If you are looking for Austin therapy, I encourage you to read this page and some of my blogs to see if I might be a good fit. Life can be a wonderful journey, but it is often filled with challenges along the way. Sometimes these challenges can become overwhelming, and we feel frustrated, defeated, unhappy, stuck, or confused. My role as a therapist is to help you overcome your challenges and achieve your goals.
Who Do I Work With?
I meet with clients who are thirteen and up. About 1/3 of the clients whom I see are adolescents, about 1/3 young adults (18-25), and about 1/3 adults. I also support parents through parent consultation to help with strategies to improve the parent-child relationship, manage problem behaviors more effectively, and improve the well-being of the children/teens (and parents!). I provide some family therapy, but more of an adjunct to work with teens and young adult clients. I do not work with children or provide couples therapy.
What Issues Can I Help With?
I work with people who are experiencing challenges such as anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, or would just like to increase their overall life satisfaction and happiness/well-being. I also work with people who are struggling with technology, such as tech addiction, and provide guidance for parents and families trying to achieve a greater tech/life balance.
What Is My Therapy Philosophy and Treatment Approach?
I view therapy as a partnership. My aim is to equip you (or your teen/young adult) with the tools to handle life’s challenges. I work with you to better understand the nature of your struggles because our understanding often lights the pathway toward improvement and personal growth. I employ several therapeutic methods such as Feedback Informed Treatment (FIT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, positive psychology, and more. Importantly though, because every client is unique, I customize my approach to best meet your needs. Within our partnership, your feedback on what is helpful, what “clicks,” enables me to work more effectively with you to achieve your goals.
Does Therapy Work?
In general, research has found that people who receive therapy are better off than 80% of people with similar problems who don’t receive therapy. In short, therapy works, but it doesn’t work for everyone equally well. Much of the success of therapy depends upon the quality of “fit” between the therapist and the client. Basically, the better the fit between the therapist and the client, the more likely the client will get a positive outcome. This inspires me to be the therapist that you need me to be to help you meet your needs and goals.
