Executive Director, Non-voting Board Member [email protected]

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor with a Bachelors in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin in Stevens Point and a Masters in Counseling Psychology from the University of West Alabama in Livingston. I have lived in Austin since November of 2005 and will likely never leave the wonderful state of Texas! My passion and life’s work has always been in advocating for and supporting those in need of mental health services. I will continue to lend my voice and strength to that cause here at CAC. I am moved and inspired by the amazing team I have the honor to work along side while doing so. I hope to see you (YES YOU) around Austin at the many fantastic fundraisers CAC will be having to ensure that every single individual, couple, and family that needs services with us is able to receive them!

When I’m not at CAC I can be found in North Austin with my extraordinary twin daughters doing all kinds of fun and creative things! In my free time I enjoy running, reading, movies and all things chocolate! I live my life as an adventure and find a reason to share a laugh and a smile every day!

I received my bachelor’s in psychology, with a minor in education, and my master’s in clinical counseling. I have spent the entirety of my practicum and academic internships at CAC, and I am also completing my postgraduate work here. The lessons learned, the support I have received, and the beautiful people I have met along my pre-grad and post-grad journey have inspired me to become part of the CAC staff.
Though my path through the mental health field started in 1990 with addiction recovery and then crisis stabilization/management, I have become grounded in mindfulness therapies with an interesting hint of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy thrown into the mix. Once my licensure is complete, I have interest in using my education minor to supervise interns, helping them find their path as others helped me find mine.
If you ever want to swing by and introduce yourself, you can find me at CAC working with clients to complete my licensure hours, setting up the next CAC Movie Night event, or tending to some minor IT issues, drawing on my education, experience and my hobbies to bring my whole self to the role. I look forward to meeting you!

Scheduler

At the foot of our beds sit two little gremlins: fear and apathy. Whereas fear tells us to stay at home because life is too scary, the other says “why bother?” The key to therapy is to overcome these two gremlins so we can show up to our own lives. This is where I come in—helping clients make those first steps. As both Scheduling and Reception at CAC I help clients feel welcomed home and synced up with the right therapist for them. You may hear me on the phone, or meet me at the front desk and if you do then please say hello!

As a former CAC therapist, when not at the front desk, I see clients in my own private practice setting earning hours under my supervisors and Professional Counselor Intern License. I hail from the early 2000’s Houston music scene and find my free time occupied by science fiction, cooking, and writing and performing my work.
