Carissa Cano, MA, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Austin
Are you looking for a space to talk freely without being judged? Do you tend to put others before your needs? Do you find yourself getting angry because others won't accept a boundary you set, then give in? Stuck in a cycle of being nice, followed by getting angry because your needs aren't being met, then shutting down? If this is you, then it's time to start taking care of yourself and explore new strategies on how to get want you want from others and in life. Therapy is about tapping into your inner strength, utilizing your insight and expanding your vision.
I believe in empowering my clients to trust their intuition. The collaborative process of cultivating insight involves a delicate balance of deep listening, constructive feedback, and awareness building. Integrating a whole person approach, my goal is to help you move toward positive change and greater balance in life.
In regards to relationship counseling, therapy will help the two of you communicate effectively, learn a new way to connect with one another and close any gap of distance to prevent loneliness and heal from past and present hurt.
