I help adults and teens dealing with anxiety and panic, life transitions, grief and loss, trauma, and self-esteem.
Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Austin, TX
There's a little voice in your head criticizing and second guessing every decision you make. You're terrified of making a mistake because when you do, your inner drill sergeant comes out and beats you into submission. Nothing ever feels good enough. Therapy can help you build a healthier kind of self-esteem! Transform that nasty inner critic into a compassionate and helpful guide that will empower you to do your best.
You’re tired of having the same weekly arguments, but never finding a resolution. Your teen constantly panics about everything, blanks out during tests, or doesn't get enough sleep. Maybe you and your partner disagree about how to handle conflict. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way! Therapy can help your family reconnect and stay connected by solving what feels unsolvable.
You're tired of feeling panicked for seemingly no reason, constantly replaying scenarios and "what ifs" in your head. You start to get angry at yourself, wondering “why can’t I just calm down?” Feeling out of control sucks, but therapy can help you get better. Gaining insight and awareness into what is fueling your anxiety and high stress allows you to actually do something about it. Imagine what a difference it would make to feel a sense of peace and calm in your daily life.
Do you feel yourself getting riled up when your child misbehaves or doesn't listen? Do you and your spouse disagree on how to raise your child? Are you worried about repeating the mistakes of your own parents? Maybe you feel disconnected from your spouse or child and are tired of having the same arguments every week. There's no manual that tells you how to be a parent, yet so many parents feel shamed or like they're doing something wrong. I hold a non-judgmental space for both teens and parents to explore concerns and build skills to reconnect. Together we'll find ways to bring more positive energy and playfulness into your relationships so your family can connect, heal, and grow.
Being an adult is so much harder and more unpredictable than you anticipated. You're tired of looking around and feeling like everyone else knows what they're doing while you're drowning.
