Our Mission

Therapy Austin has a dual mission. We are committed to making high-quality therapy accessible to more Austin adults by offering a range of fee options and extended office hours. We are also dedicated to training, mentoring, and shaping counselors into compassionate, curious, clinically astute practitioners with the experience, skills, depth, and business acumen needed to thrive in private practice. These counselors learn how to run a successful counseling business without relying on insurance panels. The agency provides the marketing, the clients, beautiful offices, effective and unique business practices, a culture of support and encouragement, robust weekly CEU trainings, and direct access to ongoing expert and peer consultation. We employ clinicians who are dedicated to developing their own unique craft of long-term counseling.

Therapy Austin counselors report learning with us what they didn't learn in school -- specific treatments, the nuances of practice, how to work with wide-ranging clinical presentations, and how to do the business part of therapy. We are proud to offer all employees a formalized training program.

Therapy Austin garners praise from staff as a "well-oiled machine," maintaining effective systems and explicit policies and procedures, employing an outstanding Leadership Team, and adhering to the highest clinical and professional practices. 

We practice first and foremost from a heart-centered relational place; all further treatments and interventions flow from there. In managing this agency, we take the same relational approach and expect all counselors to share that orientation with their clients and coworkers. We remain steadfastly outside the dictates of managed care in order to maintain, along with our clients, full choice about the course of clients' mental health treatment.
