My goal is to help guide and support you through the difficulties that life sometimes presents. My passion is to help you work through these times and become stronger and better through the process. I believe that we are resilient and can manage life's obstacles, and would like to be a resource to help you along the journey.
I work with adults, adolescents, and children in the private setting and have worked with children and adolescents in the school setting. I have experience working with depression, relationship issues, marriage counseling, parenting, grief and loss, and anxiety.
I use a client centered approach in order to assist you in reaching your potential towards those goals which are important to you. I also use Cognitive Behavior Therapy tools in order to address certain behaviors that may be interfering with regular life routines. It is important for me to provide a safe and respectful environment while offering you professional quality care.
Jim worked with adolescents and their parents for over 15 years as a middle school teacher, high school teacher and high school counselor. He is now a Licensed Professional Counselor who has been in private practice for 8 years and is EMDR trained.

Jim accepts private pay and a sliding fee scale is available. Payment can be made by cash, check or credit card. He is accepting new clients and is available by appointment on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday.
Are you struggling with anxiety or feeling down and lack energy? These are symptoms of limiting beliefs that are causing you to suffer. The hard times you have are really challenges to grow--in disguise. We can grow the most during these times—it is how we handle a challenge that makes the experience a “grind” or a “growing” experience.
Often it’s often hard to banish fears and doubts by yourself. Counseling is really all about figuring out "what you want” and then supporting you on your path. This is where I come in. My sessions are a balance between encouraging you and challenging you to release your limitations. The focus is on your potential and emphasizes the importance of growth and self-actualization. When you do this, you are capable of facing any of your challenges.
If this makes sense to you, give me a call to see if we are a good fit.

My passion is helping people heal. Healing comes in many forms, including emotional, spiritual, relational, and physical. Healing in one area affects the other areas as well. I use a heart centered, spiritual approach to helping others. Heart centered counseling is an effective and compassionate way of being with you. It helps you be able to speak from the heart, truly be yourself and discover the beauty, strength, and wholeness that you already hold inside of you. Together we can build a strong, safe, nurturing relationship that promotes healing and well-being.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have worked with adults, children and families the majority of my life, in all different capacities. I have training in adult, group, family, adolescent, child and play therapy. I work with all ages, 2 to 102! Working with children is one of my passions. My philosophy in working with children is that I help the child feel that he/she is a unique individual worthy of love, respect, and nurturing. Because of this, they are able to express feelings and work through their difficulties during play, which results in healing. I love working with parents, teaching them the techniques of positive parenting that can lead to healthy, harmonious relationships with their children. I also enjoy working with adults dealing with depression, anxiety, or grief.

Jeff believes the potential for growth and healing already is within the individual. Therapy helps people remove blocks that limit their growth. Individuals can nurture and cultivate these natural tendencies towards the full expression of their individuality. People can experience greater fulfillment in their personal life and relationships through the counseling process.

Hello! My name is Anne Marie White and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with experience providing therapy services to a wide range of clients. I have worked in a number of different therapeutic settings such as: inpatient psychiatric hospitals on both adult and adolescent units, partial and intensive outpatient care, residential treatment center, and private practice. Within these settings, I have experience working with adults, adolescents, couples, and families, doing individual, family, couples, and groups therapy. Clients I have served have been affected by depression, anxiety, substance use, trauma, and relationship and communication challenges.
I am originally from Midland, Texas and moved to the Austin area 5 years ago. I received my undergraduate degree in Communications at Brigham Young University-Idaho and my Masters in Mental Health Counseling at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.
My counseling style is straightforward and empathetic. I use a client centered approach and work to personalize my therapy to each individual. There is no one size fits all in counseling. I believe that counseling is about more than just the mind; it includes mind, body, heart and soul. When one of these elements is left out, healing can be very difficult. My hope is to foster resiliency in each client and help identify unique strengths, gifts, and insights. I work to support the client in developing skills, such as; mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and changing dysfunctional thought patterns. I believe each of us has within ourselves the untapped ability to find the answers and strength to overcome whatever mountain is in front of us.
When I am not working as a therapist, I enjoy spending time with my five children, husband of 18 years, and two dogs. We enjoy doing art, being outside, and going on many adventures together.
I believe in a whole-body approach to counseling that encompasses both bottom up (body-to-brain) and top down (brain-to-body) communication and integration. A lack of cohesion between the physical body and the thinking and feeling brain is often at the heart of many persistent mental health challenges such as depression, anxiety, anger, and overall emotional discomfort and dysregulation. These challenges, in turn, lead to disruptions in relationships, family, work, and other primary areas of life.
I start the counseling journey by first building with each client a sense of comfort, trust, and safety. This is an ongoing process that continues throughout the relationship. I take a team-oriented approach, helping clients to feel guided and supported as they take the lead in their healing journey. As a person-centered counselor, I provide a stable, empathic, and compassionate foundation from which clients can safely explore, learn, and grow to feel empowered and in control of their lives.
I am trained and experienced in working with teens, adults, and families, and specialize in present day impacts of developmental (from childhood) trauma.
My passion is helping people process through some of the most difficult situations life can throw at them. I believe each person has the strength within them to work through these things. Sometimes it just takes finding the right tools and knowledge to access that strength.
I utilize a cognitive behavioral approach and emphasize the importance of meeting each individual where they are. Each person’s needs are different and they are the expert on themselves. My job is to offer the support and tools to help each individual meet the goals they want to achieve.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Associate. I have experience working with adults and teenagers. I am passionate about helping people achieve the best version of themselves based on who they want to be.
I have practiced psychotherapy for 26 years. I believe in a person's capacity to heal, to problem solve, and to progress beyond perceived limitations which is evident in my philosophy of therapy. My approach to human relationships is client-centered and systems oriented.
I use an eclectic mix of therapy types, evidence-based techniques, and best practice models in my work. I practice cognitve behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior skills training, stress management, and play therapy.
I work with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families.
