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.

As an art therapist, I recognize how creativity can more accurately depict a person's inner world. Color, shape and line can help bring meaning to experiences that may be difficult to verbalize for people of any age, experiencing a wide variety of mental health concerns. Harnessing your creativity in therapy can help redirect energy in a productive way and the art making process provides a visual of your progress and serves as a testament to how much you've grown. As an art therapist and a counselor I seek to offer a place of peace and refuge where clients can begin to heal, grow and develop their voice.

The mind has a funny way of keeping us emotionally safe when we experience pain and hurt in our lives. At times we may do things that seem appropriate and true to what we feel, but only later do we often realize that our actions have not only hurt ourselves but also the ones we love. Oftentimes, have you felt that you just are going through the motions of your life and aren't able to have meaningful connections with those around you, but are unsure of how to change.

You feel like you don’t know enough about sex and you certainly don’t know how to solve this problem, even though you have tried.

Reaching out to a therapist for help can be an intimidating process and I strive to provide a safe, non-judgmental environment for adults, children, and teenagers, that makes talking about, and dealing with, deeply personal things less overwhelming. Many of the clients who work with me are struggling to have the kind of life they wish to have. Sometimes this is because of old behavior patterns that aren't working for them anymore, or symptoms or challenges they face because of past experiences that have made coping with current circumstances difficult.

Pain exists to make us pay attention. Trying desperately not to hurt, we compromise our integrity, our hearts and our sense of self, on some misguided mission to be invulnerable, to please, to care-take, or just to belong...Somewhere along the way, our vision of ourselves loses focus. Therapy can help create a new template for living. Research shows us that the brain can actually re-wire itself in the context of a secure relationship, developing new capacities for self-soothing, obtaining perspective, and being intimate. I believe that all suffering bears embedded gifts, if we look hard enough.

Play Therapy
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in Austin or for an Austin play therapist, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists and play counselors.
