About The Practice

About Us

Founded in 2020, Austin City Counseling was born in the middle of the pandemic. We are committed to providing high-quality therapy that is effective, approachable, and focused on the issues you care about most. We believe that feeling seen and understood are key to making therapy work. We also believe in walking the walk and our approach to therapy reflects that.

Austin City Counseling is a therapy private practice in Austin, TX. Our office is sandwiched between Zilker Park and Westlake Hills on Bee Caves Road. We are an outpatient practice and see clients by appointment only.

A note from our founder

I started Austin City Counseling with a deep desire to create a space where I could be my authentic self. My goal is for this space to be that for you, too.

We do a lot of asking about you in therapy. I think it is fair that you would want to know a little about me, too.

Professional

I have a M.A. in Counseling Psychology with a Specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the State of Texas (License No. 80074). I am also a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator, trained in Gottman Method (Level 1), and a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200).

After finishing graduate school in 2011, I moved to New York City where I provided counseling services to people who had experienced homelessness. In 2015, I joined the Ending Community Homelessness Coalition in Austin, TX. My work there focused on implementing evidence-based programming for ending youth homelessness in our community. In 2018, I went into private practice with Austin Family Counseling and became an (even more) avid yogi when I completed yoga teacher training. Across all of my experience, I have found that we all yearn to be loved, to belong, and to be significant.

Counseling with me is non-judgemental. I truly hope you come exactly as you are. I promise to be authentic (i.e. human), empowering, and honest in counseling with you. I connect especially well with Millennials, people who are high-achieving and hard on themselves, those who are told they are “wise” for their age, and highly empathetic folks. A common trait I see when I start working with someone new is they have a gut feeling that things could be better, but they don’t know what that is or how to get there (yet!).

Personal

I am a native Texan and grew up a couple of hours outside of Austin. After bouncing around the country through my 20’s, I found my way back to Austin, got married, and planted roots. Best decision ever. When I’m not in the office, you can find me bebopping around small local shops, eating Taco Deli, and trying to keep my plants alive. And when it’s all said and done, you can find me on a patio somewhere with a cold bev in hand.
