"Along the road, we all developed temporary tools to solve the problems in our lives. Unfortunately, we often forgot to stop using those tools, and they became "permanent." In the end, using the wrong tool to solve a problem does not make one's life better, only worse. In therapy, I work with adolescents and adults to re-tool and get more of what they want out of life. Let's get started!"

"Based on my 25 years of experience, I usually recommend a holistic and objective assessment of the problems as part of the solution. These assessments include understanding, first and foremost, the needs of the individual. These can include anxiety, depression, ADHD, peer issues, family problems, stress, and many other things. I treasure the insight the individuals bring to the conversation with their questions, concerns, observations, and overall experiences. I bring these understandings to my therapy sessions and welcome those involved with the individual to lead the individual towards a more passionate, kind, fulfilling life."

Perhaps you've had enough of relationships that don't last, friendships falling apart. Maybe you're tired of putting others needs first, never considering your own.

"Counseling was once seen as something having to do with weakness. Now it used widely and routinely for gaining strength, new skills, making meaning out of one's life and living one's purpose. Living & loving fully and leading a life that matters has everything to do with finding the right mentors along the way for support and guidance in transforming vulnerability into strength. I help mamas, papas and adults who want proven skills to help themselves &/or their child succeed. And when families & individual adults experience ongoing stress, loss or trauma, having proven skills & tools is even more important--Help is here."

"Over the 13 years of working with a variety of individuals, one problem stands out. A common thread that connects them is their exposure to trauma. By definition, trauma is a "deeply distressing or disturbing experience." It is common to have strong emotions and a sense of disbelief in the days and weeks following a traumatic event. However, if not processed well, it may lead to depression, anxiety, and substance use. Tragically, the ripple effects of the suffering is felt by everyone around them. This is why I focus my practice on helping people struggling with the effects of trauma."

Does your mind circle around the same moments over and over again hoping it can find some resolution to a perceived past or future "mistake"?

EMDR Therapists
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy that helps clients cope with trauma, addictions, and phobias. During this treatment, the patient focuses on a specific thought, image, emotion, or sensation while simultaneously watching the therapist's finger or baton move in front of his or her eyes. The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the client is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation.

If you're looking for EMDR therapy in Austin or for an Austin EMDR therapist these professionals provide EMDR therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing and EMDR treatment. They include EMDR therapists, EMDR psychologists, EMDR psychotherapists, and EMDR counselors.
