Anna Collins, MA, LPC, Counselor in Austin
Despite your best efforts, life is unknowable - you can't always predict or be prepared for what comes your way. You might need help sorting out what's going on. As a therapist, I have learned that we are not alone in our struggles. People hurt together, and we also must heal together. Through our relationships and experiences, we can grow and rediscover what we thought was once lost. I want to help you down that path of discovery while using psychotherapeutic approaches such as attachment theory, internal family systems, emotionally focused couples therapy, interpersonal neurobiology, and somatic experiencing.
More important than any approach, however, is that you feel safe and secure during our time together. I have a nonjudgmental and collaborative style because I am aware of how difficult it is to open up about your deeper needs and problems when starting therapy.
We will work together learning about your neurobiology, so you can take comfort in knowing why you are behaving or feeling a certain way and that it is going to be ok. I anticipate that we will also have quite a bit of laughter as well. Yes, that's right, therapy can be fun!
