About Firefly Therapy Austin

At Firefly Therapy Austin, we are passionate about helping people find their joy, reconnect with their authentic selves, and create lives that feel luminous.

You may be wondering what “fireflies” have to do with therapy. Firefly Therapy Austin got its name because every Spring and Summer when fireflies are lighting up the darkness like twinkle lights flying around in nature, it reminds us that we can create our own light and joy in the midst of pain and darkness.

Have you ever experienced that warm glow emanating from your heart and gut? That deep knowing feeling that you’re going to be alright? Maybe it’s been a long time since you’ve felt that way, or maybe you’ve never felt that before.

Our team at Firefly Therapy Austin is committed to meeting you wherever you are on your path and guiding you with a variety of individualized treatment methods to help you get through stuck points, pain, trauma, and fear, and emerge with emotional freedom and inner peace.

For over 29 years I've been helping people in Austin experience freedom from emotional problems caused by trauma, addictions, anxiety, depression, difficult relationships and unresolved grief.

In private practice since 1994, as well as an approved supervisor by the Texas State Board of Professional Counselors, I am proud to be working with our exceptional team of therapists.

The Firefly Therapy Austin staff is hand-picked from the best of Austins counseling and social work graduates, and each has specialized experience, skills, and techniques.

The next step is to read through these bios to see who is a good fit for you, who you resonate with, or who has training or specialties that appeal to you.

I have been a counselor since 2012, and have enjoyed helping people of all walks of life. I am excited to expand beyond my own private practice to mentor and help develop other therapists while serving a wider population in our beautiful town of Austin, TX.

I am experienced in treating anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship, and attachment issues using Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Gottman Couples Counseling, and I am passionate about sharing these skills and techniques with our talented therapists to help their clients.
