We sometimes feel stuck in the “spin cycle” of life causing us to feel overwhelmed and helpless. Often, we feel ready to change but aren’t sure of how or where to begin. My approach in therapy is to help you recognize your strengths, increase self-compassion, and adopt a curious approach to your current thoughts and beliefs which perpetuate the current patterns you are seeking to change. I use a variety of lenses in my approach including: Attachment theory, Interpersonal Neurobiology, Trauma informed, and Family Systems. This is your journey and my role is to meet you where you are and travel with you at a pace that you set.
Pflugerville Counseling Center offers a wide range of counseling services to individuals, families, couples, and children/teens. Though each of us specializes in different areas, we all hold a belief that counseling is most helpful when it is about having a safe relationship to more fully explore, understand, and accept self and the choices we make. We believe that everyone has a story and the more we can own our stories, the more choice and control we have over writing the next chapters. We all love working with the brain/body/relationship connection we all hold within ourselves and between each other.
We all experience life in different ways. We all struggle with something mentally or physically. Some struggle with trauma, anxiety, depression, or challenges with having a neurodivergent brain. At times just having someone who is objective to talk with can help. I'm that person. Confidentially and Autonomy are two important words that mean a lot to me as a therapist.
I believe we spend most of our days trying to get our God given needs met. I help you to understand what those needs are, and how to communicate them. As we explore your needs, you can discover when and how they developed. With greater self-understanding you can gain insight that is both healing and leads towards successful relationships and life experiences. If you currently struggle with pain, anger, fear, or anxiety, you will appreciate this therapeutic experience.
New clients welcome! In my practice I provide space for clients to get support with challenging feelings. Here, my clients are met within a relationship that enables them to work towards their goals. This shift often transforms their relationships and the world. My clients’ experiences in the past and present matter in our work together. Our feelings are wonderful tools that can help us live richer lives. Many people have been mistakenly given the message that feelings are too big or bothersome to give full respect and attention.

I specialize in helping people think about how to improve their relationships, their emotional health, and their lives. People often call because they are needing someone to think with them during a difficult season of life. They may notice unhealthy relationship patterns (disconnection, conflict, severed relationships), they may be struggling with a particular transition (transitioning to adulthood, parenting, loss), or they may be struggling to cope with some intense feelings (grief, sadness, anxiety). I would be happy to partner with you to help you think about how you would like to meet the challenges you are facing.
Life can be hard. It's filled with peaks and valleys and sometimes those valleys are tough. But we are not alone in life, and I believe that through a therapeutic relationship one can find meaning, courage, and ways to get through life's valleys.
Mike Jenkins, MA, Certified Life Coach's ideal clients are men or women that want to challenge themselves and/or their relationships to move to the next step. Identify the obstacles that have held them back, develop their goals and future visions of themselves and their relationships and design a unique plan to achieve this. Change can be uncomfortable or even scary, so you need to have someone that’s been down their own journey of change and challenges. I have the life experience and education to be that someone.
Humans are relational. This means we are wired to be loved and accepted by those around us. We live among imperfect people, however, so our experience sometimes becomes hurt from unmet needs. The results then become unproductive patterns in our relationships, negative behaviors, a lack of positivity, and a sense of being stuck. For me, the goal of counseling is to heal past hurts and to process how those hurts affect our current choices and relationships. Once we free ourselves from the hurt, anger, guilt and shame of the past, we are open to feel love and to love others.
