"Therapy is a place to find your true self. It is a place to learn to leave behind judgement, frustration, worry, and unhappiness. These conditions drain personal resources and create separation. When relationships get bogged down by conflicting needs or demands the result is emotional isolation. Unrealistic expectations and obligations freeze one's ability to have choice. Relationships suffer from within and without. Gaining back happiness takes imagining change can be possible. My office provides a safe therapeutic environment where you can find the meaning missing in your life, your marriage, your relationships, your family and within your true self."

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Austin using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Austin are able to work with a wide range of issues.

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.
