Providing telehealth counseling services in Texas to help you manage anxiety, cope with life changes and stressors, and create positive personal growth

Brava Vita Counseling

Don't let anxiety, worries, and life stressors keep you from living your best life.

Challenging, stressful experiences can be overwhelming. This is especially true for those of us balancing work/life and a number of responsibilities. You might be coping with anxiety, loss, or unexpected life changes. Or maybe you’re yearning for deeper meaning in your relationships or career. 

These are all very important concerns, and you may be feeling lonely, worried, and unsure of what next steps to take as you face them. And this is where we often get “stuck”. Often, self-doubt and worry keep us from recognizing our own strengths, values and potential.

But you don’t have to face these challenges alone.

Live well, live bravely!

Our approach to therapy is about empowering you to make positive changes in a supportive, therapeutic space. This means that we walk alongside you on this journey of growth and exploration. Together, we’ll work to build personal insights and helpful coping skills that help you better manage life challenges.

Most importantly, we embrace a collaborative approach to care. This means that you are the expert of your lived experience. And that helps us draw on your unique, amazing qualities to help you live well and live bravely!

Finally, we believe that you should have convenient access to quality care, wherever you happen to live in the state. That’s why we provide telehealth (online) counseling in Texas, including the San Antonio and Austin metro areas.

“Counseling is about creating a trusting, supportive space for you to explore the different challenges that arise in life. I’m continuously impressed by the strength and bravery demonstrated by clients when they dive into therapy, and I strive to be worthy of their trust by treating all clients with respect and acknowledging their humanity and dignity. The counseling process is collaborative, and together, you and I forge an open, nonjudgmental space for you to explore your experiences, learn, and grow.”
