Is there someone to blame? Am I to blame? Am I not good enough?

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.!

* Currently full, email to be placed on Waitlist* I believe that every person has the ability to heal and that power comes from within. I work with individuals and families to help them find peace and strength. I have experience working with women, men and children who have experienced traumatic life events. Depression and anxiety - sadness and fear - are areas that I help clients gain power over symptoms to find peace within. A philosophy that I use to guide my approach is this: in life pain is inevitable, suffering, however, is not. If you are suffering know that help exists in the form of compassionate and caring counseling.

Pflugerville Counseling Center offers a wide range of counseling services to individuals, families, couples, and children/teens. Though each of us specializes in different areas, we all hold a belief that counseling is most helpful when it is about having a safe relationship to more fully explore, understand, and accept self and the choices we make. We believe that everyone has a story and the more we can own our stories, the more choice and control we have over writing the next chapters. We all love working with the brain/body/relationship connection we all hold within ourselves and between each other.
Mike Jenkins, MA, Certified Life Coach's ideal clients are men or women that want to challenge themselves and/or their relationships to move to the next step. Identify the obstacles that have held them back, develop their goals and future visions of themselves and their relationships and design a unique plan to achieve this. Change can be uncomfortable or even scary, so you need to have someone that’s been down their own journey of change and challenges. I have the life experience and education to be that someone.
Accepting new clients again. Intuition may have led you here not because you know exactly what is wrong, but because something doesn't feel right. I look forward to guiding you back to the health you seek. You are not broken or "damaged" by trauma, abuse, or relationship fracture, you have just lost your way. You know this because anxiety, depression and self doubt have shown up like a relentless storm threatening to capsize you. Sadly, this may even be at its worst within a relationship that should offer nurturing and growth but instead is toxic and painful. I can help you create your life worth living, and thrive in it.
I specialize in helping people think about how to improve their relationships, their emotional health, and their lives.

I would be happy to partner with you to help you think about how you would like to meet the challenges you are facing.
I believe we spend most of our days trying to get our God given needs met. I help you to understand what those needs are, and how to communicate them. As we explore your needs, you can discover when and how they developed. With greater self-understanding you can gain insight that is both healing and leads towards successful relationships and life experiences. If you currently struggle with pain, anger, fear, or anxiety, you will appreciate this therapeutic experience.
Please visit front page of website for appointments. The first session is a full hour intake. I'd be honored to work with you. I believe in joyful and authentic counseling relationships that are self-rewarding, and allowing of transformations on the client's schedule of healing.
