Meet Sigal Govrin of Alive Austin

 

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Art Therapist

Why did you become a therapist?

I have always felt connected to helping others and felt a lot of compassion for the human condition. As a therapist I get to guide others in finding their own power to heal themselves and rediscover their authentic self.

What do you think you would be if you were not a therapist? 

If I was not a therapist I would be an artist or teacher of the arts.

More About Sigal: My style is person-centered and integrative, and I believe every treatment goal should be individualized to the client’s needs. Art therapy is a form of expressive therapy (music, dance and movement) that uses the creative process of making art to improve a person’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being. The creative process can help people resolve issues as well as develop and manage their behaviors and feelings, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve self-esteem and awareness.

I work with adults utilizing both talk therapy and art therapy interventions to help reduce anxiety, depression, and to identify other core issues. I am trauma-focused and work very closely with individuals struggling with a history of sexual abuse, domestic violence and other past traumas; or with those who are experiencing current PTSD. I often integrate mindfulness practices and body awareness in session to help support clients and to provide grounding.
