Therapy, Assessment, Yoga and Meditation
Everyone feels stuck sometimes in their own life, and every parent feels overwhelmed once in a while. If you are an adult looking for help with problems such as depression, anxiety, relationship problems, attention problems, or if you are looking for help for your family with child behavior problems, ADHD, learning disabilities, anger or outbursts, therapy might be what you need to help make things feel manageable again.
As a licensed psychologist, I provide adult individual, family, and child therapy out of my office here in Austin, TX. I draw on my skills and training as a registered yoga teacher and practitioner of mindfulness meditation when clients are interested in integrating these approaches in therapy. In addition to working as a therapist, I provide testing services to diagnose problems such as ADHD and learning disabilities.
Therapy isn’t one size fits all. I have no recipe book. I use my broad training and experience to find what works for you. When I work with families or individuals, we work as a team to customize your counseling sessions to help you achieve your goals.
Therapy is nurturing but it is also work. Therapy is a place you can feel cared for and supported, but it also requires and investment of time and energy. My experience with yoga and meditation will help you to learn new ways to cope with overwhelming emotions. My insight-oriented approach to therapy will assist you in better understanding the underlying reasons for your problems so you can make lasting changes. When working with children I use play therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy to help them make meaning of their struggles and learn new ways of coping.
