I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern (LPC-Intern) and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate (LMFT-A) supervised by Diana Walla, M.S., LPC-S, LMFT-S. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Advertising from the University of Texas at Austin, a certification in Paralegal Studies from Duke University, and a Master of Arts in Counseling from St. Edward’s University.
I completed my practicum at Seton Behavioral Health where I co-facilitated groups in the Intensive Outpatient Program. I concurrently completed a second practicum at Capital Area Counseling (CAC) where I treated children, families, and individuals presenting with social anxiety, perfectionism, phobias, challenges transitioning to adulthood, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, multicultural concerns, family challenges related to incarceration of a parent and divorce, mood disorders, personality disorders, and trauma and ritual abuse.
I have completed basic training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which is used to alleviate distress associated with traumatic memories. I have also completed training in the use of Eidetic Imagery. Prior to pursuing a career in counseling, I worked in the music and technology industries, and am passionate about helping creative individuals identify personal goals and priorities, build meaningful relationships, and find healthy and fulfilling ways to express themselves.
