Stephanie Berry

Licensed Midwife
Clinical Herbalist
Women's Health Advocate
Mindset Junkie

Stephanie is the go-to guide for women’s health and pregnancy at Calyx. She's using herbal medicine and midwifery to change the world of health care for those of us sporting uteruses.  She's supported hundreds of women who chose to birth outside of hospitals.

Stephanie loves helping women heal from painful periods, bloating, and irrational eating every month, as well with simple herbal remedies and lifestyle hacks.

She realized how much power women hold when she birthed her first baby at home (with her foot on a cooler, Texas-style) with just the rock solid support of her partner. It led her to create a biz for women with women. 


Anneliese Wainwright

Clinical Hypnotist
Clinical Herbalist
Northern Tradition Völva

Registered Nurse


After nearly 20 years as a Registered Nurse, Anneliese (“Annee”) Wainwright has seen firsthand how herbs, hypnosis and non-ordinary states of consciousness can help clients gain insight to radically improve their physical and behavioral health. Annee particularly loves working with clients seeking support for (diagnosed or subjectively experienced) depression, anxiety, sleeplessness, self-limiting beliefs, and feelings of isolation and loneliness.

She is a member of the American Holistic Nurses Association and the International Association of Counselors and Therapists.

When she isn’t busy creating space at Calyx Wellness Studio for health, community and alchemy, she is exploring the mindfulness of crochet, dancing in the light of every full moon, celebrating through ritual the ancestral wisdom of nature and wrangling 2 children, 2 poodles and a workaholic partner into an ancient rattly Volvo for adventures amidst the flora and fauna of Texas.

Victoria Acebo - psychologist austin

Victoria Acebo


Victoria was born and raised in Miami, Florida by spicy Cuban parents.  She grew up spoiled by Floridian beaches and frequent trips to Disney and never fully embraced adulting over child-like curiosity.  

Victoria is a mom, an athlete, an Ivy Leaguer, a clinical psychologist, a member of the LGBT community and able to check numerous other boxes, when required.  However, most importantly, Victoria is a believer in the power of presence in a therapeutic setting. She has a genuine passion for interpersonal process groups and holding space for clients guided by her intuition and presence as they navigate their own paths through the challenges of relationships, family, transition and adulting with a capital A.

Victoria spends her free time with her two young children seeking more outlets for childhood wonder, compulsively listening to audio books while walking her enigmatic curly-haired chihuahua mutt and hiking greenbelts in search of treasure.

Taryn Altendorfer

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Taryn is a Licensed Acupuncturist, Diplomate of Oriental Medicine, and Ordained Minister. After completing her degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) she completed a two-year post-graduate clinical residency, where she provided instruction and supervision to beginner interns in the clinic. In this role she grew even more deeply as a practitioner because in the teacher role she further learned that it takes more than textbook knowledge and techniques to be successful; it is when knowledge and techniques are combined with treating genuinely and authentically from the Spirit that yield the best outcomes.

Prior to her studies in TCM, Taryn completed a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and went on to earn a Master of Science in Ministry with an emphasis in Family Systems Theory and Counseling. Taryn's education, training, work and life experience equip her to holistically help others: Mind, Body, and Spirit. Her practice philosophy includes compassion and attentiveness at the core of her treatments because she believes the client-practitioner relationship is a key component to optimize healing.

When not wearing her Acupuncturist hat, you may find Taryn out hiking or running trails, letting out her silly karaoke alter ego, or spending time doing animal caretaking - she believes that our pets teach us profound spiritual lessons that can help awaken us if we just pay attention. Beneath the surface she brings these positive spiritual teachings into her daily life and into her clinical practice.
