About Me

Everyone deserves a journey of self-healing and self-discovery. In fact, allowing yourself to blossom is the avenue to experiencing self-love and meaningful connections with others.

I have worked in the field of mental health for over 12 years, but have been researching and seeking methods of healing since my early teens. I attended the University of California, San Diego, followed by Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified EFT Practitioner. I have resided in California, Colorado, New Jersey, and now reside in Austin, Texas.

I have experience assisting families, adolescents, and adults dealing with a range of issues including anxiety and mood disorders, trauma, addictions, end of life issues, and issues related to discrimination and marginalization. I am an experienced therapist, supervisor, and group facilitator in various settings. I also served as adjunct faculty at Naropa University, teaching courses on Transforming Addictions and Multicultural and Diversity Issues in Counseling.

I was always fascinated by the intersection of mind, body, spirit, and emotion, and have undoubtedly learned the power of transforming harmful mental and emotional patterns. As such, I found myself specializing in mindfulness based techniques and with foundations in unique spiritual perspectives. I am certified in the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), a powerful, but simple method that provides immediate relief of distress. When offered in guided sessions, EFT also works to unravel and shift unhealthy patterns that the conscious mind and talk therapy alone cannot access.

Your strengths lie in your weaknesses, and your power lies within your suffering. I will gently guide you through a journey where you can piece by piece, find balance and empowerment in your life.

I am passionate about being an innovator in the field of psychology and supporting work that brings forth real change. Transformation is possible, and we often face systems and ways of approaching mental health that make us feel stuck. I am devoted to sharing knowledge and information with others on how they can create breakthroughs in their own lives, no matter where they came from and who they are. My youtube channel "Keep the Clarity" is a space where I share lessons and experience in moving towards real change with others, including work with other counselors pertaining how to better our work with our clients.

I believe we are guided to our teachers/guides when we are ready. I found Muni when I was ready for a both grounded and spiritual therapist. Muni understands me on a core level and offers depth and reflections that help me to see things in new ways and grow. I am deeply grateful to betterhelp and to Muni for this beautiful journey inward . I highly recommend!!!

She is really sweet, insightful, and cares deeply for your mental health. She is funny and charming, all while holding nuggets of facts to back up what she has to say. I recommend.

Muni has changed my life. I truly feel like she understands me and is helping me discover parts of myself I’ve either not been ready to explore in the past or didn’t know were there at all. It’s a gift to have found her.
