Perpetually erupting with inquiry, I find profound joy in seeing what is possible. By asking powerful questions, I elicit surprise and sometimes revelation. By actively listening, I cultivate trust. By responding creatively to life’s ‘bigness,’ I inspire transformative leaps in my clients.

Complimentary Chemistry Session

Psychotherapist Carl Jung is quoted as saying, “the meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.” I take this to heart in my practice, so I offer complimentary 20-minute sessions designed to see if we would be a good coaching match. Let’s talk!


60-Minute Session

Coaching commitments are for a minimum of 3 months with two 60-minute sessions per month. You will be charged $125 when you book/schedule a session.

“We are like islands in the sea, separate on the surface but connected in the deep.” ~William James

I believe that people are inherently creative, resourceful, and whole, and I am driven to facilitate powerful conversations in order to enrich the lives of my clients. I value vulnerability, play, humor, inquiry, engagement, and authenticity and am curious about the stories we tell that invariably shape and define our lives - tales constructed from our origins, from the present moment, from the possibilities represented by a sky’s horizon. Getting curious helps neutralize the power of the stories that are harmful and outdated and makes way for new ones that better suit, ones that fulfill and dazzle, ones that bring us home to ourselves.

After spending a few years in corporate training and human resources, I taught English for twelve years at a public high school just north of Austin. I am a therapist at Firefly Therapy Austin, a Licensed Master Social Worker, and a Co-Active coach who has advanced degrees in poetry and social work.

What can we create together?
