A New Specialty: Counseling for New Moms in Austin

Posted by on Aug 3, 2016 in Blog | 0 comments

Yeah, I know it seems like a contradiction in terms—I’m a therapist, and I’m passionate about helping others.

And given that I’ve struggled with being a people-pleaser most of my life, other people’s needs have almost always figured front and center for me.

(That’s a big part of what people-pleasing is all about—getting crowded out of your own life by the needs and feelings of others.)

So how does being selfish figure in?

And because I get to choose, I often work with people whose struggles and stories somehow mirror my own.

Of course, it’s a mutual sort of choosing that goes on.

My clients seek me out first, they set up the free consultation where we first meet.

And they ultimately get to decide if we’ll be working together.

But I have the privilege of choosing a specialty.

I get to paint my message wide across my business, in a sort of “Hi, there!  I see you!  Things are rough right now, huh?  Let’s sort it through together!” way.

And I get to work with people who make my heart sing.  There’s a very true joy to helping others who are suffering with things you know and care about deeply.

That’s why my latest specialization reflects the newest, confusing-est chapter of my life to this point:  motherhood, mental health, and self-care.

So, I’m starting to develop another specialty in my practice–counseling new moms in Austin.
