Jonathan F Anderson, MA, LPC-s, Licensed Professional Counselor in Austin
I provide an honest, casual approach that uses science, compassion and intuition along with an active, participatory style; my goal is for our work to feel like a 2-way conversation, not a lecture. Regarding treatment modality, I come from a mindfulness based cognitive-behavioral approach. This means that I teach mindfulness as a way to discover efficient solutions. While expertise in the treatment modality used is important, the modality itself is secondary in importance to your trust in me. To this end, I listen to more than just your circumstances; I get to know you and adapt to your unique personality.
I have a relaxed, no-nonsense style. I actively participate in our sessions, rather than just reflecting back what you have said. While letting you brainstorm ideas is a valuable tool, I will not let you spin your wheels; I am happy to give you specific guidance when it makes sense.
People report feeling very at-ease in my office. My trained therapy-assistance dog, Buddy, is usually present and adds to the warmth of our time. People report success from our work because their solutions are intuitive and natural to their personality, rather than marketed to the masses.
