That tightness in your chest, laying awake in your bed at night thinking about all the things your “should have” done, pacing the room, the worry if “am I good enough,” worrying if you forgot something, constantly thinking people are thinking negative things about you—these are not healthy thoughts and they most likely did not happen overnight. The goal for all my clients is to help alleviate these symptoms by connecting in a genuine and real way so that you feel heard, valued, and comfortable enough to address the root cause of these symptoms. It’s okay if you don’t know why they started either, we will figure it out together.

*NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME, CHECK BACK LATER* Despite your best efforts, life is unknowable - you can't always predict or be prepared for what comes your way. You might need help sorting out what's going on. As a therapist, I have learned that we are not alone in our struggles. People hurt together, and we also must heal together. Through our relationships and experiences, we can grow and rediscover what we thought was once lost. I want to help you down that path of discovery while using psychotherapeutic approaches such as attachment theory, AEDP, IFS, interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB), Somatic Experiencing, and EMDR.

As an art therapist, I recognize how creativity can more accurately depict a person's inner world. Color, shape and line can help bring meaning to experiences that may be difficult to verbalize for people of any age, experiencing a wide variety of mental health concerns. Harnessing your creativity in therapy can help redirect energy in a productive way and the art making process provides a visual of your progress and serves as a testament to how much you've grown. As an art therapist and a counselor I seek to offer a place of peace and refuge where clients can begin to heal, grow and develop their voice.

Ever since the pandemic has started, you just can't seem to get your eating under control. It was hard enough to try to manage your food and weight when life was "normal". But nothing is normal anymore. There's a constant hum of anxiety in the background. The days are beginning to blend together, and feelings of isolation and depression are starting to creep in. You find yourself turning to food for comfort...or restricting your intake to help you feel you have control over some aspect of your life. You just can't seem to stop, and it's beginning to scare you. You begin to wonder what will happen to your body during the pandemic.

Doesn't it seem ironic that the only constant in life is change? Our lives are ever changing and evolving; weathering away at some areas while creating and rebuilding others. The more we cling to what we know, to the past, and to our expectations of how things should look, the more we struggle to find peace in the moment of what actually is. Because of this belief I view acceptance and the discovery of meaning in life experiences as essential pieces to the overall puzzle that is our health and happiness.

I believe art is a language everyone once spoke fluently- an innate ability we all possess. As children, we use visual imagery as a way to understand and navigate our surroundings and this serves as our personal connection to the world. My long relationship to visual art and intimacy with various media informs the way I guide you toward your own personal uncovering and self-exploration. Art is the central force of our work together and we continue to remain open and curious about what story it may reveal.

Coping Skills Therapists
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, therapists in Austin can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in Austin or for an Austin coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Austin coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Austin are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Austin

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Austin you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Austin and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Austin or family therapy in Austin.
