OUR SERVICES

Mental Health Therapy & Counseling

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is a collaboration between an individual and a therapist with an end goal of helping work towards improving quality of life by managing complex situations, solving their problems, and achieving their goals.

Couples Counseling

Couples counseling works by allowing a couple to have a more objective view of their relationship. The purpose is to modify dysfunctional behavior, decrease emotional avoidance, improve communication, and promote each individual’s strengths.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is when a group of people meets with a therapist to address problems, process interpersonal interactions, and support one another’s emotional growth. Its purpose is to bring together multiple people who have been through similar experiences.

Anxiety Therapy

Did you know that anxiety disorders affect 40 million adults over 18 in the United States? If you’re feeling discouraged, remember you’re not alone and that there are many effective anxiety treatments for anxiety that have worked for a large number of people.

Depression Therapy

Depression is one of the most common motives for seeking therapy. Even though it can look similar in different people, our depression therapists work diligently to understand your unique experience with the disorder to learn what is most concerning for you.

Mindfulness Therapy

As you might guess, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy combines mindfulness practices with cognitive therapy. By doing so, our mindfulness therapists are able to offer treatment for a variety of concerns, including depression, anxiety, and addiction.

Addiction Counseling

There is no single cause of alcohol abuse. Mental health professionals agree that a combination of hereditary and environmental factors are responsible for addiction. Our addiction psychotherapists will help you implement treatments to achieve your goals.

PTSD Counseling

Post-traumatic stress often develops after being exposed to trauma, be it mental or physical. Our therapeutic treatments for PTSD help you to incrementally confront what you’ve been avoiding. This allows you to relabel your traumatic memories as nonthreatening.

EMDR Therapy

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is an evidence-based therapy model that is used to treat trauma and to promote the brain’s natural capacity to heal itself in response to adverse experiences.

Eating Disorders

Eating disorders are serious illnesses that can impact individuals mentally and physically. If you’re suffering from this disorder, it’s important to get the proper care. We have an experienced psychotherapist on staff (Emily Bent) who specializes in eating disorders.

Anger Management

Anger management counseling isn’t fundamentally about eliminating anger. Instead, counseling can help you learn healthier ways to handle and express your anger. Our anger management therapists can also help you alter the way triggering situations affect you.

Autism Therapy

Being a child or adult with autism spectrum disorder or high functioning autism can be lonely and frustrating. Our autism psychotherapists will help you become the productive, gracious human being you are behind your mask.

Child Therapy

Adolescence can be a tumultuous time. As children grow into adults, they naturally strive to loosen their ties to their parents. Our child therapists offer a safe environment where children and adolescents can be heard, acknowledged, and listened to.

LGBTQ Counseling

Our LGBTQ counseling provides guidance to people identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or are questioning issues related to any kind of sexuality and gender. We’ll help you find support and understanding for the problems you’re going through.

Sex Counseling

At some point, everyone experiences some kind of sexual concern. Sex therapy is a beneficial step that can be taken in order to best address this sensitive topic. Our Austin psychotherapists will help you work through your sexual concerns.
