I grew up in the midwest, and moved to Austin 7 years ago. I love the weather, hiking outdoors, going to the lake, water skiing, rock climbing, walking our dog, and sitting on a patio with my spouse in the "winter" here. I have always been inquisitive by nature, and pursued my psychology degree in order to use my strength to assist others in their journey. I have experience working in private practice providing longer term care as well as in an inpatient psychiatric facility providing acute care.
There can be a variety of reasons to reach out and seek assistance, but I believe that it all comes down to the core desire to live to our highest potential. Maybe something happened and you are unable to manage on your own? Are you feeling stuck, sad, worried, or out of control? My goal is to provide a space that you can feel comfortable and safe to discuss these deeply personal experiences.
I utilize a holistic approach and believe it is necessary to find purpose, be physically active, eat a healthy diet, get quality sleep, have meaningful hobbies, and engage in relationships to find life balance. First, we will spend time collaborating in order to process the issues that have had the most impact on your life. I will ask questions that will encourage thought and awareness that extend beyond our sessions, in hopes that it will allow you to see your world in a new light.

My experience with Tiara and BetterHelp has been so beneficial for me. Tiara is a great listener, and great at remembering details. She asks questions that get me to think about things in a different way, helps me learn and understand new skills I can practice, and encourages me find solutions to my problems. I feel that I have grown so much with her help and guidance.
