Deciding to take those initial first steps toward seeking help through psychotherapy can be challenging. Some initial concerns may include, "How will I know if the therapist is competent?" "What if they judge me?" "Will I feel comfortable telling them what I am really feeling and thinking?" These concerns are extremely common in trying to find the right therapist for you. The key phrase is "the right therapist for YOU..." Everyone is different with different needs. I encourage you to read about my experience and the services I provide in to see if I may be the right therapist for you.

For thirty years I've watched people in therapy surprise themselves with how they can make things better. Life challenges you with situations and feelings that seem insurmountable. Your usual ways of responding aren't working any longer. Sometimes you know exactly what would make you happier, but, for some reason, you don't do it. Together we will determine what needs to happen in order you to live more fully. I provide a safe space in which to explore this with warmth and humor.

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. 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.
