As a therapist she works primarily from an blend of psychodynamic and experiential viewpoints. In this structure, therapy is primarily aimed at helping clients become aware of and make productive use of deeper thoughts and feelings under the surface. As humans, over the years we suppress and manage our emotions in order to cope with everyday life, however, it is only when we acknowledge and express these emotions, that we can rediscover a passion for life. Therapy encourages self-confidence and independence, a focus on the present, healthy expression of emotions, and a connection of the actual and the symbolic. Therapy can help us gain insight to take control of writing our own story instead of feeling like the world is happening to us as we struggle under our emotional burdens. Angela previously worked in public information providing training to adults and speaking at public events to small and large groups on various technical and non-technical topics. She has counseled low-income and homeless populations for over four years on financial issues through a local non-profit in Austin. And has created curriculum and led small and large mental-health related groups for adults and adolescents on topics such as self-esteem, recovery, family support and career development. Angela also has experience with the Army Career and Alumni Program counseling transitioning service members and their families. Additionally, Angela is a level 1 certified EFT (Tapping) practitioner. EFT is a therapy that combines talk therapy with tapping along acupuncture meridian lines. If you are interested in EFT, you can google it or read this article for a brief introduction."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Angela Funke "Our Mission

To promote and facilitate one's connection to the creative expression of emotions, fostering healing from within.

Talk Therapy Austin provides counseling services for adolescents, families and individuals. Each individual or family has unique needs and Talk Therapy Austin strives to help clients find the counseling and services that meet those unique needs for both short and long term solutions.

What does Therapy look like?

Therapy varies by the clients' needs. Each client is unique and may need a different treatment plan. Some clients come in weekly for appointments, some every other week, others vary. Some like to work from a goal-oriented approach, other are more weekly event driven. Some clients like to incorporate more creative therapies, such as art, into their treatment. Treatment is tailored to each client based on what goals they have and which types of treatment fit with their needs and personality."
