I specialize in dissociative disorders, which is often what may be going on if you've had years of meds, therapy and mental health care that's just never really gotten you much relief.
I approach my life's work humbly, even reverently, with deep sensitivity for what's got you even coming to see someone like me in the first place. I get that, really I do. And I'd love to help. I fit best with people who are okay with ambiguity and can "let the questions breathe," as we work on whatever has brought us together.

I work well with adults who wish to deepen their relationships with primary partners, children, their family of origin, friends or colleagues. Many of my patients are seeking help with issues from early childhood, including trauma and child abuse. Others want to understand and function better in their marriages/partnerships. Some patients need to end their partnerships and I will work with them to do so in a collaborative manner. Adults in my practice may be coping with mood disorders, anxiety disorders, PTSD, personality disorders, dissociative disorders and/or addictions. Together, we work to create insight into these issues.

My training and experience has been primarily focused on attachment issues, PTSD and CPTSD, dissociative disorders, obsessive compulsive disorders, domestic violence, and healing from childhood abuse and neglect.
My name is Kina and I’m passionate about supporting people in becoming their most healthy and authentic selves. I’m a self-directed learner and a writer who loves to travel, be in nature and spend time with animals. I’m also someone who spent years in therapy as a client before becoming a therapist, and I ground my practice in my understanding of what it’s like to be on “both sides” of the therapeutic relationship.

The presence I bring into sessions comes from personal experience with traumatic memory/amnesia and spending 10+ years on the client side.
Do you often feel misunderstood? Have you been told to toughen up because you are "too sensitive"? Do you long to feel closer to others but feel overwhelmed by the task? Having the capacity for depth and complexity can be difficult to navigate in our competitive, linear-oriented, results-driven culture. Knowing and accepting yourself for simply "you" (not who others think you should be) is an important practice to cultivate and will help release toxic stress and shame, enabling you to connect more deeply with others.

I RETURN ALL CALLS. “If they would just understand me, we would have no problems” You honestly believe if you tried a little harder to help them understand, the problem would go away. While you anxiously replay the past and rehearse what to do differently next time, you’re slowing losing yourself. The only relief to the obsessive thoughts are moments of depression. I’m going to break it to you, hope of reconnection has trapped you in the downward spiral of a narcissistic or borderline relationship. The relationship problems will only change but never go away.

Adult life and relationships can be infected in insidious ways from abuse and neglect suffered during childhood. Managing your moods and emotions is often difficult. You can feel disconnected from your surroundings. Anxiety and depression can be easily triggered for reason you don't always understand. You may have trouble figuring out who you are. Emotions may be felt with overwhelming intensity, or they may be "numbed out". Your childhood memories may be overwhelmingly intense, or missing. All this interferes with relationships, career, whatever you feel you need for a happy, satisfying life.

Dissociative Disorders Therapists
Dissociative Disorders are conditions that involve the breakdown of memory. Dissociation is a mental process that produces a lack of connection in our thoughts, a separation of emotions, physical sensations, memories, actions or even our sense of identity. Most of us experience mild dissociation in our everyday lives. We call it daydreaming, getting lost in a movie or a book, or driving home on autopilot. These examples of dissociation are normal, and are a mild form of amnesia. Dissociation can become a disorder when it begins during a person's developmental years and becomes habitual and ingrained. If you're looking for help with dissociative disorders in Austin or for an Austin dissociative disorder therapist these professionals provide therapy for dissociative disorders. They include dissociative disorder therapists, dissociative disorder psychologists, dissociative disorder psychotherapists and dissociative disorder counselors. They can help with amnesia, memory problems, and loss of recall resulting from emotional trauma.
