Professional Counseling Austin

Gate Healing, PLLC provides high-quality adult, teen, and family counseling services in Austin, Tx. We help you learn how to deal with depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, and trauma using a Mindfulness-based Cognitive-Behavioral approach.

Mindfulness-based Counseling

Mindfulness-based Cognitive-Behavioral therapy teaches you how to recognize and self-correct negative thoughts. When you see your thought-habits changing, you’ll notice your life improving as well.

How we can help you

Mindfulness-based therapy is about having a conversation and learning that you are capable of making changes that reduce stress, increase confidence, and improve your overall lifestyle. You’re free to just be yourself. Request an appointment.

Counseling & Therapy Services

People come to me for support and guidance, not simply a reflection of their circumstances. To that end, I will certainly listen closely to you and work to understand what you are looking for and what you have already tried. But I will not stop at reflecting back to you what you have said. Instead, I will actively participate in our conversations by offering suggestions and challenges. There will be times that you will need to find your own answers, but rest assured, I will not let you feel alone in your search for answers and solutions.

Individual Counseling

I offer adults and teens a safe place to work through the challenges that life presents. Our work can focus on a range of topics including anxiety, depression, stress, relationships, grief, trauma/PTSD, parenting, and any other life issues you may need to discuss. Rest assured that our time will not be used to lecture you or attach diagnostic labels. Instead, our counseling time is designed to be a conversation that offers support and guidance.

Gottman Method Couples Counseling

The Gottman Method of couples counseling includes a thorough assessment that helps inform precisely where we need to work to improve your relationship. Using this assessment along with an initial 90-minute couples session, we will build a treatment plan that is customized to your specific personalities, histories, and circumstances.

Buddy, the Therapy Dog

Therapy & counseling assistance dog BuddyThis picture really captures him (when he’s awake): Present, intelligent and a show-off. Buddy brings a warmth to my office only a dog can provide!

Buddy is a regular presence in my office. He helps people feel at ease. He is quite intuitive, does not bark, and enjoys playing at Zilker Park. If he is not in “work” mode, he will likely come say hello, then go to sleep beside me. Sometimes, you’ll find him looking out the window in the waiting room; or sleeping in front of it. Feel free to give him a scratch, he’s super friendly! But, please don’t give him treats since by the end of the day he may have no appetite for his dinner!
