Austin Psychotherapist

Holly was born in Texas and raised in Hong Kong. She also lived in Taiwan and India. Her experiences outside of the U.S. have given her an appreciation for the richness of culture. Her strengths-based approach, accompanied by warmth and compassion, enable her to create a safe space for clients to share their experiences and challenges. Holly believes in letting the client be the expert in their life and walking alongside them collaboratively as they achieve their goals for growth, healing, and the highest quality of life possible.

In her free time, Holly enjoys being in nature, hiking, gardening, working out, mindfulness – living each moment in the present and spending time with family and friends. Caring for the mind, body, and spirit is the key to wellness and something she strives to practice every day.

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” — Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Holly joined Pondworks Psychiatry & Psychotherapy in June 2022.
