Austin Therapists Taking NEW CLIENTS!

I am hearing so much in the media and from people contacting me that it seems no one is taking new clients. I know from the client side it so so frustrating and discouraging when you are finally ready to “make the call” and then find yourself in weeks or months of working your way down a list of referrals that turn into referrals or endless wait lists. This was a struggle before covid, and now more than ever our community needs mental health support and suddenly have the day time availability and flexibility to actually attend appointments.

No, I am not available fore new clients either since was I near capacity before covid and I always prioritize prior and current clients when scheduling. For most clients, getting on someone’s schedule is much more helpful then sitting on a wait list.

The relationship with your therapist matters so much more than specialties listed in their bio. Give someone a chance! If they don’t get you, talk to them about it and then move on if you can’t work it out. Odds are you still got something out the the experience. There is help out there!

Here are Austin area Therapists that ARE taking new clients as of 12/27/21.

Of course this may change, so I welcome feedback to remove someone who becomes full. This list is not curated and is just barely edited. I do NOT personally know most of them, so please use your own discretion. Each person listed volunteered for this listing and said they have competence in complex trauma, neurodivergence (ASD, ADHD, Sensory), perfectionism, and telehealth. If anything, this is a visual that there is help and an abundance of options.

Hi Priscilla. I have a few spots that opened up. Complex trauma/developmental trauma is my expertise. NARM, SE, PIT(The Meadows/codependency), ART, are some of the modalities I use in my work with clients. Client age range is usually mid 20’s – 60. My clients find me warm, empathic and easy to connect to. I’m on the “older” end of the age spectrum which some people find assuring. I expect my clients to work and collaborate.

Private pay/telehealth. I have a private outside space where I occasionally will see clients.
