Examples of issues I work with: developing a healthy relationship with your body, revisiting grief that may arise in this time, emotional overwhelm, navigating pregnancy as a survivor of trauma or following a traumatic birth experience.
I provide clients support and guidance to move through life transitions. I specialize in counseling women and couples during the pregnancy and postpartum period. This time of profound change and often uncertainty calls for special attention to women's emotional and mental health. My goal is to help facilitate this adjustment by addressing your unique needs.

I specialize in working with adults with relationship conflict, trauma, and life transitions such as becoming a parent, loss of relationship , or relocating.
Are you having conflicts in your relationships? Does past trauma prevent you from living a full life or having healthy/secure relationships? Are you a new mom and struggling to feel connected to your baby, and feel the societal pressure that this should be the most joyous time of your life? If you answered yes, we sound like we would work well together. I am committed to providing a nurturing, emotionally focused, and holistic approach to therapy. I work with people on developing self-compassion and strength to process emotions, and to become aware of self-destructive patterns/beliefs that hinder you from living life vibrantly.

I believe, and have seen, that within the context of a safe, supportive, and genuine therapeutic relationship you can uncover your authentic self and learn to live by that authenticity.
Are you struggling to create meaning or purpose in life? Are you feeling stuck -- unable to make decisions or move forward? Do you tend to feel lonely or misunderstood? Know that you are not alone. These are dilemmas most everyone wrestles with at one time -- or many times throughout life. My passion is to join with clients in the exploration of these issues and the vast spectrum of others that may be connected and entangled within. It can be difficult to untangle these knots, but the work can lead you to emotional freedom, fulfillment, and acceptance.

Personal distress has many sources: difficult circumstances, lack of fulfillment, relationship struggles, painful past, and barriers to better behavior. And distress shows up in many forms: anxiety, depression, anger, destructive acting out, substance abuse, and physical symptoms. It is difficult for us to view ourselves with objectivity. Family and friends, though well meaning, often have their own agendas. An educated and confidential third party can be the answer. Drawing from many therapeutic traditions and years of experience, I will help you understand and make corrections to your life that promote growth and happiness.

As an individual who has sat on both sides of the therapeutic relationship , I am an approachable , down-to-earth, warm, and supportive therapist who brings a balanced sense of relief and humor to the therapy room.
Lucy in the Peanuts cartoon once said, "to be happy you also have to be sad sometimes; then you're really happy." I agree! Life is about engagement with all of your feelings. How do you relate to your life? Are you finding challenges, aliveness, connection to self and others? Do you have a sense of meaning or is life just something to get through? Are you living or just existing? I strive to assist clients in being closer, more alive, connected, and vibrant, embracing the highs and the lows of life with more balance and acceptance.

I believe that the deepest healing happens when therapy is rooted in connection, empathy, and compassion, so my first goal is to create an environment in which you feel understood and supported. Likewise, I believe we are truly whole when our most important relationships are thriving – including our relationship with ourselves. Strengthening these relationships is a primary focus of my therapeutic approach, along with the attainment of embodiment and mindfulness. I work from a psychodynamic and experiential perspective to guide you towards an experience of authenticity and alignment with yourself, others, and the world.

I may be a good fit if you have concerns about: communication/ relationship issues - for couples or other significant relationships; an ADHD diagnosis, or suspect you are a candidate for one; trauma, or complex illness; life transitions, or adjusting to a new country/culture.
I love my work. I will dedicate myself to your journey to find answers to your important questions, honoring your unique story, I hail from Dublin, Ireland, with stints in London and NYC before landing in Austin. My working style is warm, direct, gently probing. I have a sense of humor, an important asset in life as in therapy, and I can be feisty. Conflict makes me as uncomfortable as the next person, but I have learned that often, out of respectful conflict, can come invaluable growth. Just as the grain of sand irritates the oyster in the shell, conflict can produce a marvelous pearl.

What better place is there to practice new relationship skills? My groups offer an accepting environment that challenges you to grow.
Healthy relationships are essential to a fulfilling life! Worry, isolation, anger, and many other difficulties can get in the way of expressing your emotions in positive ways in your relationships.

Your innate self-healing ability and our therapeutic relationship will form the basis of our work together.
Being curious about what makes us feel and act the way we do brings authenticity, creativity, and choices into our lives. Our self-concept and beliefs about the world are often formed in childhood and learned in our primary relationships. Unconsciously, these early experiences guide many of the decisions in our lives. I am passionate about exploring with you, the patterns that may leave you feeling confused, frustrated, or unable to move forward. Together, we will create space to cultivate conscious and caring responses to the inevitable challenging events of life.

Within a healthy and trusting therapeutic relationship (or therapy group), people show amazing capacity to grow into deeply satisfying lives.
Are you looking to connect with what gives you pleasure in life? You may be seeking help with depression, anxiety, or difficult relationships. Many people suffer through years of painful or problematic experiences that interfere with their lives.

Often these can be symptoms of negative thinking, painful relationships, or misdirected emotions. Research shows talking to a trained professional can be very helpful. Working together can make you less overwhelmed, improve life decisions, and develop a sense of freedom and authenticity with both yourself and others.

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.
