Cathryn Heyman, MA, NCC, LPC

Why authenticity?

Like many people, I spent years listening to well-meaning family and friends only to discover the life that yielded wasn't my own, but some hybrid of theirs. The man I married and divorced, the clothes I wore and that house I owned pleased my mother. The high tech career I chose satisfied my dad. They were proud, but I was not. When I looked in the mirror, I didn't recognize myself. 

To find the me beneath all this, I hired a talented counselor who helped me hear and see myself clearly. Like leaves twisting toward light, listening to myself led to increased confidence, quiet satisfaction and inner peace. I remembered who I was before all the people-pleasing began and rediscovered what was right for me.

This is how I went from programming computers in Chicago to counseling people in Austin, from people-pleasing to genuine self-expression and inner contentment. And, it's how I'm able to do something similar for you. I know authenticity's value and how to get there.
