All of us seek out therapy for different reasons. Some of us have survived painful life experiences that we can't seem to get past. Others feel stuck in the cycle of anxiety or depression and have not found resolution. Some of us want to stop coping skills that we may have needed as a child but are still stuck. My job is to help resolve what is beneath the issues we struggle with. I want to help my clients find resolution, not relief. Clients describe me as down to earth, honest and non-judgmental.

I believe in client feedback for setting goals and evaluating whether therapy is working for them. It's not my goals or "success rate" that is important but what the client experiences. I value working with clients who know what a 'better life' will look like, will work on getting there, and will provide feedback about progress or resistence. Of course I'm there to provide help when stuck but I value clients to provide their feedback and be engaged in the therapeutic process.

‘Life is about relationships and people are relational beings. Therapy as relational recovery is important.’ -Ken Gergen. Relationships are both rewarding and hard. Healthy, long-term relationships move in a continuous cycle of rupture, repair, and reconciliation. Reconciliation can bring about greater intimacy and personal growth. When the cycle gets stuck, we need help. Change and growth happen in relationship with others.

The decision to begin psychotherapy is an important step towards personal growth and greater self-awareness. It is likely that you are experiencing some distress but also hopeful that by committing yourself to this process you will improve your mental health and overall satisfaction. An important part of succeeding in psychotherapy is your motivation level and a good match between you and your therapist. If you are experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship distress, or sexual intimacy issues, I recommend we arrange a brief phone interview so you can note how it feels to share these private matters with me.

One way or another, we have all been wounded by what has happened recently. We now look at our world, our assumptions and our future with a new uncertainty, which seems to make us all anxious and uncomfortable and disoriented. One effect of all this trauma and stress is to exacerbate and recreate old issues and blocks and difficulties inside us and with others. So this work may include unfinished problems we had thought we'd grown and developed past, but which need now to be re-addressed for healing again. Counseling is certainly one of the ways for us to rediscover and establish ourselves.

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.
