My name is Dr. R. Austin Heafey - I am a licensed clinical psychologist who works with children, adolescents, parents and families. While every client is unique, my fundamental aim remains the same: improve self-esteem, build self-confidence and enrich my patient's self-worth. When a person has faith in their abilities and feels comfortable with who they are, they are better able to engage with the world they live in, the family they belong to and the life they deserve to experience. Put simply, my objective is to improve my patient's quality of life.

I believe in an integral, post-modern approach to therapy that builds on the successes of conventional therapeutic methods and practices and incorporates understanding of trauma, social justice theory, somatics, attachment, neuro-diversity and more. I work with people of all ages. With children, I have focused on issues like emotional regulation, ADHD, and autism. With adults I work in a very somatic, relational way to address issues ranging from trauma to anxiety to concerns about the world.

I enjoy working with teens and adults, providing support around life transitions, identity issues, and creating and maintaining healthy family, peer, and romantic relationships. I help clients navigate feelings of ambivalence, self doubt, and anxiety, and together we explore new approaches when old methods of managing personal problems aren't working. I have clinical experience with non-traditionally structured families, and am familiar with the unique circumstances of formal and informal adoption and foster care arrangements, LGBTQ families, divorce, blended families, and adults who were adopted or fostered as children.

In my practice, I see children, adolescents and adults who are seeking help for a variety of reasons. Common areas of need include depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and relationship difficulties. With children, these concerns may express themselves through externalizing behaviors at school and/or at home. I believe that everyone has the right and the ability to achieve an engaged, balanced, satisfying life. My goal is to offer an open, non-judgmental, and safe therapeutic relationship so that personal growth and change can take place.

Parenting can be a deeply conflictual experience. Sometimes we agree with Bette Davis who said "If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent." Other times we identify with Anne Lamott's notion that "There really are places in the heart you don't even know exist until you love a child." The seemingly unpredictable alternation of positive and negative feelings that come with raising a family can be painful and bewildering, and our self-esteem as parents suffers most when it becomes difficult to access the good in our closest relationships.

My main goal with providing therapy is for you to become free from the fears and secrets that might have brought you in. Many of us feel tormented by our anxieties and catastrophic thinking, which inevitably interferes with our relationships and ability to be the person we wish. I work with children and adults who often feel impending doom or have had a major trauma, such as early abandonment or sexual abuse in their life. I also see couples who struggle with common goals and intimacy. I primarily use psychodynamic theory and play therapy (for children) in my work.
