Thank you so much for doing this interview with us! What is your backstory?

I’m a psychotherapist, author of Express Yourself, a Teen Girls Guide to Speaking Up and Being Who You Are, speaker and just launched my jewelry line Rock Your Worth, intentional jewelry to shift the mindset.

I grew up in Seattle, WA and moved to Austin, TX at 13 years old, which was a major culture shock. I’ve grown to love Austin now, but that time of my life was difficult. The teen years are complicated — and it was hard to navigate them without guidance. I had a tough time adjusting, and, though my parents found several therapists, they turned out not to be a good fit for me. I needed and wanted someone who was “cool” like my older cousins, who would truly hear me. Unfortunately, at that time, that person didn’t exist in my world.

In college I struggled with low self-esteem and finally found the right therapist for me, one who understood who I was and what I needed. This motivated me to get my masters in psychology, start a practice, begin speaking, and essentially become the therapist I wished I had when I was younger.

One of my most profound experiences was working in an outpatient hospital for eating disorders — that’s when I began to see how to shift the mindset successfully.

As a therapist who mainly works with women and girls, I help clients reset their mindset and become more self-confident. That is what my book is about, and now, what my Rock Your Worth bracelet collection helps with. I wanted something visual that would radiate positive energy, to help you break-free from negative thinking patterns and build unstoppable confidence.
