  Angela's unique combination of professional credentials allows her to integrate a holistic approach into her work with couples and individuals. At this time, she is the only dually certified Emotionally Focused Therapist and certified Sex Therapist in Austin proper and one of few in the greater area of Texas.  Her practice follows attachment-oriented psychotherapy with an integration of intimacy and sexual health for couples and individuals.

She uses evidenced-based models, clinical consultation, continuing education, and clinical processing groups to ensure that I am providing my clients with the best psychotherapeutic treatment possible.

Angela identifies with the pronouns she/her/hers. 

While Angela strives to meet all my clients with support and the help they need.  Her practice is limited in its capacity for acute and emergency crisis.  

Lastly, scroll down and meet Mr. Sweenie Todd, Angela's beloved little Dachshund. He's not ready yet to join me in the therapy office...but we are looking into it.

Maria’s therapy modality holds that people get stuck in painful interaction cycles. By
slowing down our emotional processes, we can gain a deeper understanding of the
emotions and motivations behind our cycles.

 

From a place of insight, we are better able

to communicate our needs and desires with ourselves and others.
 

Maria’s approach is slow, gentle, and nurturing, as she focuses on cultivating safety
and connection. She aims to strengthen emotional bonds and foster secure connections
between partners and within individuals.

 

Maria understands the power of self-exploration in enabling couples and individuals to heal attachment wounds, deepen intimacy, and cultivate fulfilling relationships.

 

Maria identifies with the pronouns she/her/hers. ​

 

Maria offers therapy in Spanish and English.

There are names for what binds us:
strong forces, weak forces.
Look around, you can see them:
the skin that forms in a half-empty cup,
nails rusting into the places they join,
joints dovetailed on their own weight.
The way things stay so solidly
wherever they’ve been set down —
and gravity, scientists say, is weak.

And see how the flesh grows back
across a wound, with a great vehemence,
more strong
than the simple, untested surface before.
There’s a name for it on horses,
when it comes back darker and raised: proud flesh,

as all flesh,
is proud of its wounds, wears them
as honors given out after battle,
small triumphs pinned to the chest —

And when two people have loved each other
see how it is like a
scar between their bodies,
stronger, darker, and proud;
how the black cord makes of them a single fabric
that nothing can tear or mend.

FOR WHAT BINDS US
