Rhea Nell Anderson
Licensed Professional Counselor in Austin, TX
May you have Courage to face the truth. Strength to weather the storms of sorrow. Resilience to keep moving forward. Gratitude for discovered blessings. Love to fill life to the top and overflowing.
To engage in the process of counseling is to act courageously and purposefully, ofttimes in the midst of difficult circumstances. I am honored to be present with you to help guide you through the process of self-discovery and change.
“The places in our personality where we tend to deviate from love are not our faults, but our wounds.”
A Return to Love
Counselor is a modern-day word for an ages old archetype ~ empathic listener, experienced guide, mentor, path-finder, truth-seeker and truth-speaker, encourager. I have 24 years of counseling experience helping children, adolescents, adults, and families.
“The greatest gift you can give another person is strength.”
My current practice focuses on helping youth age 12 and older, individual adults, and families. While I am eclectic in approach, I primarily utilize techniques and practices drawn from Person Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Relaxation Skills, Guided Imagery, and Transpersonal Psychology. Needs frequently addressed in counseling sessions are depression, anxiety, trauma, family communication, spirituality, inner child work, life transitions, grief and loss, aging and illness, and finding life purpose.
“we all begin the process before we are ready, before we are strong enough, before we know enough”

I cherish life in the country with my family and pets.
