Kathryn Gates, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Austin
Many people come to me seeking a better relationship with food, exercise, or their body. When there is a problem with eating, moving, or looking in the mirror, several more problems are created. I'm here to answer any concerns about beginning therapy or what it might look like to make some changes in how you deal with food, movement or yourself. Feel free to click the orange button on the left to send questions my way. I'll do my best to get back to you quickly.
I help my clients change the things they say to themselves, so success, joy, and security come easily. I can help you heal communication patterns with others. I can help you use difficult feelings like anger & fear for progress, rather than suffering.
When something prevents you from coming to an in-office appointment, we can meet online. I also enjoy working with clients in walking sessions, where we can reap the benefits of sunshine, fresh air, and endorphin production. You can schedule a session yourself online at GatesTherapy.com
