Louise McDermott, MA, LPC, Counselor in Austin
Let's face it, life really hurts sometimes. Ask yourself this question: Am I willing to know the real me? Why? Because trying to mask your imperfections is exhausting and unhealthy. No one can be everything to everyone. If you're unhappy and feeling "stuck," you may not recognize nor accept your true self. Seldom do we objectively self-reflect and identify our most basic needs and values. If this sounds like what is going on with you, then contact me and find out if we're a good fit for one another.
My approach to therapy is rooted in the sincere belief that people need to be recognized and heard. And when willing, people can change. Increased self-awareness and acceptance are vital to personal growth. Like they say, "pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional." What actions might 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 functional adults who are unnecessarily anxious and hard on themselves. This trait is often present in families where co-dependency is prevalent.
