Jev Sikes, PhD, CGP, Psychologist in Austin
In therapy people integrate the many aspects of themselves so that they feel more whole and authentic. As a therapist, I try to help people bring their feelings into awareness, and to have compassion for these feelings, allowing them to be an avenue for deeper connection with themselves and others. I believe that symptoms of anxiety and depression are often the result of blocked impulses to be intimate/close, to be angry or flee, and many other feelings, such as vulnerability, tenderness, sadness, and loss. I therefore provide a safe atmosphere in which self-exploration and self-care are paramount.
Successful therapy not only relieves symptoms such as anxiety and depression, but greatly improves people's relationships with themselves and others. In achieving this goal, my clients and I often focus on how early relationships with significant others impacted current patterns, such as their self-image and expectations of others.
I have 40 years experience working with a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, relationships, and trauma. Group therapy is a major focus of my work (more below); most of my clients eventually join a group.

Jev Sikes's Groups



3 Weds. Therapy Groups-7:45am, 4:45pm, 6:30pm

All my groups are ongoing adult groups groups-addressing issues such as depression, social anxiety, etc. I believe the best way to understand people's feelings is by examining them in relationship. Most of the people I see therefore eventually end up joining a group, where they can experience and understand how they defend against many feelings in the present moment. These feelings are explored with others who are feeling similarly in a climate of curiosity and tolerance. Group is a wonderful place to gain support and insight into one's self and to practice new ways of relating.
