If you are looking for a light to shine on your path of emotional, physical and spiritual healing, Engracia can be that light. I have worked with Engracia for over 20 years, and I have continued to reconnect at different points of my life when I needed a trusted guide. Engracia is a safe harbor. She has provided the tools and the encouragement that have helped me along my journey of recovery and renewal. Even though we are all responsible for our own path, we need support from someone who cares deeply and is genuinely engaged in our exponential growth so that we can all experience a life well lived.

My work with Engracia has been life changing. I started with her ten years ago when I was in a scary, dark place. She is truly connected spiritually to the Divine Source and was instrumental in leading me back to a place of peace and joy. Through my work with her, I now have practical tools to use when dealing with life events. I trust Engracia implicitly. And highly recommend her when you are ready to do the work.

Engracia is extremely caring, exceptionally smart & hands down the best therapist I've ever worked with. I had three therapy experiences before Engracia and I never made even a fraction of the progress I've made with Engracia in the past 1.5-2 years of working with her. I would highly recommend her to anyone 🙂 Thank you for all you do Engracia! You're changing lives.

I love to work with adolescents to address anxiety and depression issues. I work with individuals, families, and couples in Austin, Texas.

Some of the Treatments

Relationship Therapy

Anxiety

Depression

Trauma Resolution

Often, circumstances in our environment will be the catalysts to change, whether it is a job stressor, a relationship stressor or an inner stressor. When our habitual coping mechanisms become ineffective to manage external circumstances that demand profound change, we become overwhelmed.
Suffering from anxiety can leave a person filled with worry and panic. While occasional feelings of anxiety are normal, excessive or constant anxiety symptoms can be overwhelming and rehabilitating to a person’s quality of life and well-being.
Depression can go undetected for years, resulting in a person feeling stressed or unhappy without realizing that depression is the root cause. The reason behind this is that they may simply be unable to recognize that feelings of irritability, neediness, and anger actually stem from depression.
Trauma is an emotional and physiological response to deeply distressing or disturbing events. Sudden, unpredictable events or experiences that pose a direct threat to life often overwhelm a person’s ability to cope. As a result of these traumatic events, a person’s ability to feel safe in the world can be shattered.

FAQ

Both! I’m happy to provide sessions in whichever format best fits your schedule.
All sessions are 50-minutes.
I offer individual, couples, family, and group therapy.
In therapy, you learn to identify specific maladaptive patterns that originate in how you and your spouse respond to stress within the marital dynamic. Together, you forge a deep awareness of your vulnerabilities and how you cover them up to cope. Learning to communicate in a mutually respectful stance is the first step. Next comes understanding of the vulnerable need underneath the fight. The ability to meet the need underneath is what is learned in therapy with the help of an experienced therapist.
No. I offer therapy to teenagers and adults.
Unfortunately, no, currently I do not. All sessions are self-paid; however, I’d be happy to provide you with an invoice should your insurance reimbursement some of your session cost under your Out-Of-Network plan.
I can provide sessions in English, Spanish, or French, upon request.
