That tightness in your chest, laying awake in your bed at night thinking about all the things your “should have” done, pacing the room, the worry if “am I good enough,” worrying if you forgot something, constantly thinking people are thinking negative things about you—these are not healthy thoughts and they most likely did not happen overnight. The goal for all my clients is to help alleviate these symptoms by connecting in a genuine and real way so that you feel heard, valued, and comfortable enough to address the root cause of these symptoms. It’s okay if you don’t know why they started either, we will figure it out together.

*NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME, CHECK BACK LATER* Despite your best efforts, life is unknowable - you can't always predict or be prepared for what comes your way. You might need help sorting out what's going on. As a therapist, I have learned that we are not alone in our struggles. People hurt together, and we also must heal together. Through our relationships and experiences, we can grow and rediscover what we thought was once lost. I want to help you down that path of discovery while using psychotherapeutic approaches such as attachment theory, AEDP, IFS, interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB), Somatic Experiencing, and EMDR.

Sometimes we feel stuck, with no motivation or energy, and it can be hard to find a way out. It can even feel like we’ll be there forever. Our mental state can then start affecting our physical health and making us lose connection with ourselves or our loved ones. If you’re experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, losses or big life changes, I can be of help.

Ever since the pandemic has started, you just can't seem to get your eating under control. It was hard enough to try to manage your food and weight when life was "normal". But nothing is normal anymore. There's a constant hum of anxiety in the background. The days are beginning to blend together, and feelings of isolation and depression are starting to creep in. You find yourself turning to food for comfort...or restricting your intake to help you feel you have control over some aspect of your life. You just can't seem to stop, and it's beginning to scare you. You begin to wonder what will happen to your body during the pandemic.

Doesn't it seem ironic that the only constant in life is change? Our lives are ever changing and evolving; weathering away at some areas while creating and rebuilding others. The more we cling to what we know, to the past, and to our expectations of how things should look, the more we struggle to find peace in the moment of what actually is. Because of this belief I view acceptance and the discovery of meaning in life experiences as essential pieces to the overall puzzle that is our health and happiness.

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 teletherapists 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.
