About Me

 

Hello! I’m Elaine

Licensed Professional Counselor

I’m a Vietnamese-American Feldenkrais teacher/practitioner in my 15th year of practice.

I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor and specialize in trauma survivors, multiculturalism, survivors of abuse and tragedy, PTSD, healthy relationships, career development, and chronic illness. I am the child of an immigrant war refugee and a drafted Vietnam vet. I recently met my family living in Vietnam and am working to learn the language (it’s hard!).

I was awarded a Communities in Schools Outstanding Volunteer Award for my work with LGBTQIA adolescents in the 2011-2012 academic year. I ran the only middle school group for LGBTQIA kids in the state of Texas for two years.

I am certified in the Tara Approach, an energy medicine system developed by Dr. Stephanie Mines.

I teach shamatha and tonglen meditation in the Karma Kagyu style of Tibetan Buddhism.

I was born in 1968 and am a Virgo with a Scorpio moon and five planets in the 12th house with sextiles into Neptune. Apparently this makes me a super spooky ultra powerful psychic healer. So I am told, anyway.

I make a mean posole in the New Mexican style, ride a Ducati Scrambler, and am a serious pistol and rifle shot who trains regularly at The Range Austin. The serious look in the photo on top of this page was caused by breaking in a set of real motorcycle leathers for the very first time. They’re very tight, and were giving me anxiety.

I truly enjoy collaborating with other professionals in presenting and teaching and am always delighted to present any topic from this website, either individually or in tandem with others.
