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 stress decreasing as your enjoyment of life increases. Both individual and couples counseling services use these therapeutic techniques.

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. Whether it is couples counseling or individual, you’re free to just be yourself. Request an appointment.

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.

Depression

Treating depression means helping you learn how to recognize depressive symptoms so that you can build effective coping strategies that help you feel better. These strategies involve mindfulness training, emotional regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness (the 4 treatment areas of Dialectical Behavior Therapy).

Anxiety

Like depression, anxiety treatment involves components of mindfulness training, emotional regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. Specific breathing exercises and changing internal self-talk create changes in thinking that help you feel less anxious and more enjoy your life again.

Stress

Stress management teaches you how to leverage stress rather than be controlled by it. Counseling provides a unique opportunity to look at your life and re-define how you respond to stressors like work/life balance, financial concerns, family stress and health issues.

Crisis & Trauma

Trauma has mental, emotional and physical consequences. Post Traumatic Stress is a set of symptoms in these areas that are very common, however, each individual will have different specific traumatic stress symptoms.
