My hope is to assist you in exploring issues, both present and past, which are causing anxiety, depression and pain in your life in order to have a positive impact on your well-being. The counseling process encourages a path for self-discovery by helping you to:

  • talk in a safe environment
  • understand the origins of fear, anger, self- doubt, grief and needs
  • stop self-destruction
  • learn an internal voice of self-compassion and encouragement
  • face new challenges
  • increase self-worth
  • set intentions and define goals
  • communicate more effectively
  • believe in your own resiliency

Therapy progresses at a pace that respects your readiness to tackle issues of importance to you. Some people work for a few months and others, for a few years, while some end for a while and come back later. There is no right amount of time to be here, except what is right for you. I look forward to meeting you and working with you to achieve your goals. Together we will create a therapeutic toolbox to relieve pain and develop healthier coping strategies. Please feel free to contact me by phone or email to set up an initial consultation phone call. Due to the covid-19 health crisis, I am seeing clients via telehealth appts only at this time. If you are currently in crisis, please call 988, 911, your doctor's office or the city's helpline at 512-472-4357.                                  I will begin seeing clients in person in October if covid continues to ease.                                                                                                                Wishing good health and safety to all.                                                                                                                                                                                                   Micki O'Brien
