Dr. David Zuniga, PLLC, PhD, MDIV, MA, Psychologist in Austin
I provide individual and couples counseling for issues such as depression, anxiety, grief, serious illnesses and healthcare decision-making, struggles with shame, and supporting gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people. Before earning a PhD in clinical psychology, my previous career was as a Zen/interfaith chaplain and healthcare administrator. Consequently, I have extensive experience supporting medical doctors and other healthcare professionals. I also enjoy supporting clients who struggle with spiritually-related concerns, career-related concerns, and wellness.
Most people struggle with change, relationships, and meaning. I've worked in healthcare and counseling for many years, and I'm amazed by the capacity to transform immense trauma and sadness. Everyone is unique. Therapy may result in changing one's thoughts and behaviors or conversely culminate in radical acceptance.
Unlike some therapists using short-term models, I prefer more long-term, mindfulness-based therapy seeking to facilitate changes on a deeper and lasting level. Research shows that therapy can make permanent changes but this often requires going beyond the short-term approach that is sometimes used.
