Treatment for Depression

Austin Psychotherapy

People often come to see me to talk about how they feel empty or lonely. They describe a sense of longing to be more involved and connected with those around them. Others tell me about symptoms of depression and anxiety like worry, irritability and circular thinking. It’s as if we live caged within ourselves sometimes.

Psychotherapy can address these concerns. By looking at the barriers that prevent us from communicating directly and freely with others, we discover blocks to our own internal development. Addressing these emotional, psychological and relational barriers in a mutually created therapeutic process can lead to an engaged way of relating with oneself and others. It can help relieve depression, anxiety, self-criticism and loneliness. More importantly, it can lead to more internal freedom and a sense of interconnectedness.
