I draw from a variety of therapeutic models such as client centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy.
As a trans guy and gender affirmative therapist, I know how scary it is to interact with providers who are poorly informed about issues facing the trans and nonbinary community. Having a clinician who is informed and affirmative can make a huge difference. I specialize in helping individuals navigate their gender journey and provide support to the LGBTQIA+ community. Since we are more than our gender or sexuality, I also work with a variety of other issues such as depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, general life transitions, self esteem, assertiveness and boundary setting, to name a few.

I'm trained in and work from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy ( DBT ), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) approaches.
Sometimes our lives get to a point where we're just surviving, rather than thriving. In survival mode, we cope the best we can - this may mean using disordered eating behaviors, self-harm, substance use, self-criticizing inner talk, or self-destruction. I'm here to help guide you out of survival mode and into your best life. In therapy, we'll explore how you're surviving and how you can thrive. We'll identify changes you want and I will offer suggestions to help you create these changes. We will balance this change with lots of self-compassion.

DBT is short for Dialectical Behavior Therapy. This is a specialized type of therapy that requires intensive post-graduate training by the therapists who offer it. Dialectical Behavior Therapy is recognized as an evidence-based practice by the American Psychiatric Association. DBT is an effective treatment for helping people to manage the intensity of their emotions and impulsive behavioral patterns that are disrupting the quality of their daily lives. What DBT does best is that it teaches skills that are not confined to a clinician's office. These skills generalize to every aspect of your world.

I work with ages 18 and up and specialize in helping my clients develop healthy coping skills to handle anxiety and depression by using a combination of positive psychology, EMDR, cognitive behavior therapy, DBT , or Biblical counseling.
SUPERVISION FOR LPC-A AND THERAPY FOR AGES 18 AND UP: Seeking a therapist can be an awkward process. It is important to me that you feel welcome, comfortable and safe every time you enter your therapy session. I believe in helping you to find joy in tough times as well as in good, and in creating an environment for you to process your thoughts and feelings without judgment. Laughter can bring healing, and therapy does not have to focus just on the pain. Learning to notice the good in each day can change our mindsets to heal from the pain and refresh our spirits. Sessions can be creativity and even outside in nature.

As Viktor Frankl said, "When we are no longer able to change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves."

With a non-judgmental approach, I help guide my clients to discover their inner strength so that they can remove the obstacles hindering them from living a vibrant life. I strongly believe in the power of the collaborative process between therapist and client and look forward to supporting you in your journey.

I am skilled in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy as well as knowledgeable in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
Being a teenager can be challenging, especially during a pandemic. Being isolated from friends, spending more time at home and going back to school are just a few stressors. I have learned through my own personal experiences, what it looks like to listen to a persons issues, needs and goals. I have experience both in my professional career as well as through my own mental health journey what it means to be a person who actively listens. I understand there are times when insight is needed but there is also value in having someone simply listen.

Dialectical (DBT) Therapists
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is the treatment most closely associated with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Therapists practice DBT in both individual and group sessions. The therapy combines elements of CBT to help with regulating emotion through distress tolerance and mindfulness. The goal of Dialectical Behavior Therapy is to alleviate the intense emotional pain associated with BPD. Its core assumption is that change and acceptance are intertwined. We typically think of our efforts to change things as emerging out of non-acceptance. We either decide to accept things as they are or we seek to change: through DBT it's not a case of change or acceptance, but resolving the conflicts to allow for self-acceptance and constructive change.

If you're looking for DBT therapy in Austin or for an Austin DBT therapist these professionals provide dialectical behavior therapy, DBT group therapy, DBT therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy (which is a common misspelling) and dialectical therapy. They provide dialectical counseling, DBT counseling in Austin and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counseling.
