My Approach to Helping

We humans are beings of mind, body, and spirit. These three experiences of self and others are complex, always evolving, and vitally interconnected. All are welcomed and attended to in my work with clients, both in individual sessions and with couples.

What does that actually mean? Well, many therapists focus primarily on the mind and rely on the exchange of words and thoughts to effect change. That is the traditional approach taught in graduate programs and it certainly is a good foundation. But it is not always enough.

We are embodied beings and feelings and sensations in our bodies are often where symptoms are felt and where lasting changes can occur. We are also social beings embedded in a web of human relationships and life in community. We are too an integral part of natural creation. Sometimes we are aware of being a part of something even larger, more than material. Good therapeutic works weaves in and among these various levels of human experience.

Mental/emotional, physical, and even spiritual concerns are more and more understood as being intimately related. A shift on one level can bring about profound changes in other areas of our lives. We start with the outer problems and inner signals calling for our attention first and often discover what other parts of ourselves may also need care.

For you, this might mean exploring strong emotions that are interfering with your relationships and pursuit of your life goals. Or you may be experiencing a lack of feeling, or just a generalized low (depression) or uncomfortable high (anxiety) that keeps you from being your self at best - able to create a satisfying and meaningful life.

Sometimes your body might bear the burden, and unexplainable physical symptoms may show us a way into unresolved inner conflicts, ungrieved losses, or the deep pain of feeling torn between how your life is now and how you want it to be. Other times you might just feel lost and empty even though things should be "ok" and you don't know why.

We start where you are. We aim for healing and growth in all these experiences of being human.

As a Licensed Professional Counselor and Supervisor, I have been practicing psychotherapy in a variety of public and private settings for 29 years. I am long-time married and have a grown daughter and son. Having lived in Austin since 1982, I know the community well. If I'm not currently a good fit for you, I'll be happy to help find someone who is.
