Psychotherapist in Austin, TX
Life transitions are major changes in life- either voluntary or out of our control. You may be questioning what to do with your life after you graduate. You are in knots trying to decide whether to stay or leave your marriage, change your career, come out, or relocate. We can work together to help you find clarity in decision making, cope with adjusting to big changes, and live a life of purpose.
Anxiety leaves you feeling worried, fearful, and uncertain. You might not even know why you feel anxious, everything seems to be going so well. Yet it persists, this nagging and terrifying feeling that something is wrong. Something bad is going to happen. The truth is that bad things will always happen, but we don't have to live in fear of those things. I can help you learn ways to manage your anxious thoughts, focus on living more in the present moment, and embracing joy.
Stress results from overwhelm. You have too much on your plate and it is hard to feel like you can manage it all. In therapy, we can focus on what it beneath the stress, how taking on too many tasks is a distraction from something larger underneath. We can get to the root of the issue and start to heal the discomfort from within. Easing this pain can help in managing tasks and life stress.
Depression can be debilitating and sometimes you may not even understand why you're feeling so down. You might notice that in addition to feeling inexplicably sad, you have no energy, no motivation, and completing even minor tasks can feel exhausting. Using cognitive behavioral techniques, we can get to the bottom of the thoughts and feelings that are getting in the way and work towards healing and overcoming the symptoms of depression so you can live your life.
