Therapists Specializing in Body Image in Texas

Body image refers to how you think and feel about your body’s appearance, as well as how you think other people will perceive your body. Body image generally falls somewhere along a continuum, as you can feel different degrees of positivity or negativity towards your body that may change over time.

In reality, bodies come in all shapes and sizes and there is no one ‘normal’ body type. Unfortunately, however, we are exposed regularly to images of a ‘desired’ body type, which can lead to body dissatisfaction. For some, this can cause distress and may lead to various mental health challenges, such as anxiety, depression, body dysmorphia, or eating disorders. Many therapeutic approaches can help develop a more positive body image, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness practices, or acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).

To find the best approach for your needs, it can be helpful to discuss your options with one of the therapists in Texas below who specializes in body image. Therapists have been vetted by the Zencare team for clinically rigorous, quality care. Visit their profiles to watch an introductory video and book a free initial call to find a good fit!

Hello, and welcome to my practice! I am excited to meet you and look forward to developing a relationship with you! It takes courage to begin therapy and I am forever impressed with my patient’s desire to grow and change. Even though the work may be difficult, you will see your self-confidence and relationships improve. I love helping people use their creativity to heal themselves. Even people who have no idea they might be innovative typically find a spark that is original to them. We will discuss what you want to receive from your relationships and how to achieve those goals. Therapy is a process and a journey, but your efforts will empower you to grow in ways you never thought possible!

If you’re here you may be wondering how therapy can be helpful and if I’m the right therapist for you. Thankfully you’ve taken the first step, which is usually the hardest. My primary goal is to create an environment that is accepting, warm and safe, while also challenging you to find new perspectives and likely make some changes in your life. We will work together with the goal of exploring different aspects of your self in order to uncover why you may be feeling stuck or unsatisfied. 

Do you want closeness but have trouble finding the words to ask for it? Are your habits/behaviors getting in the way of your relationships now? Put simply, I help individuals and couples rediscover intimacy and connection. This can include the relationships we have with others but also ourselves--whether you're seeking to better your relationship with your partner or to food and/or sex (and everything in between) I'm here to provide a warm, non-judgmental space that is both accepting and thought provoking.

I believe in therapy being both active and safe which means I will consistently show up for you to help you meet your goals and live the life you want.

When it comes to beginning a healing journey, I like to say that I've been on "both sides of the couch". Beginning to trust someone brand new with some of the most challenging parts of your life can feel vulnerable and risky. I'm here to earn that trust and show you that there is safety in letting someone else in to help you on your journey. While I'll never presume to know exactly what your experience feels like, I'll strive to understand it on a level that allows for connection and encouragement, and I'll always do my best to remind you that you're not alone.

I believe that we are all born whole, with inherent abilities to heal and move towards our highest potential. However, in a society fraught with trauma, loss, abuse, rejection, inequality and unrelenting pressures, it's unsurprising that many of us start to view life as void of meaning, purpose, connection and joy. My role as a psychologist is to help you reconnect with your innate healing abilities by giving compassionate attention to the parts of yourself that might have become fragmented or blocked. When doing this work within a safe, supportive relationship, wholeness becomes inevitable.

I view therapy as a deeply relational process, where we each enter as equal partners with our own expertise: mine in evidence-based therapy, and yours in your unique lived experience. When we combine these perspectives in a safe, affirming context, the therapy process can become a catalyst for healing and transformation. Inner peace and joy are possible, no matter what circumstance you might find yourself in. I have led hundreds of people down this path, and I look forward to connecting with you to see if I might be of assistance as you embark on your own journey.

I became a therapist in order to help people see their strengths, challenge negative thinking patterns, and foster healing. Each client is a unique individual and will be treated as such. You are more than a diagnosis, and you are more than the things that have happened in your life.

At Integrative Counseling & Consulting, I aim to provide quality care in a safe setting as a way to guide and facilitate personal growth allowing you to increase self-awareness, resolve core issues leading to patterns of personal struggle, while helping to create peace and stability within your life.

During therapy sessions, I work with you to tailor therapy goals creating a collaborative treatment plan allowing you to move at your own pace to begin making targeted changes. This also helps you recognize your strengths and resilience as we dig deeper into the core issues along your healing journey.

Ample + Rooted is an inclusive therapy practice and we believe it is our birthright to inhabit, trust and honor our physical and emotional selves without shame. We believe in cultivating a healing home for the whole you and that this healing and belonging is profoundly vital in creating a more equitable and just world. We believe compassion, pleasure and embodiment lead the way toward healing and liberation.

Our work is rooted in relational therapy: We believe the most powerful aspect of therapy lies within relationships, including the one between client and therapist. While many therapists practice a hands-off approach, you're more likely to find us engaging you in the kind of deep, personal work we've seen lead to true healing and growth. It's work that begins with a genuine, respectful and trusting relationship – and the understanding that each of us is the foremost expert in ourselves.

We cultivate a safe and welcoming space of compassion and connection. Our practice is rooted in Health at Every Size®, Body Trust®, fat-positive, sex-positive, LGBTQ+ affirming, harm reduction, trauma-informed, and anti-oppressive frameworks. We are poly and kink affirming and allied with those engaged in sex work.

The name of our practice grew out of the belief that each of us is whole and beautiful as we are; that it is our birthright to inhabit, trust and honor our physical selves without shame; and all that we need to learn, heal and grow is already inside of us. We are bountiful. We are expansive. We are ample.

Our therapy practice promotes connection within ourselves and with one another. It is a space, whether experienced virtually or in person, for becoming grounded in ourselves and the greater world. Here, we are connected. We are mindful. We are rooted.

We are Ample + Rooted.

I believe life is about continuous learning and growing in order to evolve to your true self by being free of self-judgement and full of self -love. Sometimes we encounter trauma that creates deep hurt and pain. Trauma impacts our body and mind which can then cause us to feel stuck in repeated patterns of behavior that do not serve us. Often our ability to embrace the suffering can feel overwhelming. This is when it becomes important to find the courage to seek out meaningful support that will allow for processing and healing to happen.

Being open to counseling and discovering the honesty of your own heart can help you gain clarity and feel inspired to live the life of your dreams. A life where you are free of shame and able to envision today and tomorrow with hope and full of endless possibilities. Sometimes finding your inspiration involves listening to your intuition and learning how to fully connect with yourself and your heart's desires.

Thanks for reaching out and exploring therapy options. Finding the right therapist and fit is important and I am glad you're seeking support at this time. I'm here for you, if you feel it's right for you at this time. Take care.
