I've been in Austin since 1993 and graduated from the UT School of Social Work in 1999. I live in south Austin and rarely go north of 40th Street without a darn good reason. ;) I approach my work from an attachment and somatic perspective. I'm a Level III candidate in the PACT Training Institute and am currently in the first year of the 3 year ISTDP Core Training. I recently learned about deliberate practice for therapists and want to incorporate more of that into my work.
