Welcome. Thank you for considering me as your new therapist. I’m covid vaccinated so I can book you immediately to come to my office. For your safety during COVID-19, I have been doing Individual and Couples Therapy, as well as Teletherapy for 40 years. And of course, you can see me in person in my beautiful and sanitized very private home office. I am covid vaccinated so you’ll be safe with me.
I served with NASA and had the honor to serve our country as a Psychologist for the El Toro Marine Air Station for 15 years. I’m very savvy in helping military personnel, law enforcement, firefighters, teachers, and government workers. I hold a K-12 Teaching Certificate and get excellent results with teenagers and children, whether the need is academic or behavioral. What most couples are excited to hear is that I’m a World Class Expert in the Art and Science of Romantic Love, praised by peers from Yale, Princeton, Stanford, and Notre dame. People even call me Dr. Love.
Now, let’s get acquainted. I assume you are in pain of some sort or you wouldn’t be contacting me. So what is it?
Anxiety? Everybody on earth has basic anxiety. It goes with the territory of being human. But when anxiety gets out of hand, it can turn into chronic anxiety that keeps you churned up inside and leads to severe conditions of panic attacks or agoraphobia (fear of leaving the house). That’s not what anyone wants. As a Master Therapist (Licensed CA Psychologist, Licensed TX Marriage & Family Therapist, and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional), I assure you we can transform your anxiety into confidence, courage, and happiness—if you follow my direction.
The same thing is possible with depression. Chronic depression is terrible and debilitating. It destroys the joy of living, disrupting your enjoyment of work, marriage, and everything else. Our therapeutic bond can get rid of it. Why don’t we replace those “ANTS” (Automatic Negative Thoughts) with Peace, Joy, and Love. Does that sound like a goal you’d like?
If your pain involves family tensions, trouble at work, addictions, or even sexual dysfunction, I’ll blaze a path that guides your journey into a life that you love.
What if you have a Personality Disorder? Fortunately, I am a Distinguished Authority on Ten Personality Disorders and have written a major textbook that other therapists use to treat them. So, no problem. You and I will set you free to pursue personality, wholeness and a life worth living!
If you want to get acquainted and have your questions answered, I offer a free initial phone consultation. I’ll help you assess how we might work together to solve whatever is bothering you. Just call me any time at 512-988-1209.
Some Clients have called me ” Austin’s coolest marriage and family therapist” For a good reason. Even though I have decades of counseling experience under my belt, I consider each new client as unique and worthy of unconditional positive regard. So give me a jingle and let’s rock and roll!
