Original Post: Good morning Reddit!
We are two psychotherapists who have experience working in a variety of settings, including private practice. We both work at Enteave Counseling in Austin, TX., and offer online therapy.
While we cannot provide counseling through reddit, we are happy to answer questions you have about anxiety, LGBTQIA+ issues, depression, general mental health, or counseling (in-person and online). We will be answering questions today from 9am to approximately 1pm CST.
I specialize in helping clients with anxiety, depression, LGBTQIA+ issues, and stress management. I work with clients of all ages, but primarily with teens and young adults. I use cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness/meditation, self-compassion techniques, stress-management, and self-care techniques to help clients learn to manage their symptoms and live life optimally! When I’m not working with my clients, I like to spend time outdoors, play with my dog Stevie Ray, watch Friends reruns, and practice mindfulness meditation.

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, watching Simpsons, and playing Nintendo Switch (favorite games are Skyrim, Dying Light, and Smash Bros.)
