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 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.
Understanding where your partner is coming from (their perspective) does not mean that you agree with them, but it motivates them to understand your side in return.
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.
By definition, anxiety is nerve-wracking; it is a heightened state of awareness that is designed to help you pay attention so that you can take care of any potential dangers. Trouble is, sometimes we get this anxiety reaction when there is not an actual threat.
Depression can accurately be described as a nasty magnifying glass that magnifies the worst and minimizes the best. Those who have not dealt with it may have a tough time understanding it, thereby isolating loved ones with depression further.
First of all, please know that experiencing PTS does not mean you have PTS-D; PTS is a list of experiences. The D stands for Disorder and is a diagnosis for more intense, lasting symptoms. Both are manageable.
Buddy: The therapy dog
This 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!
