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.

Hello! I’m Joleen. Going to therapy should be a meaningful and fulfilling experience. When you walk into the room you should feel comfortable to open up about any issues you are experiencing. In our time together we will laugh, cry, have break throughs and find solutions.

I understand the overwhelming weight that anxiety can place on your shoulders, especially when it comes to navigating your emotions, identity, and relationships. If you find yourself in a battle with your own mind, craving security but feeling lost on how to grasp it, know that you’re not alone. Maybe there’s a part of you that wants to explore these challenging emotions but you’re unsure or...

Hello and welcome!  I’ve been where you are now and understand the courage and vulnerability it takes to seek support. Thank you for taking the time to explore what connecting with me may be like.
