private practice - in town
I practice psychotherapy in two offices. One is in a professional building in Austin, the other is in a round pen out at The Hopeful Hearts Ranch in Leander.
In the Austin office, I have what is called an integrative practice which just means that I combine a lot of different techniques and theories together to help clients uncover their limiting beliefs. We do a lot of talking and listening. We might go back to childhood issues or interpret a dream or reframe a way of thinking. We might talk about personality traits or better ways to communicate -- but besides talk-therapy, I use another set of techniques that bring a deeper, experiential component to the work. Two examples are Guided Imagery* and Focusing.* Experiential forms of therapy allow clients to actually feel in their bodies when they are living from a space of authenticity or when they are living out of fear-based assumptions. This brings a power to the work that can’t be found through talk-therapy alone.
Inherent in my work is an appreciation of the mind/body/heart/ soul/spirit connection. When these components are in alignment, we experience a deep sense of well-being. My job is to help clients see where they are out of that alignment and to find ways to bring them back into it. Healing is a process of re-connection.

When mind, body, spirit (and I would add - heart and soul) are in harmony, happiness is the natural result.
