Thank you for taking the time to consider therapy through the Austin Mindfulness Center and reading my therapist profile. Seeking help is not always easy, and oftentimes it feels uncomfortable. By seeking help today, you are taking a brave step forward.
My name is Eliza and I have been working as a licensed therapist since 2016 in Austin, TX. I graduated with a Masters degree in Clinical Social Work from the University of Texas at Arlington. Over the years, I have provided therapy to clients of different ages, and varying backgrounds and challenges. I consider therapy my calling and continually work hard to ensure I provide the best care for my clients.
Here are some reasons my clients seek therapy:
- A desire for self-improvement or to make a positive life change
- To learn healthy ways to work through anxiety, depression, anger, loneliness, grief
- Support for challenging situations related to school, work, relationships, significant life transitions
- Ongoing difficulties from the past that may include past trauma
You may connect with one or more of these reasons. Usually, realizing a need for change starts with noticing day to day tasks becoming more difficult to complete or feeling more stressed than normal. No matter the circumstance that brought you to seek help today, I am here to focus and work with you.
How I Work
As a therapist, my style can be described as communicative, genuine, and flexible. Our therapy sessions are a journey we will go on together. I've learned that what works for some clients may not necessarily work for others. You may find that as we go on our journey, my skills will become more adapted to your needs.
I often start with a type of therapy called CBT or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. CBT is effective for a variety of issues. In using CBT, we will work on understanding the relationship between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. We will acknowledge patterns that may or may not be helpful to your therapy goals.
Another type of therapy I regularly use is Family Systems Therapy. Oftentimes, stress is shared within a family or support system. This type of therapy allows us to understand dynamics within your relationships and how it may affect your mental health and well being.
Last but not least, mindfulness is another therapy tool we will practice in our sessions. Not all days are about digging at the problem. We may need time to practice being present and accepting of the difficult situation as is, experiencing it without judgement. In my work and personal life, mindfulness has been useful in managing overwhelming thoughts and emotions.
Other therapy approaches I am experienced in are: trauma-informed therapy, DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), and therapy that uses concepts from the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator or the MBTI. In addition to my LCSW, I am an MBTI certified practitioner. This means, I am certified to provide the MBTI and appropriately interpret its results with my clients to help with personal development and growth.
I hope in reading my profile, you can see that there are plenty of ways to reach your therapy goals together. When you are ready to take the next step, feel free to reach out.
