Therapy Austin
Mentor Program

Our Mentor Program

Founded in September 2019, Therapy Austin’s Mentor program was born out of a desire to provide our Staff Counselors with one-on-one assistance during their early years with the agency that promotes their growth, champions their success, and equips them with practice management skills to confidently and effectively engage with clients. All Therapy Austin Counselors are assigned to a Staff Mentor who provides professional development coaching, performance assessment, collegial support, and connection to the agency. Staff are guided via a curated agency curriculum with clinical underpinnings that provides our emerging Counselors a strong foundation from which to grow and find their unique path to competency in their practice.

Meet Our Mentors

Our Mentors are supportive, relational, and know the ins and outs of Therapy Austin. Mentors help their Mentees reach their goals, providing feedback and encouragement as Staff Counselors learn the ropes, grow their practices, and deepen their clinical work and identity.
