When you are consumed by disordered eating and body hatred, it affects all areas of your life.

Mental Health Counseling in Austin, TX and Lakeway, TX
Mental health counseling represents an integral part of the therapeutic process. A mental health counselor can provide support to individuals, couples, and families as they process their issues. We provide treatment such as anxiety therapy, depression therapy, relationship counseling, addiction therapy, and trauma therapy. Such counseling can help clients develop better insight and understanding of the underlying causes of their undesirable behaviors and emotions, and to find new ways of promoting better mental health and more positive outcomes.
Couples counseling is especially beneficial in the treatment of couples who are experiencing issues that may be leading to conflict and dissatisfaction in their relationship. Mental health counselors are trained in various strategies and techniques that can help couples become better communicators, problem solvers, and conflict resolvers. In this type of counseling, couples are encouraged to identify and address the issues that are leading to their relationship struggles, and to focus on developing new techniques to foster greater understanding, trust and closeness.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy is a type of counseling aimed at helping individuals heal from trauma, such as from a natural disaster, homicide, or motor vehicle accident. EMDR has been shown to be particularly beneficial in helping individuals process and integrate traumatic experiences so that the associated emotions, thoughts, and bodily sensations can be better regulated and relationships can be strengthened.
Eating disorders represent a type of mental health concern that can have particularly far-reaching effects on an individual’s life and physical health. Mental health counselors are trained in various techniques to help their clients suffering from an eating disorder come to terms with the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that may be driving their disordered eating. Through building trust within the therapeutic relationship, clients can learn to recognize and address the underlying issues that may be perpetuating their behaviors regarding food.
Trauma is often experienced by individuals that have faced difficult and challenging experiences in their lives. Mental health counselors are trained in how to effectively and compassionately help people process and integrate traumatic memories so that their functioning can improve. Counselors can employ various techniques, such as EMDR, to help their clients process the emotional, cognitive and physical components of the trauma in order to gradually reduce their level of distress and to become better able to engage in relationships and other activities.
In mental health counseling, it is important to consider the cultural context of an individual’s life in order to make sure that their treatment plan is tailored to their individual needs and values. Mental health counselors should be aware that certain cultural values and beliefs may be at odds with certain facets of the therapeutic process and should strive to be as respectful and sensitive as possible in their approach.
Mental health counselors are also responsible for maintaining a supportive and collaborative therapeutic environment. This involves creating a relationship of trust in which clients can feel safe, valued and respected. Mental health counselors should strive to help their clients achieve a greater sense of empathy, motivation and meaning in their lives, as well as increased knowledge about the underlying causes of their struggles in order to create a more authentic sense of self and improved relationships.
Finally, it is important for mental health counselors to provide their clients with resources to help them on their recovery journey. Such resources may include self-help books, online support groups, or other forms of mental health services such as medication management or group counseling. It is also important for counselors to assist their clients in developing a recovery plan that includes wellness activities that can promote improved mental health.
In conclusion, mental health counseling can be a very valuable part of the therapeutic process. It can help individuals, couples, and families address and come to terms with various challenges, such as anxiety and depression, addiction, couples conflict, eating disorders, and trauma. Through developing a trusting therapeutic relationship and employing various strategies and techniques, mental health counselors can assist their clients in achieving more meaningful lives and greater mental health and well-being.
