Joan McGuire, MA, LPC, Counselor in Austin
It takes courage to reach out and make the call to get help.I know this is often a critical time in a person's life, a time of crisis and/or confusion.It is also a time for growth. I provide a safe, accepting, and supportive setting in which to explore your experiences and emotions both in the past and present. I work with individuals, couples, and families, on issues such as grief, depression, anxiety, relationship dynamics, trauma, life transitions, careers and creative blocks. I have experience with, and enjoy working with, people of all cultures, ethnicities and sexual orientations.
My training in Jungian-oriented psychotherapy and the visual arts, have informed how I work. It is through a supportive and deeper exploration of previously unknown or hidden parts of ourselves that may appear symbolically or non-verbally in dreams and the unconscious that we gain greater understanding and wholeness in our lives.
The goal of this kind of psychotherapy is to help give you insight and understanding into the beliefs and behaviors that have caused unhappiness and the feeling of 'being stuck' in one's life and in relationships. Developing the necessary skills will lead to greater creativity, purpose, and vitality in your life
