significant work with military service members, veterans and military families (SMVF) in the areas of reintegration and mental health, with emphasis on trauma therapy. I also do specialized work with justice-involved SMVF and incarcerated veterans.

I specialize in LGBTQI+ issues, with particular emphasis on transgender health and gender-affirming therapy for children and adolescents.

I am bilingual (English / Spanish).
