Before founding Digital Nomad Support, I established a successful private practice in Downtown Austin where I worked as a psychotherapist with adults and couples for 10 years. Before going into private practice, I worked in both Mexico and Texas in the field of Integrated Behavioral Health, which is jargon for a job where I worked together with primary care physicians and psychiatrists to bring therapy into medical settings. From this experience, I learned to be very comfortable working with medications and with other healing professionals—both alternative and mainstream.
My experiences in the medical world taught me both about the importance and limitations of integrating a medical perspective in my work and since then, I have developed an approach to therapy that works to establish wellness rather than eliminate illness. I see mental wellness as a lifelong process that requires integration of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. The quest to live a connected, healthy, nourishing, fulfilling and emotionally authentic life is, for me and my clients, the heart of mental wellness.
