I consider my role as psychologist as one who strives to focus on the personal strengths, abilities, and vulnerabilities of a person through empathic support and optimism for positive change. To create a safe place where immediate issues or chronic problems and patterns can be identified and explored. To appreciate the whole person as a means to make sense of their experiences and behaviors.

Do you feel like you are stuck? Do you feel trapped, unable to move past painful experiences in your past? Do you feel mired in negative feelings in the present? Do you find yourself repeating the same destructive patterns over and over? You are not alone. Addressing these questions is the first step towards positive change and growth. I believe counseling is often more than seeking to feel better - it is a journey. It is a way to become your best self.

People are naturally resilient with the right support. Therapy facilitates the healing process by helping you deeply understand yourself, with compassion, so your presenting concerns can be effectively addressed. My approach varies to fit the style and presenting issues of each client. Typically, I take a holistic approach combining in-depth traditional talk therapy with more recent, empirically-validated and present-focused approaches. I sometimes act as a life coach, helping clients change behaviors and discern choices that lead toward the lives they envision. My predominant focus is guiding deeper exploration that results in real inner transformation, personal fulfillment, and learning to love yourself.

You're exhausted from riding the restrict/binge roller coaster, obsessing about food, or hating your body. Each new diet, lifestyle change, 30-day reset, and juice cleanse leaves you feeling more defeated than the last. Your negative thoughts and anxiety keep you from fully enjoying life. You want to stop fighting and make peace with your body. True well-being starts from within. If you are interested in making health-related changes in your life, research suggests that looking at your thought patterns is a great place to start.

I’m a psychotherapist that helps young adults recover from depression. Depression is a quagmire that may include alternating bouts of anger, irritability, sadness, lethargy, or anxiety. We may gravitate to certain behaviors to help us cope; working to exhaustion, over-consuming alcohol or drugs, swiping through the internet, or compulsive exercising or eating. We may have a vague, underlying belief that we deserve more than just a daily numbing.

I see therapy as a collaborative process between client and therapist, each with different areas of expertise. I believe the goal of therapy is not only to solve "problems" but to help clients grow and find balance and wholeness. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) , a method of therapy that numerous research studies have shown to be effective in the treatment of trauma. It has been shown to be as effective as cognitive behavioral therapy and often provides relief in fewer sessions.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Austin, this list of Teletherapyists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Austin listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

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.
