Therapy for Texans with an
Austin Frame of Mind

Why Choose Therapy Austin?

Locations All Over Austin

We believe beautiful, comfortable, interesting spaces are integral to mental health. Our offices in North, Central, and South Austin reflect that philosophy. If you prefer to be in your own space, no problem! We offer teletherapy, too.

Flexible Hours, Nights and Weekends

Standard office hours don’t accommodate all clients’ schedules. It’s important to us to offer appointments times that are convenient for you, so we have counselors available early mornings to later in the evenings every day of the week.

Highly Trained, Professional Counselors

Excellent counseling services require well-trained providers. Our mission is to cultivate compassionate, curious, clinically astute practitioners who give you their best. To ensure you get the quality mental health treatment you deserve, we are dedicated to providing ongoing professional and clinical training to all of our counselors.

Local Business and Woman-Owned!

You won’t get that with the latest fad of text-your-therapist-anytime nationwide providers. We are a large and local counseling agency that has intentionally avoided getting gobbled up by out-of-town investors. Therapy Austin was founded by two Austin therapists who are passionate about providing excellent client care to the people in our community and about teaching other therapists how to do the same.

Our Fees Flex, Too

As a private pay agency, it’s important to us to offer our clients some options when it comes to fees. Austin is a diverse community and while many clients can readily afford full-fee sessions, others need a discount. We are proud to be able to accommodate discounts for a majority of our clients and prouder still that this sharing economy is celebrated and sustainable in our agency.

We Won’t Ghost You

It’s a city-wide problem. People seeking help make dozens of calls to Austin counselors and never hear back from anyone. At Therapy Austin, you are guaranteed a response. We have a large staff and an advanced matching system. Your request will be assigned to the Staff Counselor who best meets your parameters at the time. Even if we don’t have what you are looking for because of fee, service, or time constraints, you will still get a call back with appropriate referrals.

Welcome to Therapy Austin! Thanks for checking out my page.  I believe our human emotional experience is vital. Anger can tell us when a boundary is crossed, anxiety can tell us when we need more information, happiness can tell us when our needs are met… We’re often taught that some emotions are good, and some are bad. It’s easy to let ourselves have some feelings, but what happens when we ha...

Hello there! Welcome to the first step in the weird and wonderful journey of therapy. Whether it’s your first time or you’re ready to dive back in, I’m glad you’re here. I believe therapy is a sacred space. It is a time to “turn and face the strange” as David Bowie says. It’s a time to reflect, investigate, and approach the challenges in our lives with honesty and a willingness to grow. My therape...
