About

Psychotherapy can be one of the most valuable life experiences a person can have. Yet finding the right therapist may seem like an overwhelming task. I believe that establishing trust in the therapeutic relationship is critical before any meaningful or lasting change can result from a particular "technique." It is important to feel confident in your therapist's competency, compassion and character in order to build a safe, trusting relationship in which growth and change can occur. I hope that the personal statements made by therapists in this directory will help you find a good match for your particular needs.
For over 20 years I have worked with a diverse range of issues and people in Austin and New Orleans. In addition to treating depression and anxiety, I have extensive experience helping people work through traumatic life events such as childhood abuse, sudden loss, diagnosis of serious illness, or social rejection and isolation.
I offer individual, couple, family and group therapy. I also teach as an adjunct professor at Tulane School of Social Work and do contracted supervision for therapists who do not have advanced licensure. I authored the book, Sexual Abuse and the Culture of Catholicism; Routledge, 2007.

Myra Hidalgo's Groups

Interpersonal Therapy Group

As an adjunct to individual therapy, I offer a mixed gender and sexual orientation therapy group for clients seeking social support and interpersonal learning to enhance positive coping strategies, improve communication skills, build self-esteem, increase interpersonal effectiveness, and develop new patterns of intimacy in significant relationships. Intake and screening appointments are necessary to determine eligibility before joining the group. Currently open to existing clients only.
