I'm a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate based in Austin, Texas.
Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Cedar Park, TX
Supervised by Erin Davis, LMFT-S
I help couples dealing with a wide range of relationship issues - communication, boundaries, intimacy, parenting, and more. I use Gottman Method Couple's Therapy and Emotion Focused Therapy to help couples move past being stuck and into open communication, honesty, and trust.
Many people grow up in a chaotic home environment where healthy boundaries did not exist and where you were forced to be hypervigilant in order to keep the peace, maintain harmony, or appease a violent or unpredictable authority figure. As a result you struggle with maintaining your boundaries as an adult. Perhaps you constantly put others' needs before your own, are stretched too thin and become resentful, and you don't know where you end and others begin. I can help.
I help those dealing with anxiety and panic. This may surface in so many different ways for different people - chronic health complaints, relationship issues, problems at work, low self esteem, and much more. We will look at the source of your anxiety, your triggers, and develop strategies for managing and improving your anxiety symptoms and tolerance.
I use Prepare/Enrich for premarital counseling and those looking to establish a healthy foundation for their future together.
I am trained in Level 2 Gottman Method Couples Therapy. I use this to help couples move past vicious cycles of poor communication and toxic patterns toward trust and intimacy.
I use CBT for its evidence-based practice in treating anxiety. I work with clients to zero in on problematic thoughts which lead to unwanted emotions and behaviors.
