Whether you’ve relocated here alone or with family, transitioning to a new home and a new city can be extremely stressful.

In 2013 my family moved abroad. We had two young children, a great job opportunity, and just enough guts or naivety to go for a big move. We moved to a country that I personally had never even visited! To say that moving is stressful is like saying that Texas is big. Talk about an understatement!! One of the things that I learned very quickly after we relocated was that making friends was going to be essential to our survival and happiness, but it seemed like I had to somehow be happy to make friends.

If you have just arrived in Austin, welcome. We are so glad you are here. If you are ready to make a place for yourself in this community, let me help you find your way.
