Psychotherapy for Individuals and Couples in Austin, Texas

marian-headshot

Hi, thanks for taking the time to check out my site. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state Texas. I provide in-person counseling sessions in Austin for individuals and couples. I have over ten years of experience helping people create the authentic lives and relationships they want. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Maybe you’ve been dealing with overwhelming emotions or you’re numb and you can’t get out of bed. Maybe you feel like you and your partner are caught up in a vicious cycle — arguing about the same things over and over again. If this sounds like you, please know that you don’t have to feel this way. Starting therapy can be the first step toward healing and living a more fulfilling life. Learn how I can help.

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Relationships
  • Intimacy and sex (including open or poly relationships)
  • Trauma
  • LGBTQ+ clients

My Approach

I use an approach that integrates mind and body to help you tap into the wisdom that is already inside of you to manage your emotions better, increase your self-esteem, learn healthy boundaries, and create and maintain fulfilling relationships.

I work from a strengths-based perspective, using a mixture of counseling theories to fit the needs of each particular client, including mindfulness, internal family systems, somatic experiencing, and psychodynamic approaches. I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused therapy, an evidence-based therapy that I use with couples. I am sex positive and strive to create a non-judgmental environment for clients of all orientations and lifestyles. LGBTQ+, kink, poly welcome!
