I have experience helping those struggling with addiction, families suffering from the effects of addiction in the home, parenting challenges, grief and loss, anxiety, depression , relationship issues, emotional abuse and trauma.
Whether it's life challenges, obstacles or transitions that are prompting you to seek counseling, today you are one step closer to your personal journey of growth and healing. Fear of change is natural, but can prevent us from letting go of old beliefs, behaviors, ways of being and situations that are no longer beneficial to our wellbeing.

My clients are varied in age, race, and gender. They are dealing with depression , anxiety, trauma, grief and relationship issues. They need someone to listen and to validate their feelings. They need guidance on how to help regulate big emotions that can be overwhelming. They need to learn coping skills and communication skills to help them connect with others in a healthier way. Their goals are to become better at regulating emotions and getting out of their lower brain which is reactive into their upper brain to problem solve and make good choices. They want to stop the pain of their emotions and learn to live in the truth.

My experience is vast, including working with clients dealing with anxiety, depression , trauma, loss, grief, sexual assault, self-harming, and domestic violence.
You are the hero of your own tale; you are a warrior who can rescue yourself. Every warrior needs a tribe, people that are going to support them and rally around you in the darkest of times. Will you allow me to be part of your tribe? Therapy is about you, your freedom and the healing that occurs through self-exploration, understanding, finding meaning, and deepening one's insight. My role is to help you begin to think, feel, and understand yourself more deeply, empowering lasting change. My approach is a person-centered eclectic approach that fosters self-acceptance and empowerment. We will go at your pace, this is your journey.

I consider myself privileged, if not honored, to walk through the life journeys of my clients. I work in a collaborative and facilitative manner with those struggling in relationships, or dealing with anxiety, depression , or work/family issues to name a few. Working with couples and post-menopausal women and their individual struggles in their transitions is also something I enjoy. I believe therapy should be client-centered, goal oriented and short term in nature.

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.

I see the human hunger for self-acceptance in my work with adults; the frustration of trying to make changes while barely keeping up. I offer an environment where you may start from where you are. Pause. Breath. Return to the curiosity present before self-doubt emerged. One achievable step at a time. I use a Systems-oriented approach, which is an active, alive means of strengthening the connections between our "logical" left or cognitive brain; and our more sensate, creative right aspects. I see my anxious, depressed , stuck, or confused clients access personal common sense.

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 Lakeway. 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.
