My Approach to Helping

“For there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” Hamlet: Act 2, Scene 2

Hi! My name is Edwin Ancarana. I am a Psychotherapist and Licensed Professional Counselor, offering Telehealth & Online Counseling for Relationships, Sexuality, Trauma, and Addiction. I graduated from St. Edward’s University in Austin with a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology. I am based in Austin, TX, have been in practice since 2012, work exclusively through telehealth and online counseling, and serve the entire State of Texas.

My ideal clients are working professionals that struggle to build their ideal lives. They struggle with anxiety, depression, anger, and trauma, which manifests in poor communication, troubled relationships, overwhelming addictions, and PTSD. They have busy schedules and are open to new technologies such as telehealth or online therapy.

I have successfully worked with clients on a wide range of issues, including relationship communication and intimacy, anxiety and depression, gender and sexual identity and transition, addiction and recovery, and physicalsexualemotional trauma and PTSD. I have worked in both private-practice and substance-abuse treatment settings. I am LGBTIQ, poly, and kink friendly, knowledgeable, and invested.

Sharing and being vulnerable with another human being takes courage. I honor that courage by partnering with you to hear your story, create new narratives about your life experiences, teach you skills for dealing with overwhelming thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and help you discover communication tools that can enhance and strengthen your relationships.
