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.
