Andrea Austin

(LCSW)

About Me

My name is Andrea Austin and I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in Texas with over 7 years of experience working as a Therapist and Social Worker. While working on my Masters in Social Work, I specialized in working with survivors of various types of trauma . Over the past 7 years, I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including Anxiety, PTSD, Bipolar, Depression, ADHD, ODD, Grief and Loss, Life Transitions, Relationships, and Parenting. I've also helped many individuals that need help coping with new or existing medical disabilities that cause major life changes. My counseling style is warm and person-centered as well as holistic incorporating various therapeutic models. At times another person, one who isn't in our immediate circle, can offer a helpful perspective or additional support. It would be my privilege to be that person for you. I believe we can all grow through challenging experiences that life often presents. I’m looking forward to working with you!

Andrea has been super helpful and stable support throughout a very confusing time in my life. She responds in a timely manner and I can count on her for solid advice!

I feel Andrea really cares about me and doing what I feel is best for me or working for me. I would always be grateful to be matched with her.

I have never felt better about counseling. I have already recommended BetterHelp to others.

Andrea has been very helpful. She has given me great instruction on coping mechanisms and how to handle my anger. I really enjoy our sessions because I feel she really listens and wants to help.

This app is my best friend and my mind escape.

Andrea is amazing and has helped me work through a few issues. She even checks in with me when I haven't been as consistent with the app. She keeps me on track to my mental health goals and gives me tools to keep my cool.

I have completed almost two weeks of this program and Andrea is so helpful! The structure of the program overall is very nice. There are several tools to help you work through why you are here. I have had daily communication with Andrea and a full phone session each week. I have been able to work openly with her about why I came. Her suggestions, practices and resources have been so helpful! I feel like this is more of a daily practice approach instead of a once a week session when there is a gap in between. I have goals each day and the practice and support I receive really creates an environment for healing and change. The knowledge Andrea has, her kindness and overall support is exactly what I had hoped for.

I really like her so far! I like that she’s down to earth and she’s not intimidating so she’s easy to talk to.

I have had several different therapist over the years but Andrea is the only one who has actually made a difference for me by offering different paths to reach my goal. I feel like she genuinely cares about helping me be my best. I highly recommend Andrea. She is great!
