My Approach to Helping
Are you feeling discouraged in your relationship? Have you lost that warm and close feeling you once had? It feels like forever since you spent time together just hanging out and enjoying life. You try to discuss important matters, but you end up arguing and feeling tired and frustrated. To others you all look like you have it all together and are living the dream. But on the inside, you miss what you and your partner once had. Life and its challenges have created a distance between you. You feel alone and miss the friend you once had in your partner. Not anymore. It's time for a change.
You want to rebuild the trust and connection you once had. You want to have fun with each other and enjoy life again. You want to talk with your partner and feel heard and appreciated. You want to feel like a team again. You want to renew the passion you once felt with each other. I can help you get there.
With warmth, humor, & safety, I will guide you in a process that brings the lasting change you're seeking from therapy. I offer convenient online scheduling and flexible appointment times through video and phone sessions. Getting started is simple: just visit my website (www.RelationshipsMatterAustin.com) to book your free 20 minute phone consultation.
