About Me

Hello and welcome! My name is Augustina Garba. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Whitewater with a master’s degree in Counseling in May 2002. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I started out working with adult mental health individuals with schizophrenia and bipolar disorders. During my internship, I was exposed to working with severely abused and neglected. This experience was what inspired me to work with Children and families. It. I now provide individual and family therapy sessions targeting Anger Management for Children and at-risk teenagers. My passion has always been to help bring about changes in the lives of individuals and families and partner with them to create hope in their future.

In 2009, I went into Private Practice. I work with children, adults, and families, providing individual and family therapy sessions. I also work with adult survivors of childhood abuse to help them heal from trauma and to overcome related issues and problems that could develop due to them been abused, ranging from depression, anxiety, PTSD, panic attacks and stress. I work with many individuals and couples in relationship building. I counsel couples with relationship and divorce issues, anger management and domestic violence.

My focus in counseling is to work with you to resolve issues that challenge you and restore self-efficacy to individuals and families. I am supportive in therapy and a good listener. I will collaborate with you, using teaching skills and give you tangible assignments to help you succeed in achieving your goals of finding a long-term meaningful solution. I am consistent and believe in building a trusting and reliable client-therapist relationship.

I look forward to working with you!

I have only had two sessions with Augustina and she has already helped me become the person I want to be. She provides useful tools to use when life happens and I can imagine her talking me to resolve a situation. Thank you Augustina!

The first session was excellent. Good communication and flow of thought and topics. I feel more than confident that I'll have more sessions with Augustina.
