Louise McDermott, MA, LPC, Counselor in Austin
Let's face it, life sucks sometimes. Ask yourself this question. How willing am I to know the real me? Why? Because living life hiding your imperfections is exhausting. Nobody can be everything to everyone. The good news is that there are two things to try when you're stuck. They are knowing your truth, and living life accordingly. Seldom are we asked about our needs and values. If this seems strange, then I'm probably not for you. If you relate to these statements, perhaps you are ready to discover how you create a more fulfilling life.
My approach to therapy stems from the conviction that people need to be recognized and heard, and that people, when willing, can change. I understand that self awareness and acceptance are vital to personal growth. Why people seek therapy is beside the point, it's that they accept that change is inevitable.
"At times, 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 functioning adults who are hard on themselves. I also understands issues unique to those living with an autoimmune disorder.
