Austin focuses on looking inward, addressing the scars from one’s past, and living in such a way that lets others see who you are is an act of courage. Walking the path towards an authentic and congruent life can be a lonely one at times. While therapy can never replace the meaningful relationships that one develops organically with those around them, it can provide a space to explore and discover without the threat of disappointment or abandonment.
“My goal is to become obsolete in your life–I’ll be here for as long as you need me, but the objective of therapy is for you to feel like your mental health is strong enough, you can do this on your own.”
