Contacting a therapist is a first courageous step toward: a) understanding yourself and making healthier choices; b) creating more loving relationships while handling conflict positively; and c) empowering yourself to work through symptoms (such as depression or anxiety) that keep you "stuck" – just waiting for your life to get going.
Are you at a crossroads in life? Maybe your job or relationship is not where it should be. Or are you new to the area or back on the dating market? I can help you navigate change to discover meaning and happiness in work and relationships. I start by honoring the strengths you already have, while you develop lost or hidden aspects of your self. My approach emphasizes the connections between your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being – including the value of a good sense of humor. I will collaborate with you to develop an individualized treatment plan.

Depression , fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives.

People come to see me for a variety of reasons. Many would like help coping with stress or feelings of anxiety/ depression or help with relationship challenges. At times, changing something about our situation can be helpful. Frequently, it is about greater self-acceptance. Emotions and behaviors can be influenced by factors outside of awareness. Therapy works best when it feels like a safe place to engage in a process of curious exploration.

I enjoy working primarily in the areas of depression , anxiety, life transitions, self-esteem, and relationship concerns.
Therapy provides the unique opportunity for you to adventure into and openly investigate your internal world. Emotional transformations can be akin to wading into the ocean or navigating a new trail in the forest. While these pursuits are exciting, they can also be intimidating, challenging, or frustrating at times. I view my role as your co-pilot; helping you to navigate what it is that brings you to therapy with the goal of unleashing your innate strengths and ability to overcome. I do so with a genuine curiosity and openness, integrating my training in several evidence-based treatments.

Throughout my work, it has become clear that the mind is amazing at convincing us of our worst fears and we can often turn to unhealthy coping mechanisms that may heighten already negative feelings. These experiences can be intense and opening up can bring its own set of challenges. It has been a real privilege to support people in navigating their emotional experiences relating to anxiety, depression , relationships, and trauma. I take a mindful approach to my practice and place significant emphasis on the relationship we build.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Austin. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
