Increase Life Satisfaction

We all seek happiness in our lives, but sometimes it is elusive. Dr. Brooks can help you find greater life satisfaction – because you deserve it. 

You Feel Stuck

You look around and see people living life happily. They wake up, hop out of bed and seem to just skip right into their day. They have healthy relationships and healthy routines. They have goals that they work towards and achieve. And it all just seems to come so… easy.

But for you, it’s not easy.

You fight with anxiety and self-doubt – or worse, crippling sadness. Sometimes you struggle to feel at all, weighed down with numbed apathy. Every day is a challenge. Sometimes it takes all the energy you have just to get out of bed.

You try to manage it, but your work and professional life have been dragged down. While others seem to be naturally motivated, you need to muster all your strength for each individual task. By midday, you’re exhausted. You know that you want a successful career, but it feels like you just can’t get out of your own way.

It’s not only work though. Your relationships have also suffered because of it. At times, you’ve likely let the people closest to you down. They try to be there for you, but they can’t understand what you’re going through. It’s hard for them to relate. This only adds to your frustration and anxiety – because you know they deserve better. You aren’t at fault for your depression and anxiety. But you WILL be the solution.

Imagine being naturally happy. Imagine having the tools to manage stress and tackle unease. The solution is within you. You just need help unleashing it.

Why Dr. Mike Brooks?

I am a licensed psychologist with 20 years of experience. I have worked with over 1,000 clients. This extensive experience has given me a deeper understanding of a wide variety of mental illnesses and psychological hurdles.

I am the author of the book: Tech Generation: Raising Balanced Kids in a Hyper-Connected World. I am also a well-known presenter, having presented at the Axon Corporation, the Austin Eating Recovery Center, and on multiple podcasts/radio shows. I have contributed to numerous media outlets, including the New York Times, Texas State University News, and Martha Stewart Living.

I regularly blog for Psychology Today, focusing on the psychological effects of technology on children – as well as many other topics. 

But more important than these credentials, my brand of therapy is client-centric.

I know that the solution to your problems is within you. No matter how many clients I see, no two are perfectly alike. Effective therapy must be informed by psychological study – but never so rigid that it can’t adapt to a client’s specific situation. I genuinely enjoy helping clients overcome their struggles and discover their inner strength.
