What’s important is our relationship , that you can be seen for who you really are beneath the surface, and not feel judged.
*I offer a free, 30-minute consultation* Are you feeling off or not quite yourself? Maybe you function well on the outside but inside you feel anxious, depressed, or disconnected. Maybe you're struggling with existential concerns--meaninglessness, death anxiety, feeling lost, or ultimately alone. I have found that the most uplifting and healing moments in life occur when we are completely open and exposed to another person and then accepted for who we are. In my practice, I value my clients whole-heartedly and emphasize your autonomy and personal choice. You are the expert on your own life.

I am skilled with trauma work, loss, existential concerns, and relationship issues .
Not sure whether you need to figure out the meaning of life or clean your house...and feeling overwhelmed by both? I work from an existential perspective, but one that seeks to help my clients find pragmatic tools and a path forward through issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, and addiction. Many people come to me feeling hollow, disconnected, and not sure how things could getter. But there is hope in seeking help. Together we can deconstruct the patterns and cycles that keep you stuck. I know how to guide you through and keep you accountable to the process of growth.

Hi, I'm the clinical director at Austin Integrative Counseling and Training Center. You can learn about me and the group through our website at: inaustincounseling.com. In short, I've been practicing for more than 26 years and I am as dedicated to the art of therapy as when I started. Relationships are the foundation of good health and sense of well-being -- whether the relationship is with others or with yourself. Sometimes we need to start with the relationship with ourselves, sometimes we can go straight to the relationships with others. Either way, I'm here to help you find your way to what your are wanting in life

Counseling = a safe space to share, feel, think, ponder problems, grieve, hope, brainstorm solutions, practice healthy habits, and heal in mind-body-spirit. If you think you are--or even might be--open to positive change, EMAIL (DrDanaDoerksen@ gmail.com). For 20+ years, I've had the honor of walking WITH people in healing through the counseling relationship . I am empathetic and engaged in supporting clients as they process ups-&-downs and pursue their goals. I am confident about having expertise but definitely don't know all the answers. I enjoy learning from clients and deeply value clients' wisdom-- YOUR perspective for growth!

I love what I do and I would be honored to help guide you towards your more ideal and healthy relationship .
Does it feel as though you and your partner are worlds apart? Do you remember a time when you were both so in tune with one another, and you wonder how you got here? Does the idea of getting back to that place seem like such a daunting undertaking you wonder if it's even possible? I've worked with countless couples who have answered "yes" to each of these questions and are now living out the relationships they always wanted. This is a possibility for you too, if you're both willing to do the work to get there.

Are you feeling overwhelmed, stuck, or anxious in your life or relationship ? My understanding is that life involves all of who we are - the interplay between mind, emotions, body, and spirit. If something feels out of balance or lacking in your life, causing you anxiety, depression, anger, self-doubt, confusion, or a feeling of things being out of control, then my approach to counseling can help. I have found that increasing one's self awareness and self acceptance are the building blocks of any change process, and I will work with you to honor your process while identifying your preferred direction for positive change.

I have worked with individuals and couples contending with depression, anxiety, anger, mood instability, substance abuse, finding purpose and meaning, grief and loss, low self-esteem, and relationship dynamics with partners, friends, family and coworkers.
Most of us are suffering because no one ever taught us that we have a choice not to. I believe that we should have the freedom to develop as authentic human beings. Therapy assists in this development by providing insight into your emotions, thoughts and behaviors. I would like for you to use your experiences from our sessions and incorporate them into your own life allowing for you to find greater clarity in the actions you take. My intention is for you to feel safe with me in our sessions so that you can get the most out of our time together during this process.

Self-acceptance and self-love are fundamentally difficult, and universally important. I believe your sub-conscious self and your higher self hold the keys to your truth and your growth. My job is to help you develop a better, more trusting and more loving relationship with those parts of you. Relationships with loved ones, coworkers or others can also be challenged by these issues of self-acceptance and self-love, in yourself or the person you're relating to. Whether you are working on yourself or your relationships, therapy can help.

I primarily utilize relational, psychodynamic, attachment-based, and existential approaches to therapy, but additionally bring in an eclectic variety of approaches including mindfulness, neuroscience, internal family systems, eco-therapy, play therapy, and more, striving to tailor each relationship to the unique needs and wants of those I work with.
Struggle is a part of life, but our struggles can often make life feel overwhelming, stifling, or even meaningless. It’s easy to feel trapped in patterns of being and relating that don’t make sense, that feel like they’re “not the real me.” Whether your goal is healing from traumas, improving your relationships, addressing mental health or relational struggles, or striving for a deeper and more meaningful understanding of life and yourself, I believe that therapy can be an invaluable tool for exploration, healing, and growth.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for an Austin relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Austin.
