Adam and David at Enteave Counseling
Original Post: Good morning Reddit!
We are two psychotherapists who both have over 10 years experience working in a variety of settings, including private practice and large non-profit and government organizations. We both work at Enteave Counseling in Austin, TX. We offer online therapy and will also resume in-person sessions at our office post-covid.
While we cannot provide counseling through reddit, we are happy to answer questions you have about anxiety, motivation (personal and professional), general mental health, or counseling (in-person and online).
David Head (enteave_david)
I journey along with clients who address low motivation, depersonalization, and dissonance in their professional and personal lives. My approach is collaborative, strengths-based and trauma informed. In the short term my goal and hope is to help clients assess and prioritize their mental health. On the longer term, I hope to show clients how to develop self-sustaining strategies and perspectives so they face future challenges independently.
Out of session I am probably taking care of my family, procrastinating work on my dissertation, continuously designing digital art, apparel, and home gifts (www.badstudioart.com) and making space in the world to hang art.
Adam Paine (enteave-adam):
I specialize in helping clients with high anxiety; I use mindfulness/meditation, stress management techniques, work/life balance techniques, assertive communication training, and behavioral therapy to help clients learn to enjoy life more by managing their stress.
When I’m not working with my clients, I like to read non-fiction, practice yoga, watch old Simpsons episodes (seasons 3-9), and play video games (Nintendo Switch and Oculus Quest).
Ask us anything about anxiety, motivation, counseling, digital art or Nintendo games!
