Mary Torkelson, LPC Associate
Supervised by Dr. Sunny Lansdale, LPC
Welcome! Therapy is a collaborative process that addresses the challenges in your life and explores solutions that can lead you to success. Our lives consist of relationships and transitions that affect us in ways that we sometimes don’t expect and find demanding to handle. I can assist in guiding you to examine the past while learning how to create a more rewarding and meaningful life.
Whether you are experiencing the challenges of anxiety, coping with depression, or struggling with the relationships in your life, therapy with me is all about identifying the patterns and behaviors that are not working and finding a positive path that guides you to the life you desire. I also specialize in working with individuals experiencing divorce or the ending of a relationship and bring a sense of compassion and empathy that will help you navigate through this difficult time.
My approach to counseling is a combination of solution-focused and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). The therapeutic process will help us identify self-defeating thoughts and target your strengths. We will set achievable goals that will guide you to desired behaviors that will lead you to success.
A little bit about me: I grew up in Houston, TX, and graduated from Texas A&M University. I worked for many years in the insurance industry in Houston and then Austin until I decided to be a full-time mom. I went through a divorce, and with my kids being older, I re-evaluated the career path I now wanted to pursue. Therapy helped me through the transition of my divorce, and so I chose to obtain my Master of Arts in Counseling from St. Edward’s University. My goal is to help others in their life journey to achieve the happiness they desire.
If you are interested in working together, you can reach me at 512/201-4501, ext. 561. I look forward to working with you.
