Louise McDermott, MA, LPC, Counselor in Austin
Let's face it, life can really hurt sometimes. Answer this question: Am I ready to know who I really am? Why? Because trying to mask our imperfections is exhausting and unnecessary. No one can be everything for everyone. If you're feeling stuck, you might be looking to external cues to measure internal self-worth. When do we honestly look inside and recognize our most basic needs and values? Does this sounds empowering to you? Then contact me and find out if we're a good fit for one another.
My approach to therapy stems from in the belief that people need to be heard and understood. When willing, people can change. Conscious awareness and self-acceptance are aids to personal growth. As they say, "pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional." What actions today could reduce your suffering?
"Sometimes the only thing you can change is your perspective." If that statement resonates with you, then I might be a good fit for you. I enjoy helping functioning adults who want to find autonomy and lesson make better decisions These personal traits are often lacking in codependent relationships.
