What is therapy like at Westlake Psychotherapy of Austin?
Coming to therapy often feels overwhelming. Opening up painful memories or working on unhealthy patterns can create a lot of resistance and discomfort.
What if therapy could be a space where healing could feel comforting and relieving? At Westlake Psychotherapy, we strive to create an experience that transcends typical therapy. From the moment you walk in or log on to your appointment, we create a safe and supportive space so you do not have to work alone.
We help you identify your goals for the work, teach you valuable tools or resources to calm and regulate your nervous system, and curate a treatment plan that suits your needs. We want you to leave each session with renewed hope and healing.
Taking the first step toward caring for your mind is a brave and worthy decision. I’m glad you found this site, and I encourage you to learn more about how you can begin your healing journey.
Here is how we work.
Whether you are grieving the loss of a loved one, seeking help with childhood trauma, looking for a process group, or searching to understand your relationship patterns, Westlake Psychotherapy of Austin is prepared to help.
When you reach out to set up a consultation, we will get back to you promptly and ensure we understand your needs and determine if we fit your needs. We listen with compassion and help answer any questions you may have.
The intake appointment allows you to share your goals and helps us get to know you by learning about your life and current and past experiences. Together, we collaborate to set goals for the focus of our work.
Your commitment to showing up each week determines the pace and success of our work together. We would be honored to be a part of your healing journey.
How can our work help you?
Imagine the possibilities: When you leave therapy, you have achieved your goals. You have learned new strategies and techniques to manage symptoms and gained insights into your old patterns and behaviors.
The memories that used to have power over you no longer create distressful feelings. Having limiting beliefs is no longer part of your core identity. You not only know you’re good enough, you feel it, too!
