I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Social Work in 1983 and completed my post-graduate work at Texas State University earning a Masters in Clinical Social Work in 2007 with honors. I have over 20 years experience working for various non-profit agencies as well as in hospital, hospice and school settings in the Central Texas area. I have enjoyed building my private practice in Buda-Kyle and being a part of this thriving community doing what I love–helping others to live life to its fullest potential.

I am a member of The National Association of Social Workers, American Counseling Association, American Art Therapy Association, Phi Alpha National Honor Society and The Student Health Advisory Council-Hays School District. I am an LMSW Supervisor and received certification from UT-Austin in 2012. I am a Clinical Trauma Professional certified in 2013. I am also a 200-RYT certified yoga teacher.

I am married with two children and enjoy trail running, yoga and spending time with my family and friends. I am a native Texan and have lived in the Plum Creek community since 1999.
