As a psychodynamic clinician, I aim to understand the unique world of each patient or patient(s) tailoring treatment accordingly.
Most of the patients I work with have been diagnosed with a personality or dissociative disorder and are seeking a more personalized treatment than many cognitive-behavioral approaches, such as DBT, can provide. These disorders develop as a means of survival. Suffering, however, signals that this way of moving through the world is no longer providing protection. My approach takes an in-depth look at the root cause of suffering, creating space to be curious about new ways of moving through the world and connecting with the self(s) and others. I also specialize in working within the trans and non-binary community.

****PLEASE EMAIL FOR SCHEDULING*** Are you looking for a professional who can help you move through your emotional pain? Have you tried counseling before but it felt unsafe to open up? Traumatic experiences at any stage of life can make it difficult to trust others enough to experience the benefits of therapy. Therapy itself can become a challenge to overcome, but, the truth is we all need someone to open up to. If you want to learn how to process negative emotional disturbance so that you can feel a sense of relief and heal yourself, I can be there to guide your journey.

Anxiety interferes with our ability to maximize our potential and can debilitate our ability to interact with others. The persistent worry and physical symptoms that accompany that worry manifest into intrusions in our daily living. The struggle of dealing with anxiety is all-encompassing and is a difficult journey to venture through alone. I work with people to help them find lasting relief from the symptoms of anxiety and the unhealthy patterns that they develop to deal with it.

In my experience, I've found that people come to therapy when they are in a crisis situation or encounter something that seems too overwhelming to face on their own. I approach my work in a collaborative way that promotes self-awareness, understanding, support and discovery, promoting safety and understanding. By focusing strengths, I hope to assist my clients in finding healthy ways to cope with stressors, achieve desired changes, better understand how they relate to others and the world, develop personal potential and empower in a gentle, purposeful manner.

Life is everchanging. My clients are experiencing challenges that require them to change in order to go forward. Some clients are interested in dreams and personal growth over time. Others want some immediate support to help them sort out the difficulties they currently face: whether it be the loss of a relationship, a career, a difficult illness, or some other major change in one's orientation to life. I have a depth and breadth of experience working with people of all stripes and in both law and social work: that is, people who have been stuck in some very difficult places. I value individuality and wholeness--not perfection.

Most Marriage and Family Therapists study systems. Even if an individual comes alone to a counseling session, they bring many influences. My role is to help you find your unique path amid the many voices, and become your best self. I have observed that almost everyone has had a time where they wondered if they have all the necessary life tools to move in a positive direction. Utilizing a safe environment, individual creativity and resources, I have seen people truly Become.

I have been successful in the past with all manner of clients through many different settings – male, female, transgender, heterosexual, LGBTQ+, in inpatient, outpatient, technician, assessment, or even consulting settings. I also really enjoy working with teens and adolescents, since early brain-based interventions help everyone succeed even more in their lifetime. I find that my personality and style seem to fit best with clients who feel they are trapped in a negative routine, have no one with which to talk, or no way out of the situation from which they suffer.

In my work I have found that people come to therapy when life has thrown them a curve that they are not sure how to negotiate. Whether it be an unmanageable relationship, excessive anxiety, or recurring depression. Therapy is a resource to help you deal with the issues that keep you stuck in old patterns. Through active listening and reflection, I can help you identify contributing facets of the issue. Together we can look at the whole picture and find the best way to move forward.

Self-discovery and personal growth are important to you. You consider yourself a non-conformist and are on a continual quest for an authentic and fulfilling life. You just need someone to listen to you and provide a different perspective. If this sounds like you, let’s talk.

Hello and welcome. I practice psychotherapy from an IFS model and am IFS trained. Perhaps that means something to you and perhaps it doesn't. If IFS is just letters to you not to worry! To put it simply, it means that we will hold that people have many feelings, many strategies, many wishes, and many concerns that can sometimes compete. We can join together in focus areas of your life and get to know the constraints that are operating. This work supports the ongoing exploration of the inner life to increase intimacy and joy, inside and out. I invite you to contact me if you'd like to go further.

When life becomes overwhelming it can help to talk to someone you trust. As a counselor my goal is to help you better understand your struggles and how to manage them. Children and teenagers often struggle to explain their feelings to adults, and even their peers, making it difficult to get the support they need. Adults sometimes feel that they need to have it all together and take care of everyone else. This often means not taking care of yourself. I will work with you to tackle the struggles you are facing to find peace and happiness.

My name is Chelsea DeKruyff, MA, LPC. I am a compassion-centered, neuroscience-informed psychotherapist in Austin, Texas. I specialize in working with PTSD and trauma-related disorders, ADHD, relationships, and identity issues. You may feel like your experience is too big, that it would overwhelm a listener. You may think that your experiences are inconsequential and don't warrant the attention of a therapist. If you hold either view, I encourage you to open yourself to new possibilities.

I believe each person is unique, and that clients are ultimately the experts on their own life. I never assume to know exactly what another person’s experience is like. My role as a counselor is to witness, reflect, and gently guide clients toward self-acceptance and transformative healing. If you have struggled to connect with your inner-self, feel stuck or uncertain about what you might need and why, or feel blocked creatively- I offer a safe and judgment-free space to facilitate exploration and inspire further vision.

Psychodynamic Therapists

Is psychodynamic therapy evidence-based?

Studies have found psychodynamic therapy to be effective in treating conditions like social anxiety, eating disorders, chronic pain, some personality disorders, and depression; indeed, some studies have found it to be just as effective as CBT or medication. What’s more, several studies have found that the benefits of psychodynamic therapy tend to endure—even grow—long after treatment has ended.

How long does psychodynamic therapy last?

Unlike CBT and other more structured forms of therapy, psychodynamic therapy tends to be open-ended and may not be limited to a set number of sessions. It is common for clients to be in therapy for a year or longer and to see their therapist one to three times a week, though the exact schedule and timeline may vary depending on a client’s challenges and progress. However, brief psychodynamic therapy is available, which tends to be more goal-oriented and typically unfolds over 16 to 30 sessions.

Does psychodynamic therapy work?

Research finds that psychodynamic therapy can help someone manage or reduce symptoms of diagnosable mental health conditions like depression or anxiety. The modality may also offer a range of benefits that are harder to measure but just as valuable—such as increased self-worth or healthier relationships. While no therapy type will work for everyone, research and anecdotal evidence suggest that psychodynamic therapy can be highly effective.

What are the limitations of psychodynamic therapy?

Some meta-analyses have concluded that there is little evidence to suggest that psychodynamic therapy can effectively treat certain mental health conditions such as PTSD, OCD, or psychosis, though it is sometimes used to do so. More broadly, the open-ended, free-association structure of psychodynamic therapy may be frustrating for clients who prefer a more structured, time-limited, or goal-oriented approach.
