Jonathan McNutt, LPC

Senior Counselor
Sorry! Jonathan is not accepting new clients at this time.

Welcome to Therapy Austin! Having found this page, you’ve already come a long way in the process of connecting with the help and support you need to address what is challenging for you, and I am glad you’re taking these courageous steps toward well-being. I am honored to be considered to partner with you in your journey.

Regardless of the struggle you are experiencing currently, I believe that the ways you are thinking, feeling, and behaving are understandable given your life experience and current situation. You did not choose to end up here, and I’m sure you’ve done your best to handle what is going on as well as you can. We all get stuck sometimes. Working closely together in a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship, we can uncover patterns that are operating in your life currently, and work with the aspects of your situation under your control to create the positive change you’re seeking. Change is possible, and by reading this you are already taking steps towards positive growth and change.

I provide counseling to individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, low self-esteem, and relationship issues. As a counselor, I work from the science-based models of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT). Using ACT, we will work together to connect with what is most important to you in your life (your Values), and develop psychological skills to handle difficult thoughts and feelings effectively, so that they have less impact on you. In CFT, we will focus on ways to relate to painful thoughts and feelings that help to increase emotional ease and well-being. I believe it is possible for each person to enjoy the peace and freedom that comes from relating to thoughts and feelings, rather than from them—it just takes some openness, curiosity, and practice.

You are the expert on your own life, and I will work to tailor counseling to your individual needs and goals. It's important to me that I "walk the talk," and I do not suggest that my clients do anything that I have not also done myself. Clients have described me as warm, safe, non-judgmental, and normalizing.

I have a Master of Arts degree in Professional Counseling from Texas State University. My professional background includes working as an advocate for survivors of domestic violence and as a counselor in Intensive Outpatient settings for substance abuse as well as anxiety and depression. I have worked with individual clients on issues of anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and other life challenges.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, cat (and any other animals that happen to be nearby), reading, playing games, and experiencing art. I am dedicated to my own personal growth, and have long-standing practices of journaling and mindfulness meditation.

If you are interested in working with me, please call me at 512/201-4501.
