People seek therapy for many reasons. A difficult struggle may open the door to beginning or a desire to strengthen and support a meaningful area of life. I specialize in helping people understand and make progress with:
Stress and Anxiety
Health and Body
These sessions are grounded in a combination of developmental psychology, attachment theory and psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
I currently have openings for individual therapy and group therapy. Many people I work with decide to add group therapy after some period of time in individual therapy. Research shows group therapy matches individual therapy in its effectiveness for treating many psychological concerns. Often people benefit from the social interaction that is a natural part of group therapy. It not only provides support but helps us gain interpersonal skills for the groups we live in, such as family and work. Group is also an affordable way to pursue weekly long-term therapy.
If group therapy is new to you, the following article shares some good examples and information about how group works.
I've practiced psychotherapy for over 20 years in private practice and community settings, including the University of Texas Counseling and Mental Health Center and Hospice Austin. My professional training includes study at the Center for Group Studies in New York. Prior to becoming a psychotherapist, I worked in international human services and public policy in Taiwan, India, the U.S. Congress, the Texas House of Representatives, and at the University of Texas.
