I am a psychologist and mother, although other pursuits such as songwriting, meditation, and teaching are all important parts of what makes me, me. I helped start Deep Eddy Psychotherapy (alongside my sister Charlotte, husband Glenn, and both my parents), which gave me many opportunities to train and supervise budding therapists. Ten years ago I began leading a 6-month training group called “Minding the Heart” that is a deep-dive into experiential ways of working in therapy. I am drawn to experiential methods because I believe it is through contacting the deepest parts of ourselves–the ones that can only be contacted experientially–that the most profound transformation can occur.
I was introduced to this field through my parents who are also psychologists and themselves both deeply invested in the healing journey. What an impact it had on me to be surrounded by adults who were interested in the mind–not only my parents, but their rich community of friends and colleagues. Often their mentors would visit from out of town to train therapists in Austin–and it was during their shared dinners that I would sit and listen to the psychology talk, completely enthralled.
Needless to say I have wanted to be a psychologist since I can remember. And while I am still endlessly curious about the science of the mind–my deepest desire is to help people appreciate the beauty of the human mind. To feel reverence for our complexity, and a sympathetic understanding for why that complexity makes us vulnerable to suffering.
